4. What is your departure procedure? Can anyone take my child home?

When a parent picks up their child he/she must sign the child out and including the time on the daily attendance. Attendance sheets are located at the sign out table. If someone other than a parent or guardian is to pick up a child, that person’s name must be on the child’s pick up list and they must show a photo I.D. No child will be released to anybody without written permission and proper identification.

5. What happens if I’m late picking up my child?

Programs are open from the end of the school day to 6:00 pm. If you are late, a teacher will stay with your child until you arrive. There will be a fee of $1.00 per minute assessed for children picked up after 6:00 pm. This fee will be kept by the teacher on duty as reimbursement for his or her time.

6. Termination and Suspension Policy.

Needham Extended Day Program will document and report to parents all incidents, which may lead to termination. If three or more physical incidents occur within one school year, a parent meeting will be requested. Every effort will be made to help the child and parent find ways to cope with the child’s behavior through referrals, management plans and guidance. After careful review, if the program and/or parents feel that the child is a risk to either him/herself or to others in the program they may be suspended or terminated.  This will be reviewed with the Board of Directors, Directors and parents of the child.
