Intake Interview:

Before your child enrolls, at least one parent/guardian must come to the Child Development Center for an Intake Interview with the Director and Lead Teacher. During this interview you will

  • Review the necessary records, authorizations, forms, policies and procedures of the Center
  • Discuss the needs and/or special concerns of your child
  • Learn about the schedule of the day, separation issues, and methods for communicating
  • Know what to bring on the first day of class
  • Discover the benefits of the Gradual Start approach to childcare


Gradual Start:

Once your child is enrolled, you will introduce him or her slowly to the new environment and routines of the Center. You will visit the Center with your child for one or two short days prior to the child’s beginning full time. This way your child’s anxiety about new surroundings, routines, and people will be minimized.
