Severe Weather, Fire or Emergency Situations
If an emergency situation develops such as severe weather, fire, physical damage to the building, or any other situation that poses a threat, the safety of the children is our first concern.

Our school is equipped with a weather band radio, a fire alarm sprinkler system and fire extinguishers. Fire and severe weather drills are conducted according to state and county regulations or every 30 days.

If there is an emergency situation and it becomes necessary to close Kids ´R´ Kids Mableton, parents will be notified to make arrangements for early pickup.

If there is inclement weather and it is determined that the School will not open, parents will be instructed by Kids ´R´ Kids Mableton regarding TV or radio stations providing closing information.

If an emergency situation develops and it is determined that the building or premises are unsafe, your child(ren) will be transported to a safe location.

Parents will be notified of the situation, and you will be required to pick up your child(ren) as soon as possible.

Alcohol, Drugs, and Tobacco
In our effort to provide a safe, healthy environment for each child to grow and develop, we maintain a School free of alcohol, drugs, and tobacco use.

The use or presence of alcohol, drugs, and tobacco is prohibited in the building or anywhere on the grounds by Kids ´R´ Kids Mableton staff, parents, or anyone visiting Kids ´R´ Kids Mableton.

The use or presence of alcohol, drugs, and tobacco is prohibited during any outing or field trip as well as on any vehicle used by Kids ´R´ Kids Mableton to transport your child(ren).

Discipline
At Kids ´R´ Kids Mableton, we use the principles of Love and Logic to guide your child(ren) toward appropriate behavior. 

Love and Logic is a philosophy of raising and teaching children which allows adults to be happier, empowered, and more skilled in the interactions with children. Love and Logic will allow teachers to set limits with enforceable statements and neutralize student arguing while developing positive teacher/student relationships. 

Love allows children to grow through their mistakes. Logic allows children to live with the consequences of their choices. Love and Logic is a way of working with children that puts parents and teachers back in control, teaches children to be responsible, and prepares young people to live in the real world, with its many choices and consequences.

 (The use of physical punishment or harsh language is prohibited.)

Parents or guardians are required to abide by the Kids ´R´ Kids Mableton Discipline Policy any time they are on Kids ´R´ Kids Mableton property.

Dismissal Policy
The staff will work with each child to fulfill the needs of that child, and every effort will be made to provide a positive learning experience. Special needs will be accommodated when possible.

Kids ´R´ Kids Mableton reserves the right to ask parents to make alternative arrangements for care if it is determined that a child´s needs cannot be met or the child has not adjusted to group care provided by Kids ´R´ Kids Mableton. In the event behavior becomes disruptive to the program or becomes a problem that poses an unsafe situation for the child or other children in the class, alternative arrangements will be required.

If you, as a parent, are uncooperative in completing and returning forms, fail to pay your tuition on time, fail to follow any state or county regulations, or fail to follow any Kids ´R´ Kids Mableton Policy or Procedure, it may be necessary to dismiss your child(ren) from Kids ´R´ Kids Mableton.

The Parent`s Role
The relationship between parents and Kids ´R´ Kids Mableton staff is vital to the success of a child´s experience. A partnership must be formed the first day, with open communication and understanding that the development and growth of the child is our top priority.

Parents can assist and help ensure a smooth transition by doing the following:

Sign children in and out at the front desk and then escort them to their designated class. Have all forms completed promptly. Update forms as needed when changes occur (i.e. new phone number, address, etc.). Keep staff informed of special needs or changes that might affect your child´s behavior. Notify Kids ´R´ Kids Mableton if your child is ill. Do not bring an ill child to Kids ´R´ Kids Mableton. Notify Kids ´R´ Kids Mableton if your child will be absent. Notify Kids ´R´ Kids Mableton if you will be later than usual picking up your child. Provide a change of clothes marked with your child´s name.

Participate in the Kids ´R´ Kids Mableton´s special activities. Attend scheduled parent meetings and conferences. Ask questions and address concerns as they arise.
