Written Policy

Mother's day out; Written Policies    Transportation: Mother’s Day Out does not transport children.  If a child is injured while at MDO and requires transport to a hospital, 911 will be called and an ambulance will transport the child.   Field Trips: Due to the drop-in nature of our program, where children are arriving and departing at all hours of operation, MDO does not do field trips.   Children who arrive late: Due to the drop-in nature of our program, we welcome children at any time during our hours of operation.  All classes remain on the church premises at all times.   Medications: MDO requests that parents administer medications at home.  Should a child require medications during MDO hours, a written order or prescription form from the child’s doctor would be required.  Medications must be in their original labeled container, and labeled with the child’s first and last name.  Medications would be kept in an area inaccessible to children; if refrigeration were required, they would be stored in a leak-proof container in a designated area of a food storage refrigerator. Emergency medications, such as inhalers and epinephrine would be kept in an area inaccessible to children but available to staff trained in administering medications.   Parent/Teacher Conferences: Due to the drop-in nature of our program, MDO is not required by the state to conduct formal parent/teacher conferences.  MDO staff does communicate with the parents on a day-to-day basis regarding their child.   Withdrawal of Children: Due to the drop-in nature of MDO, parents sign no contracts and are free to use our services as much or as little as they wish.  Parents may dis-enroll their child at any time with no notice. MDO reserves the right to withdraw services to a child/family if: -fees are not paid -required medical/other forms are not provided -unresolvable discipline issues exist -MDO staff feels we cannot reasonably meet the needs of the child in our setting
