At Treasure Tree Academy, we believe fieldtrips can heighten children’s interest in related topics and give children the opportunity to visit places and people in the community which inspire and benefit our world around us. Our fieldtrips are held during regular class time and are walking fieldtrips. Parents are more than welcome to join us. Please make us aware if you are interested in attending. Parents will be informed of upcoming fieldtrips through the monthly calendar.
I give permission for my child to attend field trips with Treasure Tree Academy, be they walking or driving field trips.
In case of an emergency, we will attempt to call the parents. If we cannot get in contact with a parent, we will call the emergency contact provided. In case we cannot get in contact with either of these individuals, we will take the necessary steps for hospitalizing the child in order for the child to receive the medical attention he/she may need. In the case of a life-threatening emergency, we will call emergency services first, immediately followed by a call to parents and/or emergency contact.
In the case of injury incurred on the premises or during a field trip, I hereby release Treasure Tree Academy and its personnel from any and all legal liability.
At Treasure Tree Academy, we have a zero-tolerance policy for child abuse in any form (verbal, emotional, physical, sexual, psychological, etc.). We wish to make it ardently clear that anyone who works in the preschool with your children has passed a background check and rigorous screening including numerous reference checks, professional and personal, as well as psychological and personality type testing before being allowed to ever work with or around your children. We consider child abuse to be the most heinous of crimes and are committed to your children’s utmost safety, security, and well-being while in the preschool as well as in their lives at home. It should be well noted that our staff are trained annually in recognizing the signs of child abuse and neglect and are required by law, as well as by Treasure Tree Academy policy, to report any and all suspicions of child abuse either by other staff members or by parents. We can and will report child abuse and neglect and will not tolerate it in our preschool. Should you ever have a concern about any student regarding abuse or neglect, please contact the preschool director Stephanie Cooper immediately on her personal cell phone: 801-309-0908, come into the preschool to speak with her in person, or contact Child Protective Services. Thank you for helping us protect our students!
Our discipline philosophy is reward the positive, redirect the negative. While abuse is certainly not tolerated in any form at Treasure Tree Academy, appropriate disciplinary action can be taken in regard to a student or students exhibiting inappropriate, dangerous, or disruptive behaviors during class instruction. WE NEVER USE CORPORAL PUNISHMENT! (That is: spanking, slapping,
hitting, or any other form of discipline that involves physical contact with the child’s body.) Our student disciplinary system consists of simple, calm, verbal warnings called strikes. The children are all taught and reminded regularly that if a child is verbally given 3 verbal warnings (strikes) and asked to correct or improve their behavior in any given situation, then they will spend no more than 10 minutes in time out. Time out consists of simply having to sit in a chair apart from the
classroom activities, think about their actions, and decide when they are ready to rejoin the class. Should our “3 strikes then time-out” system repeatedly fail to correct any given student’s behavioral issues, then the student’s parents will be contacted and a meeting will be arranged to discuss further options and incentives for helping the student improve their behavior.
Drop-off and Pick-up
In order to help ensure the safety of your child, we require that your child is accompanied into the preschool when they are being dropped-off and picked-up. You must sign-in when you are dropping off and picking up your student. If more than one person is authorized to pick-up your child, please indicate below those you will allow your child to go home with. Photo ID is required if an individual other than the parent is picking-up your child.
