The Family Connection

 

The relationship between families and our staff is vital to the success of a child´s learning experience. A partnership must be formed the first day with open communication and understanding that the development and growth of the child is our top priority. You can assist and help ensure a smooth transition by doing the following:
 

  • Sign children in and out at the front desk and then escort them to their designated class.
  • Have all forms completed promptly.
  • Update forms as needed when changes occur - new phone number, email, resident address, etc.
  • Keep staff informed of special needs or changes that might affect your child´s behavior.
  • Notify us if your child is ill. Do not bring an ill child to the school.
  • Notify us if your child will be absent.
  • Notify us if you will be later than usual picking up your child.
  • Provide a change of clothes marked with your child´s name. (We are not responsible for lost clothing.)
  • Children should be dressed properly for the weather and play.
  • Do not allow children to bring toys, however special nap time blankets are allowed.
  • We encourage participation in our special events.
  • Attend scheduled family meetings and conferences.
  • Don't hesitate to ask questions and address concerns as they arise. It is our ongoing goal to provide a learning environment where everyone has the opportunity to excel. 

 

Discipline

 

At Kids ´R´ Kids of North Flower Mound we use a method of "redirection" to guide your child(ren) toward appropriate behavior. If a child is engaged in behavior not conducive to a safe and happy learning environment, the teacher will "redirect" the child toward appropriate behavior. (The use of physical punishment and harsh language is prohibited.) Parents or guardians are required to abide by the Kids `R´ Kids Discipline Policy any time they are on school property.

 

Dismissal Policy

 

  • The staff will work with each child to fulfill the needs of that child, and every effort will be made to provide a positive learning experience. Special needs will be accommodated when possible.
  • Kids ´R´ Kids reserves the right to ask parents to make alternative arrangements for care if it is determined that a child´s needs cannot be met or the child has not adjusted to group care provided by Kids 'R' Kids. In the event behavior becomes disruptive to the program or becomes a problem that poses an unsafe situation for the child or other children in the class, alternative arrangements will be required.
  • If you, as a parent, are uncooperative in completing and returning forms, fail to pay your tuition on time, fail to follow any state or county regulations, or fail to follow any Kids ´R´ Kids Policy or Procedure, it may be necessary to dismiss your child(ren) from the Academy.

 

Kids ´R´ Kids reserves the right to change or revise any policies, procedures,

or tuition/fee schedules when deemed necessary. Written notification will be provided to families.
