††††††††

Medical Emergency

†††††††† If a child becomes ill, injured, or has an adverse reaction to prescribed medication while at the Center, the parent(s) or emergency contact person will be notified immediately. If it is necessary to seek immediate medical attention for a child, the child will be transported to the designated medical facility. The childís vehicle and emergency medical permission forms, as well as the health information file, will accompany the child.

†††††††† In the event of an occurrence of a communicable disease as outlined by the Department of Health, parents will be notified within 24 hours, or the next business day.

†††††††† Severe weather, Fire or Emergency Situations: If an emergency situation develops such as severe weather, fire, physical damage to the building, or any other situation that poses a threat, the safety of the children is our first concern. If there is an emergency situation, and it becomes necessary to close the Center, parents will be notified to make arrangements for early pickup.

†††††††† The Center is equipped with a fire alarm system and fire extinguishers. Fire and severe weather drills are conducted according to state and county regulations every 30 days and 90 days respectively.

†††††††† If there is inclement weather, and it is determined that the Center will not open, parents will be notified via text messaging and advised to check ANAís Learning Center Facebook Page.

†††††††† If an emergency situation develops and it is determined that the building or premises are unsafe, your child(ren) will be transported to a safe location. Parents will be notified of the situation, and you will be required to pick-up your child(ren) as soon as possible.

†††††††† We maintain a Center free of alcohol, drugs, tobacco use and gangs. The use or presence of alcohol, drugs, and tobacco is prohibited in the building or anywhere on the grounds by Center staff, parents, or anyone visiting the Center.

† Discipline

At ANA's Learning Center we use a method of 'redirection' along with a 'positive behavior system' 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 teachers will 'redirect' the child toward appropriate behavior. The use of physical punishment or harsh language is prohibited.

Dismissal Policy

The staff will work with each child to provide a positive learning experience. Special needs will be accommodated as and when possible. ANA's Learning Center reserves the right to ask parents to make alternative arrangements for care if it is determined that a childís needs cannot be met, or the child has not adjusted to group care provided by the Center. 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 Policy or Procedure, it may be necessary to dismiss your child(ren) from the Center.
