Heaven Sent In Home Child Care Policies & Procedures
We have worked hard to provide a quality home daycare option for our families. To ensure both Heaven Sent and our families are protected, and know what to expect, we have a contract outlining our policies and procedures that must be singed and notarized before a child is accepted into our daycare.

Full-Time, Part-Time & Drop-In Care
Heaven Sent offers both full-time, part-time and drop-in care. In order to maintain a low caregiver/child ratio, part-time care will be billed at a full-time rate. While we offer drop-in positions, based on availability, priority tuition enrollment will be given to full-time/ part-time care. Call for more information.
Growth & Development
Your child’s growth and development are of great importance at Heaven Sent In-Home Child Care. I will closely supervise your child while he/she is in my care, and will provide enriching experiences to enhance your child’s development. I will provide your child with the love and security they need while in my care.
Playtime can be a learning experience. To enrich your child’s growth, I will endeavor to provide them with daily activities, such as walks, listening to music, watching Disney movies, sing-a-longs, learning time as well as playtime. All this will be done while using age appropriate toys, sharing with others lessons, and teaching them about Christian values.
Buckles, belts, overalls and suspenders when in a hurry to use the bathroom may create a problem. I also require that each potty training child have 6 changes of training pants (for sanitary reasons I require plastic pants to go over underwear or training pants) or pull-ups. Extra changes of clothing are also necessary, including socks.
No child will be hit, spanked, belittled, or otherwise intimidated at Heaven Sent In-Home Child Care — even with parental permission. No corporal punishment will be used. Children will be treated with courtesy, respect, and patience. Discipline will be according to age and understanding level.
Younger children, babies and toddlers, will be directed to other activities. Older children will be given time-outs depending on the severity of the offense (almost always 1-minute per year of age, never to be more than 10 minutes). If a child becomes a persistent behavior problem, I will address it with you, and we will try to resolve it together.
At no time will a child be subjected to physical punishment or shaming, frightening or humiliating methods, or any type of verbal abuse, threats, derogatory remarks, or deprivation of a meal. No child will ever be punished for toilet accidents.
Parents must provide all necessary items to care for your child. Medications will only be administered with written consent by the parent and the medication must be in the original container.
