An open-door philosophy is an essential part of maintaining strong communication and a positive work environment. We are interested in knowing our parents’ ideas, questions, suggestions, problems or concerns.
However, there may be times when you wish to discuss a concern or problem with someone other than your child’s teacher. You are encouraged to bring these matters to another member of administration/management. Where feasible, you should still advise your child’s teacher that you wish to meet with another member of the school’s administration.
HOW TO REPORT DISCRIMINATION OR UNLAWFUL HARASSMENT
If you believe you have been subjected to discrimination or unlawful harassment, or have witnessed it, you should report these acts immediately, verbally or in writing to the Executive Director. Your complaint should include the following: incident or incidents, name of the individual involved, and names of any witness.
Here at Tiny Tigers, we want for our children to remain safe and clean to the best extent possible. Therefore, we ask parents to bring at least two pairs of changing clothes and six diapers; we check/change our children every hour while they are in our care. Parents are to supply diapers, wipes, and ointments they use for their children. If none of these supplies are provided, the center will call parent to bring some and/or use our supplies and charge the parents account up to one dollar per diaper. If wipes are not supplied, we can only use clean water and a rag.
