ADMISSION PROCEDURES

Admission Process - The first steps would include requesting a Lil’ Folk Farm handbook and stopping by for a tour. We would then encourage you to schedule a visit with your child. Once space is available, a registration form would need to be filled out along with payment of a registration fee. We need a copy of our child’s current immunization records as well as paperwork to be filled our for your child’s file. We do encourage you to call and schedule an appointment with our Nursery and Pre-K teachers when visiting the school programs.

Abuse and Neglect Policy - As required by the State of Maine Law, if the center has a strong reason to suspect child abuse or neglect, the situation will be reported to the State of Maine Department of Protective Services without prior parent notification.

Discipline Policy - Praise and positive reinforcement are effective methods of the behavior of children. When children receive positive and understanding interactions from adults and others, they develop good self-concepts, problem solving abilities and self-discipline. We shall use positive methods of child management, which encourage self-control, self-direction, self-esteem and cooperation. Our steps would include verbal discussion with the child, reminders, and reinforcement. When needed we would use a time-out or “cool down” period. If persistent behaviors continue there will be a parent conference with consistent involvement.

Lil’ Folk Farm is very proud of the programs we have developed. However, we recognize that center based care does not meet the needs of all children. Therefore, Lil’ Folk Farm reserves the right to deny admission into the program to those children whom we feel would be better served in alternative care. Lil’ Folk Farm also reserves the right to dismiss a child if it is in the best interest of the child and/or the school upon reasonable notice to the parent(s).

If you have any questions or suggestions that you would like us to consider, please feel free to talk with us about them. We want to take the opportunity to thank you for your consideration of Lil’ Folk Farm. VISIT US TODAY.
