ENROLLMENT POLICY

OCC is a licensed Group Child Care Center.  Each center has their license and any violations with corrective action posted by the parent sign in area.  The license shows the capacity, ages of children served, hours of operation, days of operation and months of operation.  A book containing the state regulations is available for your review at each center.  Please contact the Director or Administrator with any questions you may have.

We are required by state regulations to maintain accurate records on all children enrolled at the center.  Health and Immunization Records, The Child Enrollment Form, Health History and Infant/Toddler Intake form need to be completed and turned in by the first day of a child’s start date.  You are given these forms upon enrollment.  It is vital that these forms are updated as needed.  Therefore, if you are informed by your Director that a Health or Immunization report needs to be updated or is missing … PLEASE set up an appointment immediately with your child’s doctor and inform us of the date and time.  Then, be sure that the required form is returned to us as soon as possible.  If the proper forms are not turned in, your child will be dis-enrolled until the file is up to date.

The OCC Director will review and share any information listed on the Health History and Emergency Care Plan form with everyone assigned to care for the child.  There are also no limitations with regard to toilet training or walking for enrollment at the center.  Further, any food allergies or special health needs will be posted in that child’s room on the parent information board.

OCC strives to place children into the program, which most closely meets the needs of the family and the centers’ availability.

Enrollments are divided into the following programs:

Full Time Care: AM & PM care, 5 days a week

Part Time Care: Full 2-4 days a week or Half 2-5 days a week

(Half Day = 6:30AM – 12:30PM or 12:30PM – 6:00PM)

Lunch is served at 12:00PM

School Age Care: Before/After elementary school hours, 2-5 days a week

The centers’ policy is to maintain a two half-day minimum for all children enrolled with either regular or varied schedules.  The center will not discriminate in admission on the basis of race, color, sex, creed, handicap, political persuasion, national origin or ancestry.

OCC complies with the letter and the spirit of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, not only in its hiring and employment practices, but also in all other provisions of the Act, including public access.  The ADA prohibits employment discrimination against “qualified individuals with disabilities”.  OCC openly accepts any child/employee with a handicap or special need to the program to the best of our ability.
