Childcare Overview on Policies 

My goal is to provide the highest quality of care and education for your child in a home-style learning environment. These child care policies describe some of the ways I provide such care.

On Caring 

Caring for children is my chosen profession. Children are very special and their well-being is my main concern. I truly enjoy talking and playing with each child, and meeting his or her physical and emotional needs. Your child will be loved and treated as a uniquely special person while in my care.

On Communication

Because regular communication is one of the most important components of quality care and education, a variety of ways to communicate with you have been established. Feel free to contact me at any time to see what kind of day your child is having, to share good news, or for any other reason. Please also share your thoughts with me, both positive and negative, as each are important to childcare and to provide the highest quality care for your child.

On Conferences

Because we have a chance to communicate with each other daily at drop-off and pick-up, We generally do not hold formal parent-teacher conferences. However, As director I am happy to meet privately with you if you have a concern or feel that we need time to talk without interruptions. Please understand that evenings will usually be the best time for us to have the uninterrupted time that your concern deserves.

On Privacy

The privacy of all the families enrolled in my program is important to me. I keep all information about children and their families strictly confidential; please do not ask me any questions that could be a breach of confidentiality.

On Notice of Policies

The entrance area is an important source of information including the program’s licensing certificate, the most recent results of the licensing specialist’s visit, my Registry certificate, disease/illness notices and other important information.

Hours of Operation 

Regular business hours for Paisley Childcare. are 7:30 am to 5:30 pm Monday through Friday. The center is closed for the following paid holidays:

  • Memorial Day
  • July 4th
  • Labor Day
  • Thanksgiving Day and “Black Friday”
  • Christmas Eve and Christmas Day
  • New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day

Insurance & Liability

As with all professional businesses, Paisley Hall carries general liability insurance on the premises, the cats, and center-owned vehicles used for child care. Professional liability insurance is also carried for substitute and additional caregivers as well as for the business itself.

Our Open Door 

Parents of enrolled children are always welcome at Paisley Hall to visit, observe, or to stay and play, unless restricted by a court order. If there is a court order restriction a copy of the order needs to be submitted to the center. While your child is enrolled in the center please feel free to stop by any time, but be aware that afternoon nap time is generally not a good time to visit. Parents who wish to spend extended time with their child during the day should plan to do so at home rather than at the center. For safety’s sake, parents of previously enrolled children, grandparents of enrolled children, and all other visitors should call ahead of time to make an appointment to visit.

On our Orientation

Starting in a new setting can be an exciting, yet scary, experience for a young child. Even children who are looking forward to child care may become apprehensive when they realize that you are not going to be there all day. This feeling is a normal reaction. Since children often sense parents’ apprehension it is important for both parents and children to be comfortable with the new routine. I will be happy to help you and your child through the orientation period as necessary. Although I do not have a formal trial period, please recognize that it may take several weeks for a child to fully adjust to his/her new routine.
