Q. Where do I drop off my child for preschool?
A. Preschool begins at 8:45am and 1:00pm on the playground. If you get here 5-10 minutes early, you may go and play on the playground until the teachers come out. The preschool teachers are on break from 12:00pm-1:00pm and are not available until class begins. If you need to speak with them before class begins, you may email or send them a message on their Remind 101 app.
Q. Do the children go outside if it has rained?
A. It is required by licensing that all children go outside twice a day. We will NOT go out if it is 20 degrees or below zero (with windchill). We will NOT go outside if it is raining DURING outside time.
Q. How do I tell my child's teacher if my child is not coming in?
A. Please call, email, or send a message via Brightwheel if your child will not be attending CCDC. If they are ill (fever, sore throat, cough, pink eye, lice, etc.) you must let us know. If you are not bringing your child in because Grandma is visiting (for example), please let us know. This is also for licensing purposes. It also helps with scheduling purposes if your child will NOT be attending that day.
Q. Where do I sign my child IN/OUT?
A. We recently started using Brightwheel, a tool for classroom management, communication, photos, videos, hands free check in and out, and much more. Brightwheel is the industry leader in early education, proven to save time for staff, allowing for measurably more time with students, while also delivering a much better experience for parents. With new COVID 19 guidelines and heath check requirements Brightwheel will allow us to log their temperature and parents may leave messages about their child's health. Parents will be required to clock their child in and out with just a click of a button on your personal cell phone. WE WILL NO LONGER BE USING THE REMIND 101 APP. All parent and staff communication will be through Brightwheel. Please be patient with us as we learn this together.
Q. I have questions about the Brightwheel app. Where can I find info about that?
A. You can find "how to" parent guide videos by clicking here. Please be patient with us as we learn this together.
Q. Where are the classroom Wish Lists?
A. You can find the classrooms and office Wish Lists on each webpage under the Parent Portal tab.
Q. Do I still get MY Kroger points if I add CCDC to my Kroger Plus account?
A. YES. This will not effect your gas points in any way. This will just help us earn money for special supplies. General questions about the program can be found here: https://www.kroger.com/asset/michigan_faqs
Q. If my child is in the Daycare/School Age or Toddler room, how do I get my new credit coupons?
A. ALL 2019/2020 credit coupons are available in the office. All parents must sign for them. Credit coupons are only for families who have children in our daycare/toddler/school age.
