Enrollment, Group Size, and Discipline
A child is considered to be enrolled in the center only after the registration fee has been received, the director has verified the availability of space for the child, and all enrollment paperwork has been signed, received, reviewed, and approved by the director.
Parents Preferred will never exceed the maximum number of children allowed per adult as mandated by the Texas minimum standards for child care centers.

Smaller group sizes are more productive and allow teachers more opportunities to have one-on-one interactions with children when it is needed. We strive to keep our group sizes small to allow the optimal learning environment for everyone. In an effort to keep our ratios small we will set the following adult:child ratios at Parents Preferred Child Care, LLC

Only positive, encouraging guidance will be used for discipline purposes with your child. Children will be given Positive Reinforcement to assist in learning positive behavior changes. All staff will use Role Modeling and Shadowing to ensure children know what is expected of them and how to act when in the classroom and at the center.
The center will close to observe the following holidays: Good Friday, Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day & the day after, Christmas Eve Day, Christmas Day, and New Year’s Day. Full tuition is due for the weeks in which these days fall, as staff are given these days as paid holidays.
