On behalf of myself, my spouse, and each child designated (my “Child”), by signing this agreement, I consent to the following terms and conditions: I enter into this Admission Agreement(“Agreement”) with regarding the provision by Kid Time Day Care Inc. of a supervised, indoor play environment for my Child(ren).
1. Facility Use: Kid Time Day Care Inc., a North Carolina corporation, D/B/A KidTime Drop In Childcare (hereinafter “KidTime Drop In Childcare”) provides drop-in, short-term child care only on a flexible time basis which includes use of facilities and participation in art and play activities. Drop-in/short term child care programs operate while parents participate in activities that are not employment related (running errands or leisure activities) or while parents easily accessible (within 15 minutes). I agree that I will not use KidTime Drop In Childcare facilities for any impermissible purpose or for regular childcare on a regular basis. There is no time limit that a child may be in attendance at a KidTime Drop In Childcare center as long as this policy is adhered to. KidTime Drop In Childcare does not take field trips, provide transportation, or employ Community Resource Services.
2. Future Visits: This Agreement will be kept on file at KidTime Drop In Childcare and will continue to binding unless revised in writing and consented to by all parties. However, this Agreement does not obligate KidTime Drop In Childcare to continue to provide services, and KidTime Drop In Childcare reserves the right to refuse admission to any child for any reason without liability.
3. Payment: Payment for KidTime Drop In Childcare services will be due at the time of each check-out in cash, check, charge or debit card in the amount calculated by multiplying the time elapsed from check-in to check-out by the rates posted at the time of the visit and for posted amounts for other services. If a block of hours has been purchased, all time used will be debited against the package or block of hours purchased, and any fees due will be the result of usage over the block of hours purchased or the purchase of other KidTime Drop In Childcare services. KidTime Drop In Childcare may refuse to accept payment by check and may charge a fee in the amount prescribed at the time of visit for each returned check. Any changes in fees will be posted for at least 30 days.
a) Refunds: I agree to the NO REFUND Policy on all pre-paid packages or services rendered. ALL SALES FINAL
b) Late Pick up Fees: I agree to pay the KidTime Late Pick Up Fee Policy Fee of $1.00 per minute, per child for every minute after KidTime's nightly closing time of 6PM - Monday - Thursday and 9PM Friday and Saturday. (Example: If you are 15 minutes late you will be charged an additional $15 per child).
4. Safety. I agree that KidTime Drop In Childcare may take actions that it considers prudent to protect the safety of my Child and other children visiting KidTime.
5. Health Policies:
a) Health: I agree that I have notified KidTime Drop In Childcare of all of my child’s medical, psychological, physical, or mental conditions, including any known allergies. KidTime reserves the right not to allow a child to drop in if their presence would pose a direct threat to the health or safety of others or require a fundamental alteration of the program. I warrant that my child has no infectious, contagious, or communicable diseases.
b) Illness: In the event that my Child becomes sick with a contagious illness after visiting KidTime Drop In Childcare and the visit to KidTime Drop In Childcare occurred during the gestation period of such illness, I agree to notify KidTime Drop In Childcare as soon as possible to enable KidTime Drop In Childcare, in its discretion, to notify each family of all the children who may have been exposed. I also agree that, in the event my child becomes ill while at KidTime Drop In Childcare, I will pickup my child within 30 minutes of being notified of such illness.
6. Medical Procedures:
a) General Medical Guidelines/Discretion: Although KidTime Drop in Childcare provides a safe environment, it is possible that my child could get sick or injured during the visit. In such event, I authorize KidTime Drop In Childcare to follow its internal procedures, including simple first aid as reasonably appropriate; however, I understand that KidTime Drop In Childcare shall not be required to strictly follow those guidelines when, in KidTime Drop In Childcare’s judgment, circumstances may require otherwise.
b) Medical Authorization: In the event that KidTime Drop In Childcare determines that emergency medical attention is necessary for my Child, I authorize KidTime Drop In Childcare to act as an agent for me and to give my permission for my Child to be attended by a physician in such circumstances as KidTime Drop In Childcare deems necessary.
7. Cry Policy: I understand KidTime’s 20 minute cry policy. I understand that the teachers at KidTime will try their very best to calm a crying child with every loving tactic necessary. However, if my child cannot be calmed within 20 minutes of arrival and has non-stop crying that is not able to be resolved, I will be asked to pick up my child immediately.
8. Indemnity: I agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless KidTime Drop In Childcare, its owners, agents, and employees, from and against claims, damages, losses, and expenses, including but not limited to attorney’s fees, arising out of or resulting from the actions or omissions of me and/or my child(ren), my agents, family members, and other related parties, including but not limited to failing to comply with these terms and conditions.
