Policy and Procedures
Drop-in/short-term child care is defined by law in G.S. 110-86(2)(d)(d1) as a child care arrangement where care is provided while parents participate in activities that are not employment related, and where the parents are on the premises or otherwise easily accessible. We must be able to reach the parent by telephone, cell phone, or email, etc., if they are not on the premises. The parent must be able to get back to the program within 15 minutes. Bryson’s Playroom may be used for a period of time that is no-longer than four hours in duration.
Bryson’s Playroom, Inc is not required to be licensed under North Carolina law G.S. 110-86. (2) B.
We are registered as a drop in childcare center in accordance with North Carolina laws and regulations.
Reservations are not needed to come to Bryson’s Playroom, Inc, but are encouraged. We do welcome reservations anytime to meet your childcare needs. Once the Playroom is at capacity we will not be allowed to accept any more children. We will be more than happy to put you on the waiting list and give you a call once a guest checks out.
For your convenience, you can pre-register your child here: Pre-Register Now. On your first visit we will confirm all of your registration information and afterwards your child will be checked in by a staff member. Please allow up to 15 minutes for this process. Upon entering the Playroom, all shoes should be removed and hands are sanitized. Parents, for safety reasons please do not allow your child to climb on or open the gate to the play area.
During checkout, you will be given the number of minutes used in the Playroom and a photo ID will be required every time to pick-up a child. Additionally, a child will only be released to persons designated on Registration Forms or in your Playroom profile. All monies owed should be paid upon departure from the Playroom.
It is our policy at Bryson’s Playroom, Inc to encourage all children to make good choices about how they behave. We will do this with incentives, coaching and positive reinforcement. We will always attempt to redirect a child into another activity so as to remove them from a situation. For the safety of all the children, excessive aggressive behavior will result in the parent/legal guardian or emergency contact being contacted, and asked to come and pick up their child/children. Unfortunately, the child/children will not be allowed to return unless there is a great improvement in their behavior. Children are expected to act in manner that is appropriate for the social setting that they will be enjoying.
We encourage all children to clean-up after themselves, encouraged to share, listen to adults and participate in our scheduled activities. Should your child experience separation anxiety (crying when parent or legal guardian leaves) our staff will attempt to comfort the child and divert the child’s attention with activities. If after fifteen minutes this strategy does not work we will try to coddle the child to soothe the child and if after a further fifteen minutes this does not work the parent or legal guardian will be contacted to pick-up their child.
Our staff works extremely hard to keep the facility clean, it is very important to the health and safety of all the children that we work together to keep everything clean. Your child/children’s hands will be cleaned with a hand sanitizer prior to entering our facility. We ask that your child/children are appropriately dressed in clean play clothing.
In order to allow Bryson’s Playroom, Inc to maintain a clean and healthy environment for all the children, in our facility, we do not allow children to attend who are sick. We are extremely careful in our operation to protect your child against sickness. We ask that you do not bring your child to our facility if they have an illness.
