Please inform us if you require assistance translating forms, agreements, policies or procedures.
The following forms are required to complete your child’s file. As we are required to maintain this information on file by state law, and periodically have you review it, failure to provide this information, including timely updates, may result in termination of care.
Children’s records must contain the following information:
Child Health Report - this form must be signed by your child's doctor and returned to us within 60 days of enrollment. There are no exceptions - it is required by state law. The family is responsible for keeping the child’s immunizations and screenings up to date. Child Health Reports are required periodically during your child's enrollment, at regular intervals, as determined by state law.
