IMPORTANT POLICIES:

ACCIDENTS
All accidents must be reported immediately to the Director. Accident(s) reports must be written, signed by me, given to parents, and copied for the child’s file. Any and ALL head/facial injuries must be reported to the Director, AND parent MUST BE CALLED FOR DISMISSAL FOR CARE. Close supervision of children is the best anecdote to accidents. Use risk management to keep the environment safe and hazard free.  Bambini Academy strives to provide the best in equipment, that is kept maintained, and in overall good working conditions, so all children will be safe in the classroom or playground areas.  Safety is a joint effort of all staff and employees requiring all of us to become risk managers.

Classroom Boards
–                 A class theme board should be changed monthly displaying an artistic layout of the season, holiday, class project, or a display of classroom unity. (we are a smart bunch- with a big bag of apples with children's names in each apple for example)
–                 Your sign in and sign out sheet parent board should be updated when needed. Please use this board to summarize things that were worth sharing from the day and any major notices.
–                 Also, please make sure to complete daily reports each day to ensure that parents know the overall day their child had.  This will be set as a connection piece to allow parents to ask their children how their day was and to know what fun activities they have been engaged in.

Fire Drills- When the alarm sounds, exit accordingly:
INFANT/YEARLING- out through infant doors, through play yard gate

Nightly Cleaning Sheets must be completed and should be displayed in your classroom with a dry erase marker for you to check off.  If trash is left, sign ins not flipped, areas are messy, toys just thrown on shelves, or tables are not clean, a warning will be given and a written write up will be given after second offense. I will start a walk through before the usual cleaning at night that my mother and I perform. Classroom checklists must be completed each night. If classrooms are not “ready for the next day” a verbal notice will be given.  Written will follow if not corrected.
