Check-in process

Your child’s safety is important to us.

  • Use the nursery sign-in clipboard upon arrival.
  • Fill out the Childcare Registration Form if it is your first visit.
  • Present your child at the classroom door for the nursery worker to receive your child.
  • Please refrain from entering the nursery room when possible. It can upset children to see parents coming and going.

Silent pagers are available in the infant and young toddler rooms. Please ask nursery personnel for instructions.

Children are released to only those individuals listed on the check-in sheet. Please respect our nursery workers by picking up children promptly.
