Kindergarten Care 2016-2017 Enrollment Changes

Important Dates to Know: June 22, 2016 and July 8, 2016

Mt. Lebanon Extended Day Program has changed our Kindergarten Care Program enrollment procedures because the Mt. Lebanon School District has changed it’s procedure on assigning children to Morning or Afternoon Kindergarten.

Children starting Kindergarten in the 2016-2017 will be assigned the Morning or Afternoon Kindergarten session by the school district, and parents will receive a letter that the district will start mailing on June 8, 2016 to confirm the child’s designated kindergarten session.

So MLEDP has changed our Pre-Registration Procedure:

The New MLEDP Procedure:

Enrollment for the MLEDP Kindergarten Care will open on Wednesday, June 22, 2016.

The online Pre-Registration Form in addition to providing your contact information, will ask for your assignment (Morning or Afternoon Kindergarten) you were given by your child’s school. No Pre-Registration Forms will be accepted without the assignment information from your child’s school.

After submitting your pre-registration form, you will receive an e-mail confirmation that your request has been received. If we are full, you will be notified that you are on the Wait List.

Once you receive your Email notification that your pre-registration is confirmed, you will have until Friday, July 8, 2016 to submit your completed Kindergarten Care Enrollment forms with a copy of your letter from the school district stating your child’s Kindergarten assignment - Morning or Afternoon.

IMPORTANT: If your forms have not been received by July 8th, 2016, your space will be offered to a family on the Wait List, and you will then be placed on the Wait List.

The Kindergarten Care Program is a complement to the school day, giving children a safe place to relax, be with friends, play games, and most importantly have fun.

Kindergarten Care is a wraparound program of care and enrichment for children who attend half-day kindergarten in Mt. Lebanon.

At Kindergarten Care the children will have a choice of activities, some planned around a theme, and some center activities that are always available. The activities, games and centers are arranged with the children's developmental level and expressed interests in mind. They include art, music, cooking, science, stories, dramatic play, board and card games, crafts, manipulative and building tools, and sports. There is time each day for outside play when the weather permits, or active indoor play. Field trips and special guests at the center are an integral part of the program. Nutritional snacks (prepared by both children and adults) are provided at mid-morning and mid-afternoon.

The Kindergarten Care program is not a repetition or a continuation of the school's kindergarten program.  It complements the kindergarten experience by providing opportunities for playtime and exploration of your child's own individual interests, as well as a chance to develop and practice age appropriate social skills. The children are encouraged to make choices and to help plan the activities.

  • The Kindergarten Care Program has a morning and afternoon session
  • Kindergarten Care children are transported to or from their school to our center on the MLEDP bus
  • Parents will be provided an Orientation Packet

This is not a continuation of the school day.

 

Kindergarten Care Center is open:
7:00 AM to 6:30 PM
Monday through Friday.

NOTE: Children not attending our Kindergarten Care Program who need care only before AM Kindergarten (7:00 - 8:45 AM) or only after PM Kindergarten (3:30 - 6:30 PM) must sign up for School Year Care, not Kindergarten Care.

NOTE: Children not attending our Kindergarten Care Program who need care only before AM Kindergarten (7:00 - 8:45 AM) or only after PM Kindergarten (3:30 - 6:30 PM) must sign up for School Year Care, not Kindergarten Care.

DELAYED START - On the mornings that there is a Delayed Start for school, the school-age and kindergarten care centers will open at their normal time; 7:00 a.m.

Special Note: On days when there is a School Delay and if there are Unsafe Weather Related Travel Conditions for our staff, MLEDP reserves the right to open later or close for the morning session. Unsafe Weather Related Travel Conditions usually means there is: black ice, icy snow-covered roads, or impassable roads for our staff. FYI: When this unusual situation occurs, we provide these two media outlets with our Delay or Closing information: KDKA-TV and WPXI-TV. They usually post it on their websites as well.

A DELAY BECOMES A CLOSING - If a Delay becomes a School Closing while your child is in our care, parents will be notified of the closure by phone and will need to pick up their child.

SCHOOL CLOSED PRIOR TO 7AM - If the school district announces that the schools are closed prior to 7:00 a.m., MLEDP is also closed.

Tuition Credits Not Given
Credits are not given for absences, illnesses, vacations, announced school closings, or closings due to weather, water, or emergency situations.

On scheduled district-wide in-service days, when school classes are not in session, but the school building is open, MLEDP will operate for the whole day; 7 a.m. - 6:30 p.m.

Families have the opportunity to sign up for these days, if they need child care.

The fee charged for in-service days is not included in the contracted care and will be billed separately. Due to traditionally low attendance on these days, MLEDP combines sites.

Parents will receive information about programming and center locations for these days from their center director.

Mt. Lebanon Extended Day Program is required by the DHS to have parents review their important information, at a six-month interval after enrollment.

After reviewing your child’s information from your current Registration Schedule Payment Agreement and your Parental Consent & Emergency Contact Form, download the Periodic Review Form, complete it and return it to:

There are two (2) Summer Fun Enrollment Forms:

2 - Child Health Report Form

NOTE 1: If you are new to the program or we do not have a valid Child Health Assessment Form on file (valid for one year), you and your doctor must complete the Child Health Report Form prior to your child participating in the Summer Fun Program.

This is a requirement of the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services

NOTE 2 - AND THIS IS A BIGGIE

In Adobe Acrobat Reader, once you use the Fill & Sign Tool > Sign, and place a signature on the document, and then SAVE the document, you CAN NOT ALTER the form or add anything. Saving the form with a signature on it, locks the form. This is a security function of Adobe Acrobat Reader.

Saving the document with an electronic signature is the key function. You can add signatures as you move through the document, as long as you DO NOT SAVE it until it is completely filled out.

Once you Save a form with an Electronic Signature on it
(using the Fill & Sign Tool > Sign) it is LOCKED FOREVER

Suggestions - Recommendations:

  1. Fill out the form in one sitting, and DO NOT save the form until you have completed the entire form with all appropriate information and all signatures
  2. If you plan to complete the form over time or just want to be safe, we suggest that you DO NOT add any signatures until the form is completely filled out, then add all your signatures at one time at the end of the process. Use the checklists for each section as a guide to make sure you have all the appropriate signatures for each section

Note:
The MLEDP weekly enrollment minimum has changed as of July 1, 2014

Children may be enrolled for morning and/or afternoon sessions that meet the weekly minimums.

A minimum of two mornings of weekly scheduled care is required for morning enrollment.

A minimum of three afternoons of weekly scheduled care is required for afternoon enrollment.

Tuition payments are made in 9 installments. The calculation is: weekly tuition multiplied by the number of weeks of care in the school year divided by 9 months. Each installment billing will be the same unless additional days of care are added or Long Day care is used.

Schedule changes within a scheduled week are not charged, however changes made in that week resulting in additional care are charged. Unused days are not credited.

If your child has a part-time schedule, a parent may request a substitution of another session within the week (morning for morning or afternoon for afternoon) without a tuition charge.

Two weeks written notice is required for schedule changes or withdrawal from the Kindergarten and School Year programs.

Tuition is calculated and pre-paid using the specific schedule of days submitted on the contract. Invoices are mailed 3 times during the summer for June, July, and August schedules.

Changes in the child care schedule may be made until May 15 without charge. After May 15 there is a fee for changing the schedule - see page 4 of the Registration Schedule Payment Agreement (RSPA).

Schedule changes within a scheduled calendar week are not charged, however, changes made in that calendar week resulting in additional care are charged. Unused days are not credited.

If your child has a part-time schedule a parent may request a substitution of another session with the calendar week without a tuition charge. Unused days are not credited.

15 Days Past Due: clients will be contacted by phone or letter.

30 Days Past Due: clients will be contacted by the executive director and notified that care will terminate once their account is 31 days past due. Late payment fees apply.

For re-enrollment of the client's child who had care terminated, the client will be required to pay all past due amounts and late payment fees, prepay tuition equal to 3 month enrollment and pay the standard registration fee.

MLEDP reserves the right to take any and all action legal and otherwise, deemed necessary and desirable for the collection of unpaid account balances past due. Such action may include reporting the client to a credit-reporting agency.

Scheduled district-wide in-service days are billable.

No Tuition Credits are Given for absences on Long Days.

Child Care is provided on individual school Act 80 days and Early Dismissal days at no additional charge.

It is the policy of MLEDP to comply with any and all orders of the Court of Common Please, Family Division regarding any court-approved child custody arrangement.

Each custodial parent must file a copy of any applicable court order with the Executive Director of MLEDP within thirty (30) days of receipt of that order.

In the event a court order conflicts with our minimum attendance policy, the Executive Director or Executive Board will reconcile any differences.

Our centers follow standard procedures, to ensure a welcoming and safe environment for your child.

MLEDP sites meet or exceeds the adult to child ratios set by the DHS regulations for day care licensing

The regulations state a 1 to 12 adult to child ratio for young school-age children: K through 3rd grade

A 1 to 15 adult to child ratio for older school-age children: grades 4 and 5.

For special activities and field trips, a lower ratio is maintained.

In general, staff members will give redirection to a child when a child does not want to participate in an activity or challenges other children when speaking or playing.

Working on the development of self-discipline, decision-making skills and responsibility for your own actions will be the manner in which the staff will attempt to resolve inappropriate behaviors in a group.

Any behavior, which may put a child’s safety at risk or the safety of other children at risk, will be investigated and could be cause for dismissal from the program.

Continuing instances of children choosing to make inappropriate choices may result in parent conferences or cessation of childcare.

Safety and consideration for the well being of the entire group will be the guiding consideration.

If your child is expected to arrive after school at one of our centers and the child does not arrive within 5 minutes of school dismissal, and the center was not notified of a schedule change for the day, you will be contacted.

If no communication is made with you within 15 minutes the police will be called to assist in finding your child.

WE MUST HAVE A PHONE NUMBER ON FILE, where you can be reached during MLEDP operating hours.

Call your center. Voice Mail is available 24/7.

Parents must notify the center of a change or absence by:

  • Voice Mail
  • eMail
  • Written on the Parent Notes log at the center

If you are unable to pick up your child by 6:30 PM, you must contact the center to inform them as to the identity of the person picking up your child. Make sure they have a Photo ID and the Password.

If your child has not been picked-up by 6:30 PM we will call you. If no communication is made with you 6:45 PM, the emergency contact you provided will be contacted for pick up. Should the center not be able to reach you or an emergency contact, the police will be called to assist with locating you.

Child Care cannot be provided after 6:30 p.m. Parents who are consistently late will be asked to make arrangements to have another person pick up their child everyday or they will be asked to leave the program.

Children are not allowed to leave the center on their own.

With advanced notice, an adult who has your permission to pick-up your child may sign out your child. ID will be requested.

Children are not allowed to make their own arrangements to leave the center.

At the Parent Center, you will find 2 things:

  • The Attendance Sheet
  • The Parent's Note Log

Attendance Sheet is your Sign-in and Sign-out log. Your child must be Signed-In and Signed-Out of the center every time. Only an adult may Sign-In or Sign-Out your child.

An adult is defined by DHS as 18 years of age or older

The Parent's Note Log is to notify us as to any changes in your child's schedule.

  • Please use the designated parking areas
  • Turn off your car
  • Do not leave children unattended in your car when you are dropping off or picking up your child

In case of minor illness or injury, a member of the staff will attend to your child's needs.

In the case of a serious injury or a illness, only first aid treatment will be given by the staff, 911 will be contacted, and the parents will be notified.

Remember, an emergency contact number where parents can be reached must be on file at the center.

A monthly fire drill is conducted at each site. Sites have both internal and external evacuation locations

Parents are notified if the children are moved to one of the designated community evacuation sites:

Refer to the Emergency Plan Information panel on the home page.

Providing for the fun and well-being of the children is the primary goal of your child's center.

All the programs follow a programming model called ACE: Active, Calm, Eating. Children make choices for the activities they will do.

A nutritious snack is available, frequently made by the children. Homework assistance is available. Time is allotted for active play, quiet time, creative play and socializing with friends.

Children will be asked to follow the ID Tag System at their center, to put away things with which they have played, to wash their hands before snack, and to clean up after themselves following snack.

Appropriate clothing, including shoes, is needed for active play inside and outside. Limited space at sites does not permit storage of clothing.

Children without appropriate clothing for the weather outside or for activities on the playground or in the gym may be asked to forego the activity for their own safety.

Children will follow the school-community rules while on the playground.

Some playground equipment may not be available for use while at the extended day program, due to DHS regulations for childcare licensing, which may differ from Department of Education regulations.

We must have an accurate and up to date telephone number in case of emergency.

Notify MLEDP immediately if you change your telephone number or address, or if the telephone number or address for your emergency contacts change.

Staff members must be able to reach someone during MLEDP hours of operation for safety reasons.

Please do not send special toys, or other favorite items with your child. MLEDP will attempt to locate lost items but is not responsible for lost items, including cell phones, electronic toys or gadgets.

Children are responsible for storing their belongings in the designated location at the center. Whenever possible, please put your child’s name on jackets, backpacks, lunches and other personal items.

Lost and Found: All found items will be held for 15 days.

The snack menu is provided ahead of time to parents.
Menu planning takes into account: allergies, dietary needs, and nutrition.

Important: Parents need to inform the staff of any food allergies their child might have.

For your child's safety, parents must make staff members aware of any allergies: food, asthma, bee stings, etc.

This information is required to be filled out on the Parent Consent-Emergency Contact Form. It also doesn't hurt to tell your Center Director.

Medications provided to the center for your child, must be kept up-to-date or they can not be administered.

Parents will need to make alternative care arrangements if your child has any of the following conditions:

  • Head Lice
  • Draining Sores or an Undiagnosed Rash
  • Eye Discharge or Pink Eye
  • A Fever of 100 Degrees or Higher

Transportation is provided only for the Kindergarten Care Program and field trips during the school year and summer program. A Pennsylvania Certified School Bus driver drives the MLEDP School Bus.

The school bus undergoes two Pennsylvania Motor Vehicle inspections annually, and one Pennsylvania State Police School Bus inspection annually.

The MLEDP School Bus contains seat belts and MLEDP requires the children to wear them, although the State of PA does not require the wearing of seat belts in school buses.

The possession or use of any weapon or a look alike weapon will incur suspension or expulsion and notification of police.

Any object used as weapon will incur suspension or expulsion and notification of police.
