SPECIAL NEEDS
Please make Kidz Depot staff members aware of any special needs your child might have. Kidz Depot does not discriminate against any person based upon personal ability, however your child should be able to play independently within our staff ratio.

HEALTHY CHILDREN
It is our policy at Kidz Depot not to accept sick children. Your cooperation in this matter is greatly appreciated. Please do not bring your child to Kidz Depot if they have had a fever or vomited in the past 24 hours. Please keep your child home if he/she suffers from a sore throat, rash, cough, diarrhea, or pink eye. If a child becomes ill during the course of their stay, the child will be separated from the other children (he/she will remain within eyesight and hearing of our staff) and the parent will be contacted immediately. Parents will be expected to pick-up their sick child in a timely manner. Kidz Depot staff members have First Aid training and will attend to minor cuts and bruises if applicable. In the event of an emergency, your child will be transported to the closest medical facility for treatment at the parent’s expense, as noted on the  registration/release form.

MEDICATIONS
We cannot administer medications (including over the counter) to your child.  Please let the caregiver know when your child is on medication so we may keep accurate information on file.

INCIDENT REPORTS
We take every precaution to ensure the safety of all children in our care; however, when children play accidents may happen.  In case of an accident or injury Kidz Depot is equipped with a first aid kit and our staff has CPR and First-Aid training.  For all minor accidents you will receive an “incident report” showing what occurred and what action was taken.  In case of an emergency, we will call 911 first for medical assistance.  You will be contacted immediately after.

GOOD BEHAVIOR
At Kidz Depot, we know that children respond favorably to positive reinforcement. We will encourage children to make good choices but we also know that there will be times when verbal guidance and re-direction will be necessary. There may be times when a child would be asked to take a short time-out from their activities. Kidz Depot reserves the right to refuse care to children who have been exceptionally aggressive until such time when there has been a significant change in their behavior.
