A: As an EIDT (Early Intervention Day Treatment) program, a child enrolled must qualify on a Developmental Evaluation in order to remain enrolled in an EIDT program. This is in addition to qualifying in two therapy areas (PT, OT, ST) as required by Pediatrics Plus. The preschool will try and notify you with as much anticipation as possible if your child no longer qualifies and a timeframe for transition will be discussed. Outpatient therapies will remain an option.
A: Please provide a copy of documentation or reports to the front desk of your preschool. They will send the information to the appropriate entity and/or add it to the patient file.
A: We communicate with our families using the following methods:
- Daily sheets from the classroom
- Pop-up messages on the computer during sign in/sign out
- Informal communication at drop off/pick up
- Memos and flyers
- Remind app text messages (Parents may sign up for this service. Instructions are available in the classroom and at the front desk.)
- We will also call if there is anything specific with your child, and you are free to call at any time to get clarification or information.
A: To ensure quality care and honor our childcare licensing guidelines, our teachers and admin will call families from our work extensions if the situation requires a phone call. Families are also welcomed to call the school and speak with an admin member, or email an admin member, and we will be sure to give that message to the teaching staff. Based on regulations, cell phone use is strictly prohibited during care of children.
A: Feel free to contact the front desk and we will get you in touch with the admin member that will best meet your needs.
