Our Educational Philosophy
Indy Learning Center provides a nurturing, loving, educational environment in a residential setting. We maintain
a positive atmosphere while engaging students in a variety of age-appropriate activities designed
to stimulate learning. We strive to instill Christian morals and values as we show students how to interact appropriately
in a small group setting with other children and adults.
We practice positive redirection as a way to teach
the children to behave appropriately. When a child physical hurts another child (biting, hitting, pushing, etc.) he/she may
be asked to sit in “time-out” for a short period of time (one minute per year in age) to remove him/her from the
situation. Under no circumstance will we ridicule, embarrass or use any type of physical punishment with a child. In cases
where behaviors threaten the safety of other children or the operation of our program we reserve the right to remove the child
from our program.

Illness & Medications
If a child develops a rash, pinkeye, has diarrhea, is vomiting or
running a temperature of 100 degrees or more, he/she must be picked up promptly. With pinkeye, the child must be on the antibiotic
drops for 24 hours before returning. Children must remain fever-free, diarrhea free and vomit
free for 24 hours (without fever reducing medicine) before returning. Please make sure you have a back-up
plan in case your child becomes ill. If your child has a rash, a written doctor's note
stating that it is not contagious and it is okay to return to daycare will be needed. If medication needs to be left
for us to administer, it must be accompanied by a written doctor’s order (even over-the-counter meds). The medication
must be labeled with the child’s name. The “Permission to Administer Medication” form must be completed
and signed by a parent. Please share the info verbally with the caregiver also.
