Late Collection of Children
Please note that it is important for the children and staff that children are collected promptly. Whilst we appreciate that delays are sometimes unavoidable, we do reserve the right to charge R50 every 15 minute late to cover our costs, as staff may have to be paid overtime.
The Pre-School is open throughout out the year, except for the holidays and two weeks over Christmas.
We require one month written notice should you wish to terminate a pre-school place for any reason. Parents remain liable for fees throughout the notice period. We reserve the right to terminate a Pre-School place with immediate effect if fees are not paid by the due date or if a parent or child displays abusive, threatening or otherwise inappropriate behavior. In all other cases, One month notice will be issued in writing should we wish to terminate a Pre-School place for any reason. Nonetheless, no termination of the child shall be accepted towards festive seasons from the 1st of October.
Liability & Insurance
The school cannot be held responsible for any loss or damage to children’s property. Every reasonable effort will be made to ensure children’s belongings are not lost or damaged.
We accept no responsibility for children whilst in their parents care or Pre-School premises. On certain occasion there may be circumstances beyond our control (for instance weather conditions, flooding, medical emergencies) that means the decision has to be taken to close the Pre-school. If the Pre-school is obliged on these occasions to pay the staff, then the Pre-school reserves the right to charge for any session which your child would have attended if the Pre-school had not been closed due to circumstances beyond its control.
Accidents and Illness
We reserve the right to administer basic first aid and treatment where necessary. Parents will be informed of all accidents and required to sign an accident form. For accidents of a more serious nature, involving hospital treatment, every effort will be made by the Pre-School to contact parents but failing this we are hereby authorised to act on behalf of parents and authorise necessary treatment. We will only administer prescribed medicines if parents complete a ‘medicine consent form’; however, the first dose must be given at home and medicines must not be left on the Pre-School premises overnight.
We require parents to withdraw their child from Pre-school in the event they require special medical care or attention, the child is considered too unwell to attend or it is thought the child has an infectious or contagious disease. We accept no responsibility for children contracting contagious diseases/infections but efforts will be made to inform parents of cases of such diseases or infections within the Pre-School. We reserve the right to contact parents at any time if their child becomes ill during normal pre-school hours. Should your child pose a potential health risk to other children or staff then we have no option but to exclude the child until a doctor declares no further risk. Parents are required to inform Pre-School if their child is suffering from any illness, sickness or allergies.
Under no circumstance will a child be allowed to leave Pre-School with anyone unknown to Pre-School staff unless the Parent has made previous arrangements. A list of responsible adults who are authorised to collect their child should be given to the Pre-School manager.
Parents are required to inform Pre-School of any food, medicine, activity or other circumstance that may cause the child to have an allergic reaction or allergy. Parents must provide full details, in writing, of the severity of the reaction and must keep the Pre-School informed of any change to the condition.
