Frequently asked questions

Do you offer a curriculum for the children?

What is your child to caregiver ratio?
Ratio's are determined by the age of the children. At Little Hands at Home Daycare we meet or exceed the state determined levels for each age group.
How do you keep parents up to date on their kid’s daily activities or behavior? Do you offer a daily report?
Little Hands at Home Daycare uses the Brightwheel app. This app provides real-time updates directly to your phone. You can communicate directly with your childs care-giver, see photos from the day and even pay your tuition.
What happens if my child needs to miss a day due to vacation or illness?
Children earn 5 vacation days after 6 months of enrollment of at least 3 days a week or more. These days can be used if your child is out for vacation or illness. If no vacation days are available, full tuition is due if child misses for any reason.
Can parents drop by whenever they’d like or swing by to breastfeed? What are your visitation policies in general?
Parents are encouraged to drop in any time to visit their child/children. However, visitation during quiet time/nap time is discouraged because it is disruptive.
How often do you sanitize the toys and materials used by the children?
We take the health and safety of all the children in our care seriously. All toys and surfaces are santized daily to help deter the spread of germs. This includes toys, chairs, tables, mats.
What if I'm late picking up my child?
Our daycare hours are 6:00 am to 6:00 pm. An emergency or occasionally working overtime is something we certainly understand. Notify us as soon as possible if you will be arriving late. Late fees are explained in our Parents Policy Handbook.
What days and times are you open?
We are open Monday through Friday, from 6:00am-6:00 pm.
Can I take a tour of the child care center during hours of operation?
We recommend calling to book an appointment so the Director can plan time to spend with you and your family and have no other appointments booked. However, we have an open door policy, so you may also choose to stop by any time.
Will my child have the opportunity to play outside every day?
We believe children should have the opportunity to play outside every day. Outside play provides children with many different learning experiences. Make sure your child comes dressed accordingly.
Who can I expect to see interacting with my child?
All Little Hands Daycare teachers have a high school diploma, up to a Bachelor’s degree. Staff must be 18 years or older, pass a background check and criminal record check, and have experience working with children as well as being First Aid/CPR certified.
