Information for Parents about Lancaster CA Child Care

Operational Guidelines for Preschools, Daycare and Child Care in Lancaster CA

Generally, before starting in a Lancaster 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 Lancaster CA, 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 Lancaster 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 Lancaster CA. 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 Lancaster CA, 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 Lancaster daycare centers will offer opportunities for your child to visit before your child starts. Tell your child the teacher's name and remind her/him that you will be coming to pick them up at the end of the day. Separation is natural and affects different children in different ways. For providers of childcare in Lancaster CA, on your child's first two days of daycare, plan to have your child leave earlier than their normal schedule. Several hours can be a very long time to a child in a new situation. Most Lancaster child care centers will allow you to make arrangements so that you can spend time in the classroom with them. When it is time to leave, please give your child a clear goodbye. The teachers will take over and engage your child and start developing a relationship and comforting them. Also many daycares in Lancaster CA will encourage you to check on your child's progress, so feel free to do so!
