Tuition is to be paid the first day that your child attends the program.

Please let the office know if special arrangements need to be made.

There are no refunds, credits, or make-up days for absences due to illness, vacation, or inclement weather or public health emergencies.


Once the program has started, a two week notice is required when withdrawing your child from the program.

Full tuition is still required for the month that you withdraw your child.

ATTENDANCE

We encourage you to arrive in a timely manner to establish a predictable routine for your child, help keep the class on schedule and avoid disruptions. We cannot accept early drop-offs. Prior arrangements must be made for any drop off after 9:30am.


Please email or call the Starbright office at (405) 728-4778 if your child will be absent due to illness or other reasons. You may call the night before or early in the morning the day your child will be absent. Also, if your child’s teacher gave you her contact info, please feel free to contact her in case of absence.


We are happy to accept drop-ins for children enrolled in the program. The drop-in fee is $30 per day.

Please contact the office or the child’s teacher before school begins to inquire about drop-in space availability.


Parents who are consistently late for pick up may be charged a late fee of $10.

discipline

In the case of a discipline issue, the staff uses developmentally appropriate strategies according to our policies listed below:


Diverting attention to another activity


Withdrawing the object of contention


Age appropriate Time-Out


Behavior concerns of a persistent nature including biting and aggression will be discussed with the parents and could result in moving the child to another room or the child might be required to take a break from the program.

PERSONAL ITEMS

Labeling Items: Please label everything you send with your child’s name.

If your child takes a pacifier, please include a pacifier clip.


Clothing: Play clothes are most comfortable and appropriate. We prefer closed toe shoes for the safety of your child. Children under 2 should have a change of clothes in their bag. Two-piece outfits are helpful for children that are potty training. 


Also, if your child is wearing a pull-up, we request that you send brands that use Velcro sides.

Children should not bring toys or other items from home unless it is something they need for rest time.

Any items sent for rest time will be kept in their bag until needed.


If you choose to wean your child from a pacifier/bottle, please try to do so during a school break.

This will help your child transition easier in the home setting.

POTTY TRAINING

We want to be supportive during potty training, however we have a limited number of bathrooms, staff, and scheduled potty breaks. It is helpful if potty training begins when the program is not in session. If your child is unable to fully communicate their potty needs or has frequent accidents, we may ask for Velcro pull-ups to be provided.

Please notify us if your child has any allergies, dietary restrictions, or any other health issues of which we need to be aware.

OTHER ITEMS

Medication

We are willing to give your child medication when necessary. We must have a permission card on file with

parent’s signature and instructions for dispensing the medication.


Naptime

Each class has a rest time during the day. Children do not have to go to sleep, but they are required to rest quietly. Please bring a nap mat for your child to rest/sleep on. The nap mats will be stored in the classroom and sent home at the end of the summer session.

If your child is unable to consistently rest quietly during rest/nap time, we might schedule a pick-up time for your child after lunch. 

Tuition will remain the same if this should occur.


Food

Each child brings a lunch and two drinks for the day. Please send one drink for snack time and the other for lunch time; no-spill cups are required in all rooms. Lunches should include fingers foods that your child can handle on their own and require

no special preparation or refrigeration. Please do not send glass containers or carbonated drinks.

Church of the Servant is not a peanut/tree nut free facility. If your child has a food allergy, there will be accommodations put in place for that classroom according to the degree of allergy. Each room is supplied with a list of all the food/medical allergies and your child’s teacher will inform you of any known food allergies that will require special attention.


Social Networking

We use Facebook and the Remind App for reminders and announcements throughout the year. 

If you have any questions on how to get connected to either of those, please contact the office.

Please be respectful on any social networking site. If something happened while your child was at our program and you have a question, please do not post on your child’s teacher’s personal page. Most teachers are comfortable giving out their personal contact information to the parents so that you can contact them directly. If it is an immediate concern, 

please email starbrightokc@gmail.com, call (405) 728-4778, or visit the Starbright office.


Donations

We work to keep our fee and tuition as low as possible for our families while still providing a superior program. 

Any donations of supplies are appreciated.
