Daycare Policy FAQs

Can parents drop by whenever they’d like or swing by to breastfeed?

What are your visitation policies in general? Who else is allowed to visit during care? Parents can come by anytime.

They can breastfeed if they’d like. People allowed to visit or pick up the children must be on the authorized list.

What happens if we’re late to pick-up or need to miss a day due to vacation or illness? (payment still due, etc.)

Payment is due for the full week. You are paying for a spot in the program and not by the day. If you’re late to pick up, you will be subject to The Glen Academy’s late fee.

What’s your sick-child policy? What are your policies regarding immunizations?

If a child goes home sick, then they must be fever-free for 24 hours WITHOUT the use of fever-reducing medication like Tylenol. The same policy applies if they miss school for sickness. We need up-to-date shot records at all times. We will notify you 30 days before the shot records expire.

Do you potty-train? If so, what is your procedure?

Yes, we ask what methods the parents use at home and attempt to use the same to potty train during the day so the child is not confused.

Do you transport children in a vehicle?

We transport elementary school children to and from local schools and bring them back to supervise homework and do fun activities and outdoor play. During the summer we will do summer camp with field trips to the movies, science center, parks, etc.

How, and how often, do you sanitize the toys and materials used by the children?

Yes, each classroom is sanitized every night when we close. Toys are sanitized with bleach free disinfectant.

How do you keep parents up to date on their kid’s daily activities or behavior? Do you offer a daily report?

Parents are informed daily about their child’s progress through a variety of communication methods, including the ProCare app.

What security measures do you take for your facility?

We have a full camera system throughout the entire building. Parents are granted access to the WatchMeGrow app with which they may check in on their children throughout the day. Additional security measures include alarmed exit doors, as well as PIN code activated entry points.

Are you licensed? Are you accredited? By whom?

We are licensed by the Florida DCF. Our school is in the process of earning GOLD Seal Certification/APPLE Accreditation. We will be happy to discuss the steps to this processs during your visit!
