ARRIVAL AND DISMISSAL PROCEDURES
Please read this notice very carefully and share it with any and all persons who may drop off and/or pick-up your child. This includes grandparents, nannies, sitters and any persons designated on your pick-up list.
Due to the DCF requirements and for the safety of our preschoolers, your child must be dropped off and picked up by an adult at their scheduled arrival/dismissal time.
PLEASE use the parking lot in front of the gym (Family Life Building) to park and use the appropriate walk way to cross. You will enter through the black gates in between Kohl’s Hall and the Gym and then proceed into the Main Entrance of Assumption ECLC building to drop off/pick-up your child.
We cannot stress enough the importance of:
- Holding your child’s hand when coming from or going to your car.
- Keeping social conversations to a minimum so that children are safely in your care.
- Greeting your child upon drop off/pick-up, whether in car or walking – CELL PHONES SHOULD NOT TO BE USED AT THIS TIME!
Children who are registered for Preschool Full Day may be dropped off beginning at 7:00 am. They must be walked in with a parent or adult to the front lobby. Older siblings may not drop off.
Children who are registered for the Preschool in the Morning and Preschool with Extended Day may drop off beginning at 7:30am at the front lobby. Older siblings may not drop off.
PRESCHOOL BEGINS PROMPTLY at 8:00am. It is crucial that your child arrive on time. When our children arrive late, the routine or whole trajectory of the day is affected. If being late is a pattern, it damages a child’s motivation towards learning and school in general.
Early Arrival is offered at Assumption’s Early Childhood Learning Center for Preschool in the Morning and Preschool with Extended Day from 7:00 am-7:30 am, Monday-Friday. It is an advance sign-up program. Please see the Early Arrival Registration form for the guidelines and fees.

- Preschool in the Morning: 12:00 pm (late pick-ups will be billed at $6/hour)
- Preschool with Extended Day: 3:00 pm (late pick-ups will be billed at $6/hour)
- VPK: 11:00am (late pick-ups will be billed at $6/hour)

- $6.00 for the first child
- $4.00 for each additional child

Authorized Persons on Pick-Up List
The only person authorized to pick-up your child is the custodial parent or persons designated on your pick-up list. Proper identification is required. Please add or make changes on your Parent RenWeb account or contact the Front Office to change or add a name to the pick-up list. If the name of the said person is NOT on the pick-up list they will NOT be able to pick your child up, unless the Director is notified in writing and /or by phone.
Your full cooperation is needed and expected in regard to the Arrival/Dismissal Procedures at Assumption Early Childhood Learning Center. We feel strongly that this will make the arrival and dismissal process SAFE FOR OUR CHILDREN AND FAMILIES. In all situations, our goal is the utmost safety for all concerned.
Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
