Early Learning believes in giving children the best possible education. Regular attendance is needed in order to ensure that the highest quality education experience is possible.
Students are required to attend classes on a daily basis and parents are responsible for notifying the school if their child will be absent. When the child is ill, parents will be given a specific set of instructions for their student to return when healthy. If there are extenuating circumstances or concerns that prevent a student from attending regularly, the staff will work with the family to help arrange for resources that will support the student and family in attending regularly.
It is a requirement that an explanation must be included as to why the child cannot attend and when the child will return (if known). In the event of a planned family vacation or family business that causes extended absence, the absence cannot exceed 20 school days. If the planned absence extends beyond 20 days, the school will attempt to contact the family by phone and in writing (email, or mail) if the family does not respond or plan to attend immediately, the spot will be considered vacated and the administration will then need to fill that vacated spot within the required 30 day time period.
