In the event of an emergency such as fire, tornado, natural disasters, or other emergencies the following is
provided to you as a guideline. There will be four fire drills and two tornado drills practiced yearly.
Emergency evacuation plans are posted at each exit. In the event of an emergency Candyland Child
Development Center will first try to reach the parent, if not possible Candyland Child Development Center
will contact the child’s emergency contact(s) listed in the contract.
The purpose of a lock-down is to keep the children and staff safe from potential violent situations such as an
intruder, hostage situation, trespassing, non-custodial parent, and a person under the influence. Children will
not be released until law enforcement deems as safe. Candyland Child Development Center staff will remain
with the children until they are released to a parent/guardian, or other designated person per contract.
In the event of inclement weather Candyland Child Development Center will make every attempt to stay
open. However, sometimes it is just not safe for the staff, parents, and children to travel in such
dangerous weather. The Director will determine whether to open or close based on the weather
conditions. In case of an early closure we will make every effort to allow for adequate time for you to pick
up your children. Our closing information will be posted on the center’s website and myprocare.com.
Normal tuition will still be due.
