Child Release Authorization and Pick-up procedures

The following policy is upheld at Central Learning Center for your child's safety. Please read carefully.

To pick a child up from the center, you must be on the child's authorized pick-up list. You go to the front desk where your child will be called on the radio. Your child will meet you at the front desk. Please be prepared to show your ID to the front desk person every single time when picking up.

When a child has been entrusted to us, we cannot release him/her to anyone who, in our judgment, is under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol. If you, your spouse, or anyone you have given permission to pick up your child comes to the Center in this condition, we will insist that arrangements be made for someone else to transport your child home. We will take the following steps in such a case:

  1. If there is a person in the car that, in our judgment, is not under the influence, and this person is driving or will do so, we will release the child to them. We will call the parent or emergency contact person and notify them of what we have done.
  2. If there is not a person in the car that, in our judgment, is not under the influence, we will call the parent or emergency contact person and ask them to come and pick up the child. If they are unable to come, we will transport the child to their home or the emergency contact person's home if another adult will be there.

If you have any questions, please call our office at (901) 255-8133.

I authorize Central Learning Center to take whatever emergency medical measures are deemed necessary for the protection of my child while he/she is in their care. I understand that this authorization includes transporting my child to the hospital, doctor, or clinic without first obtaining my consent.
