Attention to detail is the key to an unsurpassed early education experience
Policies for excellence and peace of mind
The relationship between families and school staff is vital to the success of a child’s early learning experience. Through the use of open communication, we believe building a teacher-parent partnership will benefit the child in making a positive connection between school and home.
Breakfast, lunch, morning and afternoon snacks are available at Kids ´R´ Kids. Please refer to the menus provided at the center and on our website under Parent Area.
For bottle-fed children, parents must provide prepared bottles with their child’s name and date. Baby food is provided by the parents as well. All infant items should be marked with the child´s first and last name and placed in their child`s provided area.
Weekly menus for children on table food are available for review.
Please see the Director for information regarding special diets and allergies.
You will be informed of all rates, discounts, late fees, breakfast charges, activity fees, registration fees, check return fees, and any school-specific fees.
Transportation is provided to and from public or private elementary or grade schools designated by the Center.
Transportation Agreements are signed once for each school year.
Vehicle Emergency Forms must be completed and information kept up to date.
If your child will not be transported by the Center to school, or will not be picked up by the Center from school at the end of the school day, you must notify the Center in advance. Please call the center half an hour prior to your child`s scheduled pick-up.
Please see school for activity calendar and field trip schedule.
Internet access to your child’s classroom is by password only. By enrolling your child at Kids ‘R’ Kids you consent that your child(ren) may also be seen on the Internet by other persons viewing with passwords.
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.
The Center is equipped with a weather band radio, a fire alarm sprinkler system and fire extinguishers. Fire and severe weather drills are conducted every 30 days.
If there is an emergency situation and it becomes necessary to close the Center, parents will be notified to make arrangements for early pickup.
If there is inclement weather and it is determined that the Center will not open, parents should tune into WRAL for closing information.
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. Our school will evacuate to Heritage Middle School in the event of emergency.
Parents will be notified of the situation and you will be required to pickup your child(ren) as soon as possible.
At Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academies 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 or harsh language is prohibited.
Parents or guardians are required to abide by the Kids ‘R’ Kids Discipline Policy any time they are on Center property.
The relationship between families and school staff is vital to the success of a child’s early learning experience. We believe building a teacher-parent partnership, using open communication, will benefit the child in making a positive connection between school and home.
