Frequently Asked Questions
All the nonsensical questions you'd like to get out the way...
What method of payment do you accept?
We accept: cash, check and money orders
What do I need to bring for the first day?
Infants: Diapers, wipes, blanket, 2-3 changes of clothes, a labeled bottle with infants name that can be kept at the center, formula, baby food (if you are not using the centers formula and baby food)
Toddlers: Diapers/pull ups, wipes, blanket, a change of clothes
Pre-K: Book bag, blanket and a change of clothes
What do I do when I first arrive?
Parents will sign their child in on the sign in/out sheet by writing the time they drop their child off in the allotted slot for the appropriate day of the week. Parents will also sign their child out when they arrive to pick up their child at the end of the day.
What is the latest I can drop my child off?
The 9:00 policy can be found in the Parent Policy Handbook, which states: "All children are to be in the center by 9:00 a.m. to begin the daily schedule. Failure to comply with this policy will result in a late fee of $1.00 per minute after 9:00 a.m."
This policy was set in place to create a school-like setting in our center. The center’s daily activities begin at 9:00.
Children who arrive late not only miss out on planned activities but also disrupt the classrooms as we have to stop our activities and answer the door and adjust to the late arrival.
We are aware that special circumstances may occur (doctor appointments, traffic, etc), which may cause parents/children to arrive after 9:00. These circumstances can be discussed with the director prior to arriving at the center after 9:00 a.m.
Where can I park to drop off/pick up my child?
Parents may park directly in front of the building as long as there is space available. Please do not block the street. The parking lot across the street is not Kidsville’s property. The owner of the lot has given me permission to allow my parents to park their cars in his lot during drop off and pick up times only.
If you park your car in the lot during drop off and/or pick up times please use the “diagonal parking” method by the trees or the brick wall. Please leave the center lane open so cars can come in and out easily.
What is your late pick up fee?
Late pick fees are assessed when a child is picked up after his/her scheduled hours and pick-ups after 6:00 pm.
The late pick up fee is $1.00 per minute (per child) that a parent is late.
What should types of clothes should my child wear for daycare activities?
Clothing for Play
Our children learn through their play. Hands‐on play is essential to their education. For this reason, we ask that you send your children to school in clothing suitable for play. Sneakers, jeans, and casual shirts are ideal; anything that will not be ruined by crayons, markers, glue, paint, or dirt. All shoes should be appropriate for your child to play comfortably.
If you bring your child to the center in clothing you do not want not get dirty or that may not be suitable for play, we encourage you to bring in clothes/shoes that can be kept in your child’s locker/cubby as "play clothes."
Earrings, rings, necklaces, and bracelets accent your child’s wardrobe, but they present a health risk to your child as well as other children in the center. Also, when jewelry is lost during play it may cause your family distress. We encourage you not to send your child to the center wearing jewelry. This applies to ages 6 weeks to 4 years old.
We are not responsible for any loss or breakage of personal items.
Is my child permitted to bring a special toy from home?
We encourage children not to bring toys from home. Children have a difficult time sharing with others, and it is even harder with their own special toys. If toys are brought, please note that they may be put away.
Exceptions to this policy:
- Toys may be brought for show and tell activities.
- Before/After School children are permitted to bring electronic devices (these children are responsible for maintaining their belongings.)
We are not responsible for any loss or breakage of personal items.
We are located in the east end of Pittsburgh, directly across from the Children’s Home off of Penn Ave.
