CLC Policies 2020-2021

(Updated 7/20/2020)

New Drop-Off/Pickup Procedures

In adherence with county recommendations, we will limit access to our children’s buildings. CLC drop-off/pickup will be contactless. Here are a few highlights of the changes we are making to drop-off/pickup. (You will receive more detailed information closer to the first day of school.)

Parents and other family members will not be allowed in the children’s buildings at this time. Should parents need to enter the building, they will be required to have their temperature checked and wear a mask.

CLC children will now be dropped off and picked up outside of the Children’s Ministry Building and Saunders Children’s Building. Upon arrival, parents will use a contactless app to log their child in/out and answer a daily health screening questionnaire. Children will have their temperature taken prior to parent’s departure. (More details to come on the new app.)

We have created car tags and child backpack tags for easier drop-off/pickup identification.

Health Requirements

To maintain the healthiest environment at our program, it is vital that children who display symptoms of illness remain at home. Children with any of the following symptoms will not be allowed to attend:

We will require a doctor’s note for anyone who visits a doctor for any of the symptoms to assure they are negative for COVID-19, and to be aware of what illness might be causing their symptoms.

While we know that some COVID-19 symptoms are similar to those of allergies or colds, we reserve the right to deny entrance to those we feel have symptoms that are concerning. This will also apply if any person(s) dropping off a child each day is showing symptoms.

When a child becomes ill, the child cannot return to the program until he or she is symptom-free without medication for 72 hours. CLC reserves the right to request a doctor’s note prior to returning to the program.

Illness During the Day

Case of COVID-19

If your child has been exposed to anyone who has been confirmed as a positive case of COVID-19, the family must inform the CLC Office via e-mail or phone as soon as possible. The child will be required to stay home for 14 days.

If there is a confirmed case of COVID in a CLC class, CLC will notify the county Health Department. CLC will follow the instructions set out by the Health Department which may include:

Health and Safety Guidelines:

Items from Home

Due to the changes in our drop-off and pickup, we ask that you limit the amount and size of items you are bringing to school for your child. We ask that the only items carried in are limited to a diaper bag for younger children and a backpack / lunch box for older children.

As you are planning what to pack in your child's backpack and/or diaper bag, please keep the following in mind:

Parent Communication

We are excited about our new ProCare app (set-up information is coming soon). Since we will not have the regular face-to-face contact we normally have during the drop-off/pick up process, please be sure to check the ProCare App each CLC day. This will be the main source of communication between you and the Director/Teacher. We truly value the clear and frequent communication between parents and teachers, and we will do our best in these new circumstances to maintain the highest level of professionalism and childcare.

Out of Country Travel

Parents will notify the CLC Office anytime they have traveled, or are planning to travel, outside of the United States. CLC has the right to exclude the child from care if he/she or a member of the household has traveled to a country that has been identified by the CDC as an “at risk” country.

Tuition Policy

Should CLC close for reasons beyond our control, the current month’s tuition is non-refundable. The same is applicable should a class be required to self-isolate for 14 days. Parents may give a 30-day paid notification to withdraw from the program if they feel it is in the best interest of their family. Registration and supply fees are non-refundable.

Tuition Payments

Parents have these options for paying tuition:

At this time, we are not accepting walk-in payments. Please feel free to contact the office if you need to make other arrangements.
