Sprouts Club must have a completed registration and parent policy and release form before children can be accepted for care. If children are not enrolled in a school, parents must also complete a parent’s health statement or physician health statement form (a copy of the immunization records with a physician’s health statement and physician’s signature may be provided in place of the physicians health statement form) before the second visit. All children must be current on appropriate immunizations, vision and hearing screen requirements, and tuberculosis testing in order to be admitted to Sprouts Club. We must have an updated immunization record or physician health statement form each year until the child enters school. Parents must advise Sprouts Club of changes of address, phone numbers, and children’s health and allergies.
The costs per child are: child (over 18 months) $4.00 per hour, each additional sibling (over 18 months) $3.25 per hour. An additional $0.50/hour for any child that is not potty trained. After 6:00PM the rates increase $1.00/child. The costs are calculated to the minute. Payment is due at time of check-out. If Payment is not made at pickup and a balance is due, a $10.00 late fee will be issued to each child’s account. No refunds are given.

If meals are brought into the center by the parent, the parent understands that Sprouts Club is not responsible for the nutritional value or meeting the child’s daily food needs. If a child’s stay lasts during a meal time, and they are not signed up for a meal, we will feed them and add the meal cost to the bill. Meals may be brought from home. Snacks are served at 10:00 a.m., 3:00 p.m. and consist of crackers and juice.
Sprouts Club cannot accept children who are ill. Children must be fever-free and symptom-free for at least 24 hours before visiting Sprouts Club. We cannot administer any medication or routine medical procedures (i.e. inhalers, nebulizers). No medications are permitted in the center. In the event that a child becomes ill, the parent or emergency contact will be called to pick up the child immediately. Children who are ill will be excluded from other children until parent pick-up.
Sprouts Club does not discriminate against persons with disabilities. However, Sprouts Club staff are not trained to care for children with special needs and our services do not include one-on-one supervision.
Please be sure to update emergency contact phone numbers with our staff. In the event of a medical emergency, we will phone the parent immediately and call 911.
Only parents will be allowed to check children in and out of Sprouts Club. Parents must show their photo identification upon arrival, unless photo is stored in our database. Authorized persons will be able to check children in and out if prior arrangements are made with Sprouts Club and the parent has completed an Alternate Release Form.
Only socks are to be worn into the play area for safety and cleanliness.
We only use positive methods of discipline and guidance that encourage self-esteem, which include praise of good behavior, reminding children of behavior expectations, redirection and brief supervised separation or time-out from the group, when appropriate for the child’s age and development, which is limited to no more than one minute per year of the child’s age. No corporal punishment, physical or verbal abuse, abusive language, or withdrawal of food, naps, or toilet training of any kind is allowed. For the safety of all, children that show repeated misbehavior or biting will be asked to take a two week respite from Sprouts Club.
The staff of Sprouts Club are required by law to report any instance where there is reason to suspect the occurrence of physical, sexual, or emotional child abuse, child neglect or exploitation to the police or Child Protective Services. Notification of the parents is solely dependent upon the recommendation of the police or Child Protective Services.
Sprouts Club has an Emergency Plan in place and all staff have been trained on emergency procedures. The Emergency Plan is available for review in our office. In the event of a center evacuation, parents will be contacted immediately. The relocation site is posted at each Sprouts Club center.
Sprouts Club does not discriminate on the basis of gender, race, color, religion, or national origin. However, we reserve the right to refuse service to any person or persons for legitimate business reasons, such as maintaining the safety of our facility and the children in our care.
I hereby grant Sprouts Club permission to use photographs/video of my child(ren), taken during their stay at Sprouts Club, to be used solely for the purposes of Sprouts Club promotional material, website, and publications.
