Infants, Toddlers and Preschoolers must turn in the Tennessee Department of Health Certificate of Immunization prior to enrollment. Children under thirty months must have a well-baby check within the last three months.
Parents should inform the center of any and all allergies. These allergies are posted in each classroom and in the kitchen. We work closely with families to meet the needs of children with allergies.
Starting Points does not administer medication to children with the exception of breathing treatments and emergency allergy medication. This should be taken into consideration when medicine is being prescribed by your doctor.
Release of Children
Parents must provide a list of people allowed to pick up their child/children. No child will be permitted to leave the school with anyone other than the parent/guardian or parent designee on the application form/emergency card. Parent designees must show photo identification before a child can be released.
Children must be in age appropriate car seats.
Celebrating Over 20 years
“I visited the daycare center a few months ago and was thoroughly impressed with how nice the place was. I was even informed they have preschool programs as well. I would definitely enroll my children. I recommend to have a visit of your own!”
There are no words to adequately express my gratitude for this daycare/preschool. They have loved and cared for my children beyond any expectation I had.
A wonderful place to work where the staff really cares about the children and the quality of care they are given. It was the best job ever!
The school is so great! Nature, science, reading, writing centers and so many wonderful ways to learn around every corner. The teachers are just so amazing and wonderful with the children. My son has been in Miss Lynn’s class (go Mighty Moths) for little over a year now. He just turned 5 and has been writing and beginning to read for months now. He has learned so much educationally but also socially. So so happy he goes to Starting Points!
