- You may either print off the registration forms listed
below or pick up a registration packet at the center. All
forms are required for each child except the medication form
(see item 5 below).
- All children that have not entered elementary school must
have a physical and immunizations. We must have these
done yearly, preferably around the child’s birth date. As
children turn ages 1, 2, and 3 they must have a lead test.
The forms for physicals and immunizations are not on the
website as Doctors print their own forms off the computers.

- Caregivers need to fill
out a form giving us permission to apply the
following items to your child: Sunscreen,
hand lotion, Chap Stick, diaper cream
(nonprescription). You must provide
the items and clearly label them with your
child’s name on it. It works best if
you can write the name with a sharpie and
then put tape over the name. These
items cannot be in a child’s back pack.
A teacher will put the items in a closet out
of the reach of the children. The care
giver may sign the form.
- A medication form needs
to be filled out when a child needs to be
given an antibiotic or prescription
medication. The medication must come
in with the prescription attached. It
must be clearly labeled with your child’s
name on it, the dosage, and the time to give
it. The caregiver may sign the form.
- A medication form must be
filled out and signed by the doctor when a
nonprescription medication needs to be given
to a child such as Tylenol, cough syrup, or
eye drops. We do not provide these
items and can only be given to a child when
a care giver provides them with a written
consent from the doctor.
- Any child with a chronic health condition
must have an individual health care plan from
their doctor. This plan must describe the
condition, symptoms, the treatment, side
effects, and consequences of missed treatment.
A medication form must also be filled out by
the caregiver. Any medication must be given to
the teacher so that it can be locked up and out
of reach of the children.
- Please make sure the staff is aware of any allergies to
food, latex, bees, or anything else. We are a peanut/tree
nut free environment. Your child’s health and safety is
very important to us.
- Once the forms are filled out and given to
the Director your child may start at the
center. Your child or the caregiver may need
some transition time. We always accommodate a
few visits to help everyone adjust to the
center. Set these visits up with the Director.
We want your time here to be a wonderful
experience for you and your child.
