Absences for more than one (1) week without notification will be considered a withdrawal from enrollment and you will have to re-enroll your child to return.

Special Needs Plan
The purpose of the special needs plan is to provide services and referrals as needed for the child’s needs. It is important that the center and families communicate and stay closely connected. This helps to create a strong trusted bond that is only looking out for the best interest of the child. Children develop at their own rate, however some lack development in certain areas that can make it harder for them to continue developing successfully. The earlier that these unmet developmental milestones are realized and addressed the more successful the outcome will be. For this reason, we find it very important for families to share their concerns as we will do the same. We utilize the Ages and Stages Questionnaire (ASQ) annually to keep both the home and the program informed of the child’s developmental progress. We will share these results during parent – teacher conferences annually but also anything important that should arise in -between. We encourage parents to share with us at any time any concern that they may have so we can work together to best help support the child throughout the day. It is important that the children, families, and staff feel comfortable with the care they are receiving. If we feel that the family should seek out additional screening or support, we will gladly refer them to agencies such as Early on, Build Up the Intermediate School District (ISD), community partners, articles, or other specific agencies that may be able to meet the needs of the child. The staff at A Child’s World Learning Center continually attend trainings that help them stay and become more educated on children’s diverse needs and how accommodations can be made for their success.
The purpose of the health plan is to provide a healthy environment for all children and staff. It is very important for the prevention of childhood diseases, healthy brain development, and physical growth. Healthy children make it possible for parents and staff to work and not have to take time off which in return helps provide a steady routine and consistency of care. Upon enrollment the parents are given a health appraisal for their doctor to complete. Checking the Michigan Care Improvement Registry (MCIR) monthly allows me to alert parents to upcoming health needs. As the Director I will remind parents regularly that their file indicated that their year’s physical is approaching.
We keep records of all immunizations and waivers. If they do not currently have a doctor a packet of comprehensive resources such as health care centers, local pediatricians, health department and other local services can be shared. Our staff and I take ongoing professional development to stay on top of new information and work collaboratively with community services to provide the best information to families as we can.
