Atkins ABC Mission Statement
Atkins ABC exists to provide a safe, developmentally appropriate environment for preschool children. Our focus is to offer a stimulating education experience, which promotes each child’s cognitive social/emotional, physical, and cognitive development. Our goal is to support children’s desire to be life long learners.
The classrooms open at 7:45 A.M. and close at 2:45 P.M. Upon arrival, parents are expected to:
Escort their child to the bathroom door and instruct the child to use the restroom and wash their hands. Remain in the hallway until your child has completed these tasks. DO NOT LEAVE YOUR CHILD UNATTENDED.
Escort their child to the cafeteria where you will sign them in.
Ensure that the child is under the supervision of his/her teacher and health check has
been completed prior to departing from the classroom.
NOTE: ONLY ABC students and staff are allowed in the restrooms.
Parents are expected to sign their children out in the afternoon each day prior to removing them from the classroom. Parents are also expected to pick their children up no later than 2:45.
For the protection of the children, each child will only be released to his/her parents or other persons authorized on the enrollment form. If your child is to be picked up by anyone other than yourself, the following are required:
A signed and dated statement that includes the person’s name and parental permission for the child to be released to that person prior to the intended pick up date.
A picture identification and signature will be required prior to the child’s departure from the room.
No child will be released to anyone who is under 18 years of age unless parents have conferenced with the program director.
No child will be released to anyone who is suspected to be intoxicated or under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
If custody arrangements change, the program director must be notified immediately in writing and provided with copies of the court order. The program has no legal authority to refuse either parent the right to pick up a child unless the director has been provided a copy of the court order.
Any visitor to the child care building must be approved and cleared through the elementary school office, the Director of the ABC, and the classroom teacher.
