Safety is of the utmost importance, no child will be released to
any parent who is obviously drunk, on drugs, or otherwise impaired in the provider's opinion.
Behavior Management and Discipline Policy
Discipline provides an opportunity to enable a child to develop self-control. When a child is having a difficult time following directions or treating others or property with respect, developmentally appropriate guidance techniques will be used.
These techniques are as follows:
Providing an example for children by speaking and interacting with them in a positive manner.
Rewarding acceptable behavior.
Redirecting a child to an alternate activity.
Brief separation from the group.
(This technique will only be used when a child's behavior harms or is likely to result in harm to the child, others or property.)
Sick Care Policy
Please notify us no later than 8:00 a.m. if your child will not attend care that day. Should your child become ill during his/her day in care, you will be called and we will determine the best course of action regarding appropriate care, which may include the child being picked up and taken home.
Provider reserves the right not to provide care for a child who is, in Provider’s sole judgment, ill or contagious.
No child will be accepted if he/she has any symptoms requiring constant one on one care, has a fever above 99.9, is vomiting, has excessive diarrhea, constant runny nose and/or has green or yellow thick mucus, hacking or continuous cough, any suspicious rash, any illness accompanied by open bacterial infections and/or any severe discomfort, or any potentially contagious disorder.
If there are any questions about whether you should bring your child or not, please call. Please keep your child home whenever they have a fever above 99.9 or during the first two days of a bad cold or cough in consideration of other children and our caregivers. It is important for all of us to think of each other.
Any medication to be given must come in a clearly labeled, original prescription bottle with dosage information. Non-prescription medicine, if needed, will also be administered, if provided by parent. Written permission is required for all prescribed medications that TYCC agrees to administer.
A child returning to child care following a contagious, serious, prolonged illness, surgery or other hospitalization must have written permission by the health care provider to attend child care.

Parents will be contacted and immediate first aid will be given.
An ambulance will be called and the recommendations of the paramedics will be followed.

Parents are responsible for any expenses incurred as a result of emergency room care, ambulance, etc.
Child Abuse Policy
We are required by law to report any sign of neglect or abuse of the children in our care and will promptly do so. We are liable as child care professionals for this responsibility.
Provider Sick Days, Holiday and Vacation Policy
