Philosophy

The program conducted in Russian and emphasizes development of Russian language skills, including speaking, listening comprehension and introduction to reading.
Our mission is to treat each child individually and make sure his/her needs are met, talents recognized and problem areas addressed.  Our role in the partnership with the parents is to have an open and honest communication and be responsive to special requests and needs to benefit child's growth and development.

Tuition is due for all days including public holidays, sick and snow days during which the child does not attend the center.  This policy applies to children who attend the center full or part time. If a part time child does not attend the center on scheduled dates, there will be no “free make up” days offered.
One tuition-free vacation week can be taken during the school year. If longer vacation time is taken during school year and parents not willing to cover tuition on the missing days, the spot will be offered to a child on the waiting list. During the summer break (July 2d- August 31 st) parents can take unlimited number of vacation days tuition-free with advance approval.  
Any attendance schedule changes require prior administration approval with at least two weeks
notice so the center can adjust teachers schedules as well as classroom assignments. This is done to secure the child's placement at the center.

Tuition is subject to change with 30 days written notice.

Snow day closings

If the snow emergency announced for the city or state and public schools are closed, the center will be closed as well. Days canceled due to snow or other emergency are non-refundable.


Tuition can be paid by a personal check or cash. The Invoice are issued a week prior the new month starts. The tuition is due on the 1st day of each month. You can choose to pay for one or more months at your convenience. Each invoice has a due date. Late fee applied to all invoices not paid by the due date at $3 a day, until it is paid in full.


Security deposit and Termination:  

Deposit of two weeks tuition has to be paid at the start and delivered with the signed contract.  This deposit covers the last two weeks of day care attendance in case the contract terminated.   If you terminate the contract by not attending the Day Care in the middle of the school year (from September until July) deposit will not be returned.


If tuition payment is late and not paid by invoice due date, it will be deducted from security deposit, which will need to be replenished.


Late Pick up

The center closes at 6 pm. All parents and children must be out of the building by 6 pm. Pick up should be planned so the parents have time to speak to the teachers about their childs day, collect belongings and leave center at 6 pm.


Parents who do not pick up and leave the center with their children by 6 pm will be charged $5 late fee for the first five minutes and $10 for each additional five minutes thereof. The fee must be paid on the day of occurrence in cash or check to the teacher who stayed with the child.  If the fee is not paid within a week, it will be deducted from security deposit, which will need to be replenished.


Pick up/Drop off

You can drop your child off anytime from 8 AM to 9 AM.  

You can park in front of the house and along the street, and come in through the main (not the back) entrance.  Please do not block neighbor's driveways.


Dismissal will be different for each child depending on the hours; for full day attendees you should pick up your child preferably after 5:30 PM but no later than 6 PM.  In the spring/summer time if the weather is nice, we may be playing in the back yard so please pick up or drop off your child there.


If your child is late for any reason or sick and not attending, you must let the provider know as soon as possible and not later than 8 AM on the day of the attendance.  


We only allow one parent at the time to enter the classroom to make sure that the activities are not disrupted for other children.We strongly encourage parents not to gather in groups or create traffic during pick up or drop off on the premises or surrounding area.


Unscheduled Absence:

If your child is going to be absent on the scheduled day (sick, appointments, etc.), parents required to inform the center about it before 9 am.


Progress Evaluation


If you have routine questions, please use email to teremokw@verizon.net.

Health Policies


If you child has had fever within 24 hours, he/she cannot attend on that day. Please use your judgment and dont bring your child in with a severe cold, especially cough.  If your child develops a fever or vomits during the day, you will be asked to pick your child up within an hour.  All medications need to be delivered to the provider and properly labeled with your childs name and administering instructions. You will be asked to complete medication administration form for each medication left at the day care.


You will need to bring a note from pediatrician stating that your child has had all the required immunizations and listing all health related issues that the provider needs to be aware of. Children with major illnesses cannot attend Teremok Day Care.


If at any circumstances, the child becomes ill at our care, we reserve the right to determine if the child needs to be isolated from the rest of the group as  a precaution to prevent the illness to spread this includes fever, cough, suspicious rashes, etc. (please refer to health care requirements in Parent's handbook). In this case the parents will be notified via phone and the child will have to leave our care as soon as possible.


Clothing and Miscellaneous


Children should be dressed appropriately for the weather and the outdoor activities.  Please keep in mind that we do plan to go outside everyday.  Your child has to have the following:  1-change of clothing, 2-change of shoes (either sneakers or slippers), 3-bedding including sheets, pillow with pillowcase and a small blanket, 4-supply of diapers for the day, if your child is not toilet trained yet.  All this has to be packed in a knapsack and labeled with your childs name.   Your child can bring his/her favorite toy that can only be used for the nap time.  Candy, cookies, chewing gum, etc. are not allowed.


Parents have to provide all relevant information about the child allergies, favorite and not favorite foods, special character traits and habits.  Parents also need to provide information on their place of work and phone numbers as well as contact name and phone number in cases of emergency when the parents cannot be reached.


During the summer (from May to October) we require all children to bring and keep at the center sunscreen and bug sprays labeled individually.
