Classroom Policies

 

Be on Time 

You may always pick up earlier with notice!

 

Illness & Makeup Policy 

Lets all stay healthy this season by staying home with our children if they are sick.

If your children are sick please contact Ms. Laura to inform that your child will not be attending.   We will stay with your child and comfort them until you arrive.

 

Parking/Drive-Up Policy 

Please drive at no more than 5MPH up the hill to park for drop-off.

No parking in front of bathrooms.

Parking time adjacent to cabin 2 is limited to 15 mins. 

Remember to STOP at all STOP signs to avoid a hefty ticket!!!

 

Separation

At Beeplanet, we would like to have you, or your nanny walk your child in and help them drop off their belongings, put on sunscreen, and wipe their hands before making a bridge to a teacher. I will always greet you at the door and welcome you! If your child is having a difficult time saying goodbye, I will walk you and your child to the car. We will wave goodbye to you and then go find their comfy in their bag and reconnect them to the teacher they were playing with inside. Tears normally last just for a minute before everyone moves onto playing.

 

Discipline

At Beeplanet we rarely have discipline issues given our 3:1 teacher ratio; but we do Supervise, Coach and Redirect a child if they are going to harm themselves, someone else or the environment. These types of interactions normally do not last for longer than a couple of minutes and we always reintegrate the children back into the play environment with lots of new suggestions for socialization.
