Information for Parents about Hyattsville MD Child Care

Operational Guidelines for Preschools, Daycare and Child Care in Hyattsville MD

Generally, before starting in a Hyattsville child care program, parents must complete all paperwork and submit it prior or on the child's first day. Sometimes a Physicians Report may take longer to obtain, and a grace period (e.g. 30 days) may be provided if extra time is needed to arrange a doctor's appointment. The doctor's report will typically identify completed vaccinations, allergies and any conditions that will require special handling. For daycare and child care in Hyattsville MD, if these forms are not completed it may result in your child's enrollment being suspended. It is important that parents keep their information up to date at the local Hyattsville child care office. If you move, change jobs, or phone numbers, or if your emergency contacts should change phone numbers, please let the preschool office know. Parents should review their authorized pick up lists to ensure that it is current in the event that you send someone to pick up your child from preschools or child care in Hyattsville MD. Even if you send someone to pick up your child, you will have to call the daycare center even if that person is on your child's emergency pick up list.To get your child off to a great start at a daycare in Hyattsville MD, talk to your child about daycare and all the great things to look forward to. Tell him or her about the wonderful things they are going to explore. Children often enjoy being able to go to the store for a lunchbox and school bag before school begins. Many Hyattsville daycare centers will offer opportunities for your child to visit before your child starts.
