Confidentiality

All aspects of the children’s growth, development, and family life are treated in a confidential manner at the Center.  A primary professional concern of all the staff is to protect the rights of all children.  Parents are requested to speak only with the lead teachers or the director when discussing confidential information.  Please do not pass on any important information with students who are working in the classrooms.

The only people permitted access to your child’s records and registration information are you (the parent or legal guardian) and appropriate Center employees.  We will not give out information to others without written consent of the parent or legal guardian.  We also will not verify your child’s enrollment to others without your consent.  As part of our confidentiality policy, the name of a child who may have caused an accident or injury to another child will not be disclosed to others by the staff and will not be identified on the accident report.

In the interests of confidentiality, we do not give out addresses and phone numbers of children to parents of other children in the program.  If you would like to communicate with another child’s family, feel free to leave a note in their mailbox at the Center.

We also do not distribute phone number of students who work at the Center.  If you are interested in contacting a particular student for babysitting purposes, feel free to leave a note for that individual in the office.

Students who work at the Center are not permitted to discuss children outside of the Center or with families.  Please do not put students in an awkward position by requesting information about your child, other children, or Center staff.  Students who are found to engage in such discussions will lose their position at the Center.  If you have any questions about your child, please discuss them with your child’s teachers only.
