Northern Hills Before/After Daycare
Policies and Procedures
Welcome to The Husky Den before and after school daycare. Our goal is to provide a safe, healthy, and fun environment while striving to meet the need of your child.
HOURS OF OPERATION
The daycare program runs in conjunction with the Edmond Public Schools academic calendar. We will be closed during all scheduled breaks.
HOURS: 7-8 am/ 3-6 pm
FEES AND PAYMENTS
Payment is due on Monday of each week, regardless of attendance. Payment must be for the scheduled days and times given previously to the Director. Refunds and/or reductions will not be made for absences and/or extracurricular activities. You will be charged for the number of days for which you have enrolled your child. Payments can be made by check or with cash. A fee of $25 will be charged for any returned checks. Payments must be made in advance or on the Monday of the current week. Payments may be made at the beginning of the month for the entire month or paid in two week increments or weekly on Mondays. Any payments received after Tuesday am will have an added $5 late fee per day. Nonpayment in excess of a week without prior notification to the Director will result in the loss of your child’s spot in the program. It is imperative that everyone makes payments in a timely manner. We are a non-profit program and all payments are used to provide games, equipment, computer software, snacks, and staff salaries.
DAYS OF ATTENDANCE
Parents will need to indicate the specific days your child will be attending and the time (am, pm, or both.) This will help us insure the safety and well-being of each child placed in our care. If you need to change, please let us know in advance. We are a DHS licensed facility and must follow their guidelines. We are approved for a 1:20 teacher/student ratio. When accepting children into the program priority will be given to students who need to attend daily.
Parents will utilize the west end of the front parking lot and enter through the first door of the old entrance. You will need to press the buzzer to notify staff that you are there for a drop-off or pick-up. You will be required to sign your child in and out each day. Children need to be picked up by 6:00pm. After 6:00pm $1.00 per minute will be charged. After three late pick-ups the Director may dismiss the student from the program.
For you peace of mind and the safety of your child, ALL children must be signed in and out by a parent or a person you have placed on your enrollment sheet. Your child will not be released without your authorization and appropriate I.D. Under DHS regulations NO CHILD may sign themselves in or out.
An afternoon snack will be served to the children each day. The menu will be posted monthly. Please indicate on the enrollment form of any food allergies your child may have.
A.M. activities will include games and enrichment activities. A study area will be available for students who may need extra time to study.
P.M. activities will include snack time, recreational activities and rotations. Rotations will include things such as art and crafts, games, teacher directed computer learning, videos, and homework/story time. The children will be grouped by age and all materials used will be age appropriate.
In case of an emergency we can be reached at 405-830-9027
If we have a threat of a tornado we will report to the Northern Hills basement.
Northern Hills has the right to refuse service to a child who is unable to cooperate with staff and/or other students or who is destructive to property. If we have a child who consistently exhibits behavior problems we will:
- Notify Parents
- If the behavior continues, the parent will pick up the child from daycare.
- If the behavior is a continual problem, we will dismiss the child from the program.
We require a two week notice for withdrawal. If you have paid in advance and met the two week notice you will be refunded your remaining balance. Once you withdraw from the program you will not be readmitted for the school year and will lose your seniority for enrollment for the following school year.
