For further details, see Enrollment Application.

Child Security:

Creative Minds Learning Center has taken control of building access and security with the keyless entry system from ProCare. The keyless entry system allows only authorized persons with unique personal identification numbers to open the door and gain access to the building. We also have a video monitoring system in each class that can be viewed in the Directors office.

Sign In:

Each child must be signed in and out each day by a parent or a parent designee. You must sign your first and last name when signing your child in and it MUST BE LEGIBLE.

Only persons listed on the child’s information sheet and emergency form will be allowed to pick the child up from Creative Minds Learning Center.  All individuals must present proper state identification which will be checked and must match with the names on the form.

A parent or another adult must accompany every child to the classroom and notify the teacher that the child is present. Please recognize that for safety reasons children may not walk to their classrooms alone. The Center is not responsible for the child until the parent has signed the child in and a teacher recognizes the child as present. The teacher will release a child at the end of the day to an authorized adult; they will not release the child to a sibling. This will ensure the teacher and parent have a chance to communicate about the day.

If you have any special circumstances please call ahead for assistance. If you are calling to add someone to an “authorized pick up list” we have several steps that must be taken to ensure all children are safe at all times. Please be patient and understand we will be returning your call to the number we have listed for the parent and asking family related questions.

Meals

Meal time should be fun and is a great time for learning. We will serve breakfast, lunch and afternoon snack.  Menus for the month will be posted and available for you. The children and teachers will eat family style in age appropriate classes. The meals are well balanced and prepared on site. They will include fresh vegetables and fruits when available.  We ask that no outside food be brought from home without permission from management.  We will strive to use organic and natural food when readily available.
