Understandably, people have lots of questions about how we operate the Center, train staff personnel and a myriad of other topics. Here’s where we do our best to answer them. If you have a question for us please feel free to write it down and drop it off at the office or use the button at the bottom of this page.
How often does the Happy Tots staff participate in training?
Our staff is required to complete at least 15 hours of training in early childhood development topics every year. This is in addition to our monthly staff meetings and in-house workshops on a variety of topics including first aid and CPR. Typically, each staff member attends or participates in a training meeting, workshop, seminar or video-conference at least once a month.
Does Happy Tots have an emergency evacuation plan?
Yes, we do. It’s posted in each room. The plan addresses emergencies both in the Center and outside the Center and staff is trained to implement the outlined procedures at a moment’s notice. If the children must be evacuated beyond simply leaving the building and going outdoors we have three nearby, approved, locations for them. The school oversees all child care/nursery school evacuations as well as their own. After September 11th, Entergy also came on-site and installed an “early warning” intercom radio in our office which will work independently of any power outages.
When is Happy Tots Closed?
Happy Tots is only closed on the days listed on our school closings calendar which is always included with the quarterly regletter as well as distributed to all parents at the end of each calendar year so they can plan for the following year. You can also access the Center’s scheduled closings by clicking on the navigation bar on the right of this page. If we ever need to close due to weather or emergency you will be notified by radio and/or a phone call. Whenever possible, unscheduled closings will also be immediately noted on this web site.
