1. Does my child have to be toilet-trained?
No, but s/he should have started the process. When potty training, children frequently end up emulating peers who are already potty-trained.

2. What do I need to bring?
Diapers or pull-ups if a child is not fully potty-trained, a change of clothes appropriate for the season to be kept here and promptly replaced if worn and soiled. (I respectfully request parents refrain from dressing or accessorizing their children with items featuring commercial designs such as Cinderella, Barbie, Spiderman, the Hulk, etc.) A set of outdoor washable footwear, such as crocs (for warm weather) or rubber boots (for colder weather) that can stay here. Lunch on most days except as specified below.

3. Do you provide food and can you accommodate special diets?
I provide snacks. Parents need to pack a lunch for their child except for the day once a week when the children prepare and eat lunch here, as part of a cooking activity. That day is rotated over the month (Monday, the first week of the month, Tuesday, the second week, etc.). Parents will be provided the lunch schedule for each month. If your child has allergies to milk or other foods, I can offer substitutes approved by you or your doctor. Kosher and Islamic dietary restrictions will be honored, but I do not purchase Kosher or Halal meat so I will have to offer substitutions for meat. While I mostly serve vegetarian fare, strict vegans might need to provide some food items should a lunch served here doesn't meet their criteria.

4. Are children allowed to bring toys?
Children may bring a toy if handmade by a parent or friend, a blankie or comfort item such as a favorite teddy or bunny.

5. Do you accept children with disabilities or other issues?
I can accommodate children with mild, but not severe, developmental delays or disabilities. I can accommodate deaf children who can sign only.

6. Do you accept children who do not speak English?
Yes, but at least one parent must speak English.

7. Are you a state-licensed facility?
Yes, and I comply with NC state regulations.

8. What is the inclement weather policy?
We remain open during inclement weather, unless disruption of basic utilities such as water, or electricity would make it impossible to adequately care for the children, or if property damage created an environment hazardous to the children.
