Health & Safety

If you’re searching for an early learning center in Houston, First Class Child Development strives to be the best of the best.

Medications & Medical Conditions

MEDICATIONS

Prescription medications must be in original containers labeled with your child’s name, date, dosage directions and physician’s name. Non-prescription medication must also be labeled with your child’s name. (Fever reducing medications will not be administered as they mask fever and can put others at risk of becoming ill as a result.) You are required to complete the Medicine Authorization Form located at the office when dispensing of medication is required by First Class Child Development Center’s staff. The Medicine Authorization Form can be completed for up to a one-week period; for the child’s safety, a new form must be filled out each week, if necessary. The administration personnel of First Class Child Development Center administer the medications.

For safety reasons, please do not leave any medications in your child’s bag or cubby. All non-refrigerated medication should be in the original container and left at the front desk. All medications requiring refrigeration will be kept in the refrigerator in a container labeled ‘Medicine’.

MEDICAL CONDITIONS

It is important that you inform the staff and the front office of any special food allergies or medical conditions your child has. This will assist us in being better prepared to handle any emergencies that may arise.

ACCIDENTS/EMERGENCY CARE

Although First Class Child Development Center has an extensive safety awareness program, along with routine inspections and regular maintenance of our building, playground and equipment, accidents can happen. Most accidents occur as the result of children being children: playing, running, testing their abilities and interactive skills. If such accidents occur that require medical attention, parents are contacted immediately.

Please keep the front office updated of changes in your business and home addresses and phone numbers, so you can easily be reached. If you or the other listed contact people cannot be reached, we will call the physician specified by you on your child’s Medical Release Form. In the event immediate professional medical attention is required, your child will be taken to the nearest licensed medical treatment facility or hospital.

REPORT SUSPECTED CHILD ABUSE OR NEGLECT

It is our intent to build a partnership with parents to help them to provide the most suitable environment possible for children. It is important for parents to be aware that state law requires any and all incidents of suspected child abuse or neglect to be reported to the Texas Department of Children’s Protective Services. It is the responsibility of this agency to investigate each reported case.
