Family Information Form

As your child begins the program year or enrolls midyear, you must submit a Family Information Form, which facilitates the transition to the program and is a valuable reference for your child’s teachers as they design learning environments. The Family Information Form can be accessed as an online survey at this link:

Emergency Contact Form

For the safety of your child, all records of personal family information held by the Center must be kept up to date. It is the responsibility of parents to notify the office of any change of employment, address, telephone numbers, hours of work, care and/or custody arrangements, and other pertinent information regarding the family—especially contact information, which may be needed by the Center in the event of an emergency. If important information has changed, or to authorize new or different individuals to pick up your child from the Center, please complete an updated Emergency Contact Form and return it to the Center. The form can be downloaded here:
