Drop Off/Pick Up
Children will only be released to those designated on the Authorized to Pick-Up Form and in some cases a Picture ID may still be required. On occasion a phone call can be accepted from the Parent/Guardian with proper credentials.
We love having our parents being involved at preschool. It may be a hardship for the daycare teachers, childcare assistants, or room helpers to visit with a parent/guardian while trying to give quality care to the other children. Twin Oaks Daycare asks for your cooperation in limiting the length of your stay as you drop of and pick up your children. However, please feel free to inquire about your child’s day or ask any questions you may have pertaining to your child’s care.
