  • Immunization Policy

    Immunization records must be presented upon enrolling and each time your child receives an immunization shot. The Jefferson County Health Department and state licensing requires ALC to have valid immunization record on-file at all times. Failure to submit valid immunization records will result in your child being dis-enrolled.

  • Illness Policy

    The Cabinet for Health & Family Services has strict regulations regarding sick children and mandates that parents must be contacted immediately if their child has a fever of 101 or higher or shows other signs of illness. Parents must remove their child from the center within one hour of being notified. Your child will not be allowed to attend the center the next day after being sent home. Children should be symptom-free before returning. If your child has a fever or a contagious illness, please make other arrangements for their care until they are completely well.

  • Extended Absenteeism

    Please let us know if your child will not be attending for 2 or more days. If you have subsidized childcare, you will be responsible for paying tuition for absences in excess of five days.

    You are eligible for two weeks vacation after your child has been enrolled for 6 months. ALC grants a maximum of two weeks vacation per year during which time there is no charge. Your child cannot attend the center while you are scheduled on vacation nor can you carry over unused vacation time.

  • Nap Time

    Each child is expected to rest (sleep when possible) after lunch each day for a period, not to exceed two hours. We encourage parents to discuss. Please feel free to child's nap habits with his/her teacher. At our center we provides sheets and blankets for each child and is responsible for washing them weekly.

We will not administer any over the counter medication or creams to children under the age of two without a physician's written statement. A written consent must be given for us to administer ointment or lotions. Medication cannot remain in the center overnight. Please take all medicine home. STATE LAW PROHIBITS US FROM TAKING VERBAL REQUESTS TO ADMINISTER MEDICINE.

    Our method of teaching the children self—discipline is to use positive reinforcement and redirection and lots of nurturing. There is no physical punishment or threat of physical punishment.
