2021-22 Child Care Parent Handbook

Drop-Off and Pick-up In an effort to protect the health, safety, welfare and privacy of children in our care, NYS licensing regulations do not permit parents or authorized pick-up persons to sit or linger in our program at drop-off and pick-up time, this includes the playground when in use by our program. Parents and pick-up persons are not permitted to approach or engage other children in the program. Parents may not go to their child’s classroom. Under no circumstances will a child be released to anyone, parents included, who shows signs of being under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Password Information Parent Password: The registration form will ask you to specify a password to be used by yourself and our office staff. This password will confirm your identity when you call to inform the office of alternate arrangements, such as when another person will be picking up your child. Custody Agreements A copy of supporting court documentation must be kept on file at REACH CYA regarding custody agreements and/or pick- up restrictions. All information will be kept confidential in your child’s file. REACH CYA cannot prevent a parent from picking up his/her child unless copies of court orders are on file. Phones, Devices, Personal Belongings  Use of social media and the internet is not permitted in the program.  REACH CYA staff are in contact with the REACH CYA office via cell phone.  Use of personal cell phones and devices that can take photographs are not permitted in the program.  Parents may not take photographs of students in the program.  REACH CYA is not responsible for the loss or damage of electronic equipment or personal items. Babysitting Release REACH CYA does not support or sanction the practice of families engaging the services of any REACH CYA employee for babysitting or transportation. In the event staff is engaged by a family, the staff shall be considered an employee of the family and not an employee of REACH CYA. Fundraising & Donations REACH CYA’s child care programs rely solely on tuition payments to meet its financial needs. We may sponsor fundraising events to help purchase equipment and to offset operating costs. REACH CYA welcomes donations of new and gently used toys and games.
