Policies

Purpose: We exist to provide a safe, fun, and educational environment where children experience God’s love in everything we do.  Harvest PDO wants to partner with parents in their responsibility to provide a spiritual foundation that gives children a secure love, a significant purpose and a strong hope in Christ.

Enrollment: All children must be registered and fees paid before a child is considered enrolled. Enrollment is on a first come basis. When enrollment reaches capacity, a waiting list is formed and interested parties will be contacted when space becomes available. 

Registration Fee: $100 per child. The registration fee is non-refundable and due at the time of registration. 

Tuition: Tuition is $210 per month, due the 1st of each month. There is a 10% discount for 2nd+ siblings with the code “SIBLING” selected in the “Apply Discount” section of the payment portion of registration. A $15 late payment fee will be applied after the 10th of each month. Should you be late to pick-up, a $1/per minute late pick-up fee will start at 2:40pm. If Harvest has not received past tuition by the 10th day of the second consecutive month, we will drop the child from the roll unless you make prior arrangements with the Director.

Drop-Off and Pick-Up: Drop-off is 9:30 AM and Pick-up is 2:30 PM. For the safety of the children our doors are only unlocked from 9:25am-9:45am and then again from 2:20pm-2:40pm. Please let the teacher know, at drop off, if someone other than a parent is picking up your child, and a phone number of that person. Please inform all persons authorized to pick-up your child, they may be asked to show identification. We will not take a child’s word concerning this matter.

Immunization:  A letter or documentation of immunizations from the doctor is required for all children attending Harvest PDO. Parents are required to update records as necessary.

Illness:  Children showing signs of illness, such as fever of 100 degrees or more, coughing, dark runny nose, rashes, vomiting, loose stool, etc. should be kept at home until symptoms are no longer present. A child should be vomit free and fever free (without Tylenol/Advil) for 24 hours before returning. Should your child come down with a serious contagious disease, the Director must be notified immediately.

Medicine:  We will not administer any medication to a child. If you have any special circumstances, please contact the Director. 

Discipline:  Teachers will do their best to redirect a child who is misbehaving. Should the behavior escalate and the need arise, parents will be notified.

ClothingAlways send an extra set of clothing for all age children in case of spills or accidents in a ziplock bag with child’s name on the outside and include these items in a diaper bag or backpack. Always label your child’s coat and other belongings, such as lunch boxes, backpacks, bottles, diaper bags etc. Flip flops should not be worn. Please do not send personal toys with your children.

Weather:  We observe the same weather policy as Collierville Schools. If severe weather threatens, listen to your TV or radio announcements for school closures. We will also notify you by email and update our social media accounts. Be prepared to pick-up your child as soon as you are notified of such closing.

Calendar:  We follow the Collierville School calendar. 

Lunches: Please pack only foods your child can handle easily. Make sure all needed utensils are packed in lunch boxes and send drinks in spill-proof containers. If thermos bottles are used, please ensure that it has a built in straw. Never send carbonated drinks in thermos bottles or the non-spill cups. They will explode, spewing drink into lunch box or diaper bag, and ruin the other contents. Please label everything you send with your child’s name. Ready to eat. We do not refrigerate or microwave food.

Snacks: We will provide a mid-morning snack & water each day. 

Naps: All children will lay down for nap time after lunch. We do not require that they sleep, but we do require them to lie down quietly for at least 30 minutes. Please give us any information on your registration form that will help your child rest easily. We provide nap mats and covers for nap time. You may send a nap necessity (pacifier, special blanket, etc.) for your child in their bags, and we will send it home each day.

Parent/Teacher Conferences: Teachers welcome parents to schedule an appointment for a conference anytime.
