Registration Procedure

The child will be admitted following the return of the completed registration packet/forms. Your signed registration forms, along with each Contract Change Request form are binding contracts. All Center forms are used at one time or another for ACCOUNTABILITY or FUNDING and are reviewed  and audited by the Department of Social Services - Community Care Licensing, the California Department of Education, Associated Students, Incorporated, California State University, Long Beach and our independent auditors.

These are official documents. It is extremely important that each form be complete, legible, accurate and signed. Forms that are not complete will be returned and could delay your enrollment.

Parents are required to submit a new Yellow Emergency Contact Information card for each of the following contract periods: Fall, Winter, Spring, and Summer sessions. It is the parent's responsibility to update these cards as changes occur. This information is critical. In the event of an illness or emergency, the staff must be able to locate and contact the child's parent or an authorized adult at all times.

Immunization documentation must be on file before the child’s first day.

A statement from your child's physician attesting to your child's health ("PHYSICIAN'S REPORT - CHILDCARE CENTERS") is required. Your child may start school while you are obtaining the physician's statement if your child's immunization documentation is already on file. The physician's statement must be turned in no later than two weeks after your child starts attending school.
