Fire drills will be practiced, at this time will explain and practice the drill by crawling out a door. Prior to exiting through the door, we will talk about touching it to determine whether it is hot or not. We will then teach if Hot... to look for another exit (window, etc.). 911 will be explained and practiced. We encourage that you reinforce this at home. Evacuation and safety plan: In case of a fire we have several ways to exit. In case of an earthquake we have our food and supplies in the garage. You will need to purchase an earthquake kit; this will remain with us until your child is withdrawn.

During an Emergency: The alarm will be given and the children will respond as practiced in the drills.
The provider will immediately account for all children.
If the home is damaged or not deemed safe, everyone will evacuate the home through the safest exit.  If the home is safe, we will remain in the house until all children are picked up by an authorized person.
All parents/ Guardians will be contacted by telephone, if possible.

If we must evacuate to an alternate site, a note will be posted near the home (on the front door)  In the event you could not be contacted.

Discipline and Complaints

At Creative Kids Day Care Discipline will be positive guidance. Your child (ren) will learn what appropriate behavior is, what is expected of them, and what will help your child (ren) grow and learn to be able to control their own behavior. Children need adults to teach and help them to develop self-control, and self esteem. 

*I will have realistic limits, I will always explain why, and stay consistent and organized.

* Rules will be kept simple, and I will explain how their behavior can affect others.

*I will give sufficient time to comply with requests. 

*I will notice proper behavior, and give positive encouragement.

*I will give hugs, and show love and tenderness.

*I will be firm, yet gentle. I will control and guide behavior without physical or verbal punishment.

*I encourage appropriate expression of children’s feelings.

*I will encourage problem solving; using words helps them to come to their own conclusions.

*COMPLAINTS:  WE agree to arrange a time to discuss any complaints, questions, or concerns regarding your child’s care. We will work on problem solving that will benefit you, your child and us.
