Check-in, Security and Emergency Contact Procedures
Check-in opens 15 minutes prior to the service and closes 30 minutes after each service begins. For your children's safety, please escort them to their appropriate area. Older siblings may check children in provided they are of driving age and are accountable to our security and emergency contact procedures.
If you have a child with food allergies, communicate this formerly on your Enrollment Form and remind leaders weekly at the classroom door. After processing your form we will email you our Detailed Allergy Form and Epi-Pen Emergency Care Form to provide us with more information and release us to administer an epi-pen in an emergency.
You may wish to also familiarize yourself with our Allergy Policies and EpiPen Administration Procedures which will be performed in an emergency.
Food allergies are more easily managed if your family is consistent in the service time attended; this enables the leaders for that service to be familiar with your family. During check-in, ask for one of our bright green food allergy stickers for your children to wear alongside their name-tags. An epi-pen may be left with the leader but must be collected at check-out.
Snacks are served in Toddler and Preschool classes and some Elementary classes. To the best of our ability, nut products are not permitted in children's rooms during services and we screen our snacks for both nuts and cross-contamination with nuts. Snacks are stored in containers that are washed weekly and we have ingredient lists anyone is welcome to view. We also have a separate supply of cookies free of most common allergens available upon request. Parents/guardians of food-allergic children are also welcome to bring their own child's snack provided it is nut-free. Outside snacks are sometimes brought in by leaders for special occasions and in these cases we post bright green Special Snack signs to alert you.
If you would like to enroll a child who needs special assistance, Kid’s Quest asks that you accompany your child during your first visit and fill out the intake form to provide Kid’s Quest with essential information to understand and assist your child. Please send the forms to Lidia Rosas.
Custody and Behavior Concerns
If you have a child with a custody or behavior concern, communicate this formerly on your Enrollment Form and remind leaders weekly at the classroom door. After processing your form, we will contact you to discuss your child's specific concerns in detail and determine what communication needs to occur among our leaders. To give you the full attention you deserve, we ask parents/guardians to refrain from attempting to have this detailed communication during services. Also, these concerns are more easily managed if your family is consistent in the service time attended; this enables the leaders for that service to be familiar with your family.
We want all of our children healthy and happy. Please keep children home if they have a fever greater than 99.0 or a contagious illness. To maintain healthy rooms, leaders are instructed not to admit sick children.
