Handling Separation: From the Director

Children with separation difficulty are handled by the director and extra staff on hand to allow the teachers to continue with their classroom routines. Children crying for more than 20 minutes will have their parents contacted to deptermine how to proceed. Parents may select if they would like to pick up their child, or allow the staff to continue trying to comfort and engage the child in fun activities. This process will continue every 20 minutes.
