Who May Pick up Your Child

Only a child’s parent, guardian, or a person designated by the child’s parent or guardian will be allowed to pick up the child. Please be aware that if the staff does not know the person you have designated to pick up your child, that person will be asked for photo identification (Please ask your designated pick-up person to carry a photo I.D.).  No child will be released to anyone other than a parent or guardian without the signed permission of the parent/guardian. Families are asked to identify designated pick-up persons on the child’s registration forms.

Center staff will not release children to anyone under the age of 16.

Please speak with the director if there is a specific person whom you do not wish to be allowed to pick up your child, as there are legal issues involved.  At that time, we will discuss the protocol to be followed if the unauthorized person arrives to pick up your child.

All children who attend the Center need to be in a car safety seat by state law.  If a staff member notices that there is no child safety seat for the child being picked up, the staff member will request that the person picking up the child provide one before the child is released.

If a staff member has reason to suspect that a person who has arrived to pick up a child is under the influence of alcohol or drugs, the staff member will request that another authorized pick-up person be called to pick up the child.
