Discipline policy
At all ages we will advise the children of what behavior is unacceptable and why we feel that way. Time out is the primary form of discipline. The child will be set apart from the situation, while being supervised in the same room. After sitting in a quiet area, the child will be allowed to rejoin the group for play and activities.
Children will not be subject to discipline that is severe, humiliating or frightening. We will not allow discipline to be associated with food or toileting.
FLORIDA LAW PROHIBITS SPANKING OR ANY OTHER FORM OF CORPORAL PUNISHMENT!
Immunization and illness

Within 30 days of enrollment, each child must have a written statement from a licensed physician on file stating that:

1. The child is in good health, or that any known irregular condition is under treatment.
2. All immunizations appropriate for the child’s age are current or in the process of being brought up      to date.

New physicals are required every two years. Immunizations should be reported to the office as they occur on a form from the physician’s office. Special concerns (i.e. allergies) MUST be brought to the attention of the director and teacher.

THE DEPARTMENT OF CHILDREN AND FAMILIES CHECK THESE RECORDS.

All children with any sign of illness must leave the center immediately. Parents will be contacted immediately. Please arrive promptly to pick up your child. It is not the responsibility of our staff to prove illness. We are bound by Florida Health Regulations to remove children from the center who are ill or suspected to be ill.
ANY FEVER, VOMITTING, OR DIARRHEA IS CONSIDERED TO BE AN ILLNESS. CHILDREN SHOULD NOT RETURN TO THE GOLDEN BOOK PRESCHOOL UNTIL ALL SYMPTOMS HAVE BEEN ABSENT FOR 24 HOURS.
We must protect ourselves and the other children from illness by strictly following this policy. The only allowable exceptions are if your child has been seen by a physician who has determined that the illness is not contagious or if the child has been on antibiotics for 12 hours. A note from the doctor is required in either case.
Medicine
If your child requires medication to be given during school hours, you must sign the provided daily medication sheet. (This is located next to the sign in and out sheet on the front counter.) We will need the following information on the medication sheet:
Child's name
Name of medication
Amount to be administered
Time medication is to be given
Parent’s Signature or Initials
PLEASE REMEMBER IF NO TIME IS WRITTEN WE CANNOT ADMINISTER MEDICINE TO YOUR CHILD. WE CANNOT ADMINISTER MEDICINE ON AN “AS NEEDED” BASIS.
