what do i need to bring for my child each day?
Please label all of your child's belongings. For infants, parents need to bring diapers, wipes, ready-to-drink bottles, and several changes of clothes. For toddlers, pull-ups, wipes, several changes of clothes, and a nap mat and blanket. For preschoolers, a "just-in-case" outfit, and a nap mat and blanket will suffice.
Do the employees have first aid and CPR training?
All employees at OFC are required to complete Infant, Child, and Adult First Aid and CPR classes, as well as Bloodborne Pathogens and Shaken Baby Syndrome trainings, in addition to 24 hours annually of early childhood education classes.
When are payments due? is the weekly rate the same if a day is taken off?
All payments for child care are due every Monday, or the first day of the week your child attends day care. There is a $33 late fee if paid after this time. Yes, payments are due regardless of any days taken off for various reasons, as well as holidays that fall on a weekday that the center is closed, but that your child would've regularly attended. We do allow one week of unpaid vacation time per enrollment year for part-time families, and two weeks per year for full-time families after the child has been enrolled at the center for 6 months.
How is the curriculum implemented in the rooms?
We are a Christian daycare, and as such, we include biblical teachings in our everyday learning. Additionally, we use the "Mother Goose Time" curriculum (check it out at mothergoosetime.com) in our 'Cheerful Givers' Early Preschool Room as well as our 'Christian Soldiers' Preschool Room. The curriculum is aligned with our state's early learning standards as well as kindergarten preparedness goals.
