If your child has had a fever, diarrhea or vomiting, please keep them home for 24 hours after symptoms have subsided. If your child has an illness requiring antibiotics please allow your child 3 days of treatment before returning to class.
Do you "shut down?"
In the event of high RSV rates the Orchard MAY shut down for a few weeks as the property is home to an immunocompromised child. In the event that takes place we will hold classes at a near by venue.
How do you deal with "misbehavior?"
We believe "misbehavior" or "misguided" behaviors go deeper than the outward act. Our job is to get to the root of the behavior. Using behavior management techniques mainly prevention and redirection we work with each child and family to ensure every child has an equal opportunity to build strong social emotional skills and community bonds. Because we are an enrichment program meeting only once or twice a week that may not be enough consistency for social behaviors which need daily intervention. We will do our best in helping you with resources and/or finding the right community for your family.
