Attendance

We hope that Allison's Infant & Toddler Center can assist you and your child in beginning good attendance habits to continue throughout their educational experience. It is very important that your child have a consistent environment in which to grow and develop trusting relationships with teachers who provide care and nurturing during your absence. We ask that you drop your child off and pick them up at approximately the same time each day. This enables the child to develop a sense of routine. A sense of routine is very important in that it aids the child in forming strong relationships with both his school and caregivers.

Parents are required to sign their children in to and out of the center each morning and afternoon. Teachers will take daily attendance and conduct daily health checks.

If your child is going to be out for all or part of the day, please contact us as soon as possible. Children should only be absent due to illness, family emergency, scheduled vacation or other unavoidable circumstances.  If your child’s attendance is inconsistent your family may be placed on the inactive list and your enrollment slot given to another family.

If your child is absent for more then 3 consecutive days due to illness a doctor’s statement is needed upon returning to school. If your child is absent from the program for 5 consecutive unexcused days within a month he/she will be dropped from the program.

A request from extended absence which includes a detailed reason for the absence is available from the Director. In addition, she must approve dates of leave and return. Parents are asked give a 2-week notice before withdrawing from the program. This allows the teachers to help the child with the transition out of the program. It provides time for the other children in the classroom to gain a sense of understanding regarding the situation.

It is important that children attend school everyday. If your child’s attendance becomes a concern, you may receive a home visit from one of our Assistant Directors to determine what assistance might be needed to promote better attendance. With consistent attendance children and families will fully benefit from our early learning program.
