No child will be released to anyone but the parent unless we have written notice. Anyone given permission to pick up your child must show identification and be listed on the enrollment form under Emergency Contact/Pickup. Kids Ink employees are not permitted to transport children unless they are immediately related to the child and are on the Emergency Contact/Pickup list. If a parent(s) or person(s) authorized by the parent(s) appears to be physically and/or emotionally impaired to the extent that, in the judgement of the director and/or staff member, the child would be placed at risk, the center shall not release to the impaired individual.
Staff members will attempt to contact an alternative person authorized by the parent. If the center is unable to make alternative arrangements, the center shall call the 24-hour State Hotline at 1-877-NJ-ABUSE to seek further assistance for the child.
We provide a structured learning environment! Each classroom is designed to function with a monthly calendar which is sent home to inform parents of our monthly activities. All staff have extensive training in child development, Creative Curriculum, ECERS and ITERS, Health and safety, child development, CPR, First Aid, AED and many more. Our large classrooms allow for circle time, structured and unstructured play, daily language arts, math and science activities. All pre-school age children must arrive prior to “Circle Time” which will set the activities for the day. The start of the day is at 9:00 a.m.
