Any child not prepared to attend scheduled events will not be able to stay on that day.

 

NO EXCEPTIONS. NO REFUNDS WILL BE GIVEN.

POSH AND GOSH

iPLANETS ACADEMY is a Co-Op which means all of our parents and/or grandparents or guardians are required to volunteer two hours every 28 days. 

 

Our Co-op is for potty-trained children 4 years old-10 years old or Pre-K to 5th Grade. We encourage parents to share their interests and talents with all our children. 

 

Parent participation at iPLANETS ACADEMY is so extensive and varied that there will be many ways for you to find your niche. We call this POSH (Parents On-Site Hours) or GOSH (Grandmothers/Guardians On-Site Hours).


​When doing POSH/GOSH we ask that you be on time, dependable, flexible, and stay for the duration of the two hours in order for it to be counted. You must be patient and loving towards the children, must be willing to abide by the rules, and must be well-versed in safety and fire safety. 


iPLANETS ACADEMY reserves the right to deny or refuse to allow someone to do POSH/GOSH that we feel is not acting in the best interest of the children or their safety, not following or enforcing the guidelines we set, or not representing iPLANETS ACADEMY favorably. If this becomes the case that person will not be allowed back on the iPLANETS ACADEMY premises.

iPLANETS ACADEMY understands

Co-ops are not for every family.

But for iPLANETS ACADEMY to be successful each family has to be committed to creating an enriching, safe, fun, and learning environment for our children.

 

Parental involvement helps our children to grow in mind, body, spirit and to be nurtured with love, acceptance, and kindness. Time spent over your two hours will not roll over or credit into the next 28 days so please plan accordingly. 

Younger children are not allowed to come with you when you are doing POSH or GOSH, this is for their own safety. Thanks for your understanding. 

DOING POSH

AND GOSH

Some ways you can do POSH/GOSH is attending field trips, doing craft projects, cooking snacks, helping with homework or tutoring, etc. All parents are required to also do 1 hour of beautification each session. Examples of beautification are raking leaves, sanitizing toys,  vacuuming, loading the dishwasher, cleaning the bathrooms, cleaning outdoor toys, etc.

Please understand that visiting for events and activities is different from volunteering and IS NOT considered POSH/GOSH.

POSH/GOSH takes active participation on the part of each parent, prior planning, and scheduling of your volunteer time. 

We understand that things may arise but we ask that you do not schedule POSH/GOSH unless you are pretty certain you can follow through. It is unsettling for the children to get all excited about you coming only to be disappointed. 

You are not allowed to:

  • Answer the front door or let anyone in.

  • Answer the phones without permission.

  • Answer any questions on behalf of iPLANETS ACADEMY.

  • Use or operate the computer or printer without expressed permission. 

  • Be in a restroom or locked room alone with any child.

  • Share information about any child with anyone. Direct all people to iPLANETS ACADEMY. 

  • Leave children you are responsible for unattended for any reason. 

  • Exclude or separate one child from the rest unless they are sick.

  • Operate in an unsafe manner.

  • In order to ensure the safety of the children, we ask that you DO NOT use your cell phone when doing POSH/GOSH at iPLANETS ACADEMY. Thanks for understanding how important your attentiveness is. 

 

ALL  THE  RULES

ARE  ONLINE

We do not issue written copies of the guidelines to parents. Everything is electronic and on this website available to you.  Please read carefully and access it as often as you would like to familiarize yourself with it. You are welcome to screenshot, save or print out any portion of our website.  All parents will be required to sign a form stating they have read and fully understood all guidelines.  Please ask questions if you don't understand something.

ARRIVALS AND DEPARTURES

Leaving your child with a stranger can be a very daunting task. Initially, most children may be a little apprehensive about going with a strange person and to a strange place. iPLANETS ACADEMY will work with your child(ren) to help them overcome feelings of separation anxiety.  If a child is continuing to have separation problems, we will discuss the best course of action for you and your child and determine if we are a good fit for them. 

We ask that you try to help prepare your child for the changes as far in advance as possible. Discuss any concerns. Talk about the new people your child will meet and the new things your child will do. If you are enthusiastic, soon your child will be too.

During this period you might see crying or clinging especially if your child has not been apart from you before. Again, this is heart-wrenching but perfectly normal. Do not leave without telling your child goodbye and reassure them you will be returning. Brief goodbyes are easier for most children to handle then lingering on.

Please be very brief at pick up time as well. This is a time of testing when two different authority figures are present and all the children will test to see if the guidelines still apply. It is important that you back up the guidelines at this time. If your child is with you but observed not adhering to the guidelines they will be reminded of the guidelines, and we will take action to correct them. Children of all ages adjust to transition from one activity to another differently. Most do not like to be too rushed and most do not like to wait too long once they are ready to depart.

NO SHOES ALLOWED INSIDE OF iPLANETS ACADEMY. There is a green bucket for your convenience to store your shoes while on property. You can not walk barefoot but MUST WEAR socks, tights, ballet shoes, or slipper socks at all times while inside. 

Do not leave without making sure all of their belongings are put up in their assigned spot. Also, make sure they have all the belongings they need to function throughout the day. That list can be found HERE. No child should be dropped off without having the necessary items on the list.

Please do not leave your car unattended and please turn your car off before exiting your vehicle.

If a child is picked up early and is in the middle of a project or playing they will have to clean up their portion before they leave so plan accordingly.

SAFETY  PRACTICES

Parents are welcome to pick up their children early if need be. But no child shall be picked up from the playground or leave straight from an educational field trip. All children must be signed in and out and picked up at iPLANETS ACADEMY.

Do not let children play in between, or walk in between cars. Do not load or unload children while standing in the street. Load and unload from the curbside.

 

YOU MUST HOLD THEIR HANDS FROM THE CAR UNTIL SAFELY INSIDE AND FROM INSIDE UNTIL SAFELY WITHIN YOUR CAR.

Please be mindful of other cars and possibly other children at all times! If you can not hold their hand and gather their belongings, then please take the belongings first to your car and then come back and retrieve your child. 

No car should be driving more than 5 miles an hour during arrivals and departures; this will help to avoid any accidents from occurring. We ask that you maintain that speed until you have passed four homes or start that speed at four homes BEFORE you arrive.

Please be mindful of your music levels when arriving and departing. We ask that you turn it off before exiting your car so as not to disturb the neighbors.

Parking space is very limited, so it is very important that you pick up and drop off quickly then proceed to leave the premises safely. Due to the possibility of several parents dropping off at the same time we ask that you do not pull into the driveway but park out front. This also helps with visibility because when exiting the premises you have the ability to see the front and back of your car.

 

Please take the time to do a visual sweep of your entire car before getting in and driving off.

iPLANETS ACADEMY shall not be held responsible for any accidents or mishaps that occur. When it's between two parties then you agree to handle all situations between you and that party according to federal and local state laws.

 

An incident report may be taken and filed by iPLANETS ACADEMY from both parties for future reference. 

We care about the safety of your children! Please practice car seats, booster seats, or seat belts safety. Any children being transported in a way that violates the law may be reported and this can also lead to immediate termination.

If you or any other person appears to be under the influence of alcohol, drugs, or incapable of driving safely we will call the emergency contact person listed on your “Emergency Contact list” to request their assistance. You may also have someone come and get you and your child.  


iPLANETS ACADEMY reserves the right to ask you and/or your child to not return if you refuse a ride and leave with your child, we will notify the police department and child protection services to inform them of this. NO REFUNDS SHALL BE GIVEN, NO EXCEPTIONS

Depending on how the situation unfolds and is handled by the parent or guardian for the first time it may lead to immediate termination.

 

NO REFUNDS SHALL BE GIVEN, NO EXCEPTIONS

OPEN DOOR

Open Door Policy does not mean the doors will be unlocked. For the safety and protection of the children, external doors will be kept locked at all times. 

iPLANETS ACADEMY do not allow unplanned visits by those who are not the mother, grandmother, legal guardians or authorized pick up who have been previously placed on your authorization list. We thank you for understanding the security measures we put in place to maintain the children's safety at iPLANETS ACADEMY. 
You are welcome to Facebook message us or call, if there is no answer please leave a message and we will return the call as soon as we can. You can also stop by but please be mindful of our events, educational field trips, activities, etc. If your child is staying overnight then we do ask that you call in advance for safety reasons. iPLANETS ACADEMY will not open our doors unless we have talked to you in advance. 

​Just remember that visitors have an impact on the child’s behavior and they may “act out of character” while you are here which means become clingy, get very excited or be distracted. This is perfectly normal. Also keep in mind, if your child is having separation problems, it might make it difficult for them when you leave.

You can reach us on most days until 9:00 PM by phone if you should need to have a quick 5-10 minutes discussion. If you need an in-depth conversation concerning your child then we can schedule it. You are welcome to leave a message on Facebook.

CUSTODIAL PARENTS

It is your responsibility to keep your “Authorization to Pick Up List” accurate and up-to-date. Please tell us in advance when someone else that you have authorized will be picking up your child either by phone or through Facebook Messenger. Even if it is an emergency, WE MUST HAVE YOUR PERMISSION BEFOREHAND TO RELEASE YOUR CHILD TO SOMEONE OTHER THAN YOU. THE PERSON MUST SHOW US A GOVERNMENT ISSUED PICTURE ID. ​
​The parent, guardian, or a person authorized by the parent or guardian must use and sign his/her full signature and include the arrival or departure time when signing the child in or out.

​We have to assume that both parents have the right to pick up your child unless you give us a copy of a court order stating otherwise. Without a copy of the court order, we cannot refuse a parent. If we have a court order and a non-custodial parent tries to pick up the child; we will immediately call the custodial parent. If the non-custodial parent leaves with the child; we will immediately call the police and report the situation. 

We will not place the other children at risk by getting into a confrontation with any parent, family member, or guardians. Please take the time to discuss the guidelines with all non-custodial parents and guardians to avoid any issues arising. Unfortunately, their non-compliance in any of these situations will lead to immediate termination. NO REFUNDS WILL BE GIVEN, NO EXCEPTIONS!

WHAT ARE THE QUALIFICATIONS OF MRS. MIMI?

We have owned child cares since 1994. Being a former military, I have owned child cares in 5 states. ​Working with children has always been my passion and life long dream. I am a patient, loving, energetic, dependable mom who will help be the support system you need and act as a bridge between the families and the child(ren)

I am CPR/FIRST AID CERTIFIED, have an EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION IN CHILD CARE & CHILD DEVELOPMENT ASSOCIATE for preschool children. I have over 260 hours of additional child care training INCLUDING 14 within the last year. As a little girl, I played school where I was the teacher and later went on to teach Head Start and Kindergarten in the public school system, youth and a teen teacher in our church as well as working with troubled and mentally challenged teens throughout the years.

I am the upper-middle sister of 7 children & have spent the majority of my life nurturing, caring & teaching other children or senior citizens. Actually, I do not remember a time when I was not caring for children. 

​I feel incredibly blessed to be able to be home with my own son and give a nurturing, safe, loving, and Fun while Learning environment built on equity, integrity, and respect. We create high quality early learning experiences for all the children in our care.  It is a Play, Love, Project, and Faith-based environment where each child will learn how to love GOD, self, family, friends, their community, and the world around them. 

HOW DO I ENROLL MY CHILD SO THEY CAN BEGIN HAVING FUN WHILE LEARNING?

​We aim to establish mutually respectful and supportive relationships with families to build a village of learning as well as fun for all the children who cross our paths. The first step is for families to visit our website to get a feel for what we believe and liking our Facebook website GO HERE.

The next step is to submit interest in meeting Mrs. Mimi through Facebook Messenger and befriending her by

GO HERE.

Once these two initial steps are completed you can at that time decide to fill out the information packet by GO HERE.

 For your convenience, our information packets can be accessed online on our website, printed out and filled out beforehand. You can then bring that packet when you enroll your child to help speed up the process.

All paperwork must be completely filled out BEFORE any child will be allowed to enroll. Once we have all the packets filled out and have all the necessary documentation including immunization records/signed forms/emergency contact information, etc.  and have had the opportunity to discuss your child's specialized needs we can set up a tour. Most tours are done in the Evening after the end of our day so every parent can get the necessary time to ask questions. 

If you decide to enroll then we will collect the necessary tuition and fees which can be seen by GO HERE

We reserve the right to give priority access to children who are currently enrolled and to children who help us maintain our balance of Males to Females ratio.

WHAT DO I DO IF MY CHILD IS GOING TO BE ABSENT? 

If your child is going to be absent at any time, please contact us and make us aware. Each child is given 4 sick days and 2 personal days per session.  These days are reflected as a credit on your tuition. Let us know at that time if you will be using any of your time off days. 

WHAT IF I CAN NOT MAKE IT ON TIME TO PICK UP MY CHILD?

If you are unable to collect your child, please contact us to let us know who will be collecting your child. This person must be an authorized nominee as specified on your child's pickup authorization form and MUST show us a valid photo ID. We encourage all families to ensure these contact details and arrangements are kept up-to-date.

In extreme circumstances where we are unable to contact one of your authorized nominees by closing time, we will contact the necessary authorities for the safe collection of your child. This is why it is important that your contact details and those of your authorized nominees are kept up-to-date at all times.

WHAT IS YOUR REFUND POLICY?

We have a strict no refund policy.

 

When you register, you will be asked to pay a registration fee and tuition. These fees are non-refundable. 
Tuition payments lost due to withdrawal or absence from a program may not be transferred or applied to a future program. If your
child(ren) has to go home early due to behavior, illness, an act of GOD. NO REFUNDS WILL BE GIVEN, NO EXCEPTION.

HOW DO YOU ACHIEVE MY CHILD GROWTH AND DEVELOPMENT VS. DAYCARE?


Our curriculum is designed to follow your child’s development individually.  He/she is introduced to projects as they master previous skills.  The projects are self-correcting and offer internal confidence building.  Once mastered, the next project is presented.  This leads to a natural talent for goal setting and achieving.  There are no “rote memory” activities, once a child has mastered a concept, they truly have learned it.  Learning in a hands-on, project-oriented environment develops far superior critical thinking skills at an early age.

 WHAT IF MY CHILD HAS HAD PRIOR BEHAVIORAL PROBLEMS?

Learning how to get along with other children takes time and lots of practice. Positive guidance is the key, and we work with children teaching them acceptable behaviors and simple guidelines to help them learn how to regulate their emotions and responses to others. We work with families to support the development of their children’s social skills, focus our teaching on supporting children to become truly independent and socially competent, and we allow our Autism children to have the space they need if that need arises. No child shall be forced to participate or interact with others. Our positive guidance philosophy includes a problem-solving approach. Our goal is that children learn how to work out conflict in a socially acceptable and peaceful manner. Pre-K children are still learning how to communicate through dialogue and are also still impulsive by nature.

All socially inappropriate behaviors are redirected, and desired behaviors are modeled. iPLANETS ACADEMY uses natural and logical consequences to assist children in learning self-control. We promote 'peaceful moments' in which a child may take a break from the current activity and sit down to regroup in a designated quiet area with adult support nearby. Ongoing aggressive behaviors are looked at on an individual and situational basis. It is our priority to maintain a safe environment for all children. Action plans, including formal referrals and family meetings, are often part of these action plans.

WILL YOU TAKE MY CHILD SWIMMING?

 

We do attend water parks, enjoy water slides, and low entry aquatic centers where they have lifeguards on duty and splash pads. We also may take them into a wave pool with strict guidelines on how far they can venture as well as enjoy lazy pools. Please discuss water safety with your child. We do not allow our children to be in more than 2 1/2 FT of water at any time. 

All parents must have on file a Swim and Aquatic Waiver form in order for your child to attend any water activities. That form can be found GO HERE

Please read over our sun safety guidelines by GO HERE.

Also, read over our swimwear guidelines by GO HERE.  

 

CAN GRANDPARENTS, GUARDIANS OR PARENTS GET INVOLVED?

 

Family involvement enhances children’s well-being, learning, and development, so families are welcome at iPLANETS ACADEMY at all times. We encourage families to provide input into learning programs, to spend time with their children, to contribute their skills and resources, and to be involved as much or as little as they wish. We also require parents, guardians, or authorized people to volunteer for two hours every 28th day working alongside the children. We also require at least 1 hour of beautification every 28 days. 

ASKED

WHAT LEARNING DO THEY HAVE AT iPLANETS ACADEMY? 

iPLANETS ACADEMY is arranged so that children can engage in a series of structured and unstructured activities as well as link both social/emotional competence and early academic learning. Here we encourage inquiry and wondering by guiding the exploration of the natural world and using found materials for play and creative arts. We expose them to new spaces, materials, and the concept that different environments can hold different expectations. We encourage our children to take risks, explore beyond what they believed was possible, fearlessly engage in the unknown, and discover something new about the world and themselves. 

Although children follow predictable patterns of development, the rate, pace, and actual manifestation of any skill are unique to all children. Individual differences such as personality, temperament, learning style, native language, special needs, and family culture are embraced. Here at iPLANETS ACADEMY we spend time getting to know each and every child, and create developmentally appropriate goals for them as a whole, and tailor learning opportunities for them individually. This results in a rich curriculum and classroom environment.

Our curriculum is broken into three parts; academic, enrichment, and character development. This is where we strive to not only create lifelong learners but also to develop each child physically, mentally, and spiritually. In order to achieve this, we use a combination of curricula that meet our DICE guidelines and standards when preparing weekly lesson plans.

DICE stands for:

  • D-Discovery

  • I-Intelligences (All 9)

  • C-Cognitive

  • E-Exploration

We help our children to build on skills such as positive social interactions, problem-solving, science, technology, math, literacy, creative arts, geography, Social Sciences, and music, etc. 

We have a large library of resources used to reach each child to inspire learning, and we continue to search for more ways to teach our children all the time. Working at each child's own pace to ensure they understand and grasp the educational concepts being taught. 

WHAT IF MY CHILD HAS ALLERGIES?

Please make sure to notate this on your "About Me" form. Please check the menus to ensure your child is not allergic to anything we are serving. 

It is expected that parents of children with life-threatening allergies, asthma, or other emergency conditions will provide emergency supplies and medications at the beginning of each and every session. Medication must NOT be expired and medication will NOT be kept over the summer. Any medication not picked up at the end of the paid session will be destroyed.

GO HERE  for more instructions and guidelines related to dealing with Allergies. 

WHAT IF MY CHILD DOESN'T LIKE THEIR FOOD? WILL THEY BE GIVEN AN ALTERNATIVE? CAN I BRING FOOD FOR MY CHILD?

 

We have a "2 Bites Rule" which means each child shall be encouraged to sample and at least taste 2 bites before they can say they do not like a particular food. This is to help to broaden their palette.

The food that will be served at iPLANETS ACADEMY is not for taste but always to ensure they get their proper nutrients and meet daily requirements. A balanced meal is for their personal growth, health, overall development and to help them keep up with our vigorous physical schedules.

But no child will be forced to eat nor will the food be withheld as punishment at any time.

We do not offer alternative meals or snacks because this only encourages them to not try new foods. We also do not allow children to bring any food or snacks from home unless it is for all the children. We only allow store-bought sealed food items when donating food for all the children. 

WHAT IF MY CHILD HAS A DIFFERENT REST TIME?

 

Naps and Rest times are important to ensure they have the energy they need to participate fully in their early learning program. If your child does not want to rest that is fine, but they must remain on their cot or mattress for the duration of the nap and rest period. They must remain quiet so as not to disturb the other children who are resting. No child shall ever be restrained but every child shall be required to adhere to this policy. Please be mindful of our Nap and Rest times when your children are at home. It makes it very difficult and frustrating for your child to adhere to this policy if you are giving them naps right before they come here.

WHAT SPECIAL MEDICAL, SOCIAL, OR BEHAVIORAL

SUPPORT DO YOU HAVE?

 

While we offer top-notch programs, we may not be the best program or have the right support in place for all children, especially those requiring special medical, behavioral, or social support. Please contact us with questions about whether iPlanets Academy offers the right experience and support for your child.

 

WHAT IS OUR TAX I.D. ?

Our Tax ID number is 83-3123169. Many people need this for their financial records.

CAN MY HOMESCHOOL STUDENT RECEIVE SPECIAL EDUCATION SERVICES FROM OUR LOCAL PUBLIC SCHOOL?

Yes, state law enables homeschool students who are five years old or younger with special education needs to become eligible for an evaluation for special education services as long as the parent signs a consent to have his or her child evaluated.

State law requires that Texas public schools are required to provide some or all of the special needs services to homeschool students who become eligible to receive these services at the public school where they would normally attend.

The most common services provided that homeschool parents take advantage of our speech therapy, physical therapy, occupational therapy, or reading services. These services will be recommended in the student’s Individualized Education Program (IEP) after the evaluation is conducted with the child at the parent’s consent.

WHAT IS TEXAS

 HOMESCHOOL LAWS? 

Homeschools in Texas are private schools for the purposes of compulsory attendance and private schools are not regulated by the state (Texas does not regulate the number of days per year that private schools must be in a session or the number of days children must attend). There is also no minimum amount of hours you must homeschool each day.

The school district also has no authority to approve curricula used by private schools. Read more about the regulation of private homeschools in Texas by GO HERE.

It is important to make certain that your child(ren) are withdrawn before homeschooling begins and that homeschooling begins as soon as your student is withdrawn in order to avoid the public school counting your student as absent and potentially filing truancy charges.

It is important to note that you are not required to complete any requirements except to submit a valid notice of withdrawal that details your intent to homeschool. 

WHY DO YOU COMBINE AGE GROUPS IN YOUR ACCELERATED ACCELERATED PRIMARY? 


We combine age groups in our Accelerated Primary for several reasons. Our combined class gives our older children an opportunity to be mentors which helps them become natural leaders helping them to develop empathy, self-esteem, and self-confidence. As their leadership skills develop, they will also learn enthusiasm for the learning process which they can use to adapt to any situation throughout their lives. Helping to facilitate the younger child’s learning by becoming good role models. The younger children naturally look up to older children and therefore are more inclined to learn from them. They are less shy with older children than they are with adults and more apt to imitate appropriate behavior. When a younger child sees a work he/she is interested in, they have also watched the progression needed to be able to understand and handle the work.  

Our overall ultimate goal is to lay the groundwork for all of our children to become responsible, self-directed learners, self-disciplined, critical, and creative thinkers.

We will not go against any guidelines to satisfy any parent or guardian's personal desires, wants or needs, etc. This is to remain fair and consistent and protect all families as well as iPLANETS ACADEMY. So please read all guidelines often and ensure before signing all documents that you understand fully what we are both agreeing to. All families can be assured that we will at all times respect the privacy of the family when addressing any concern or grievance. We have a very simple motto, “ If you have a problem tell us, and we can address it to resolve it. If you are pleased with the level of service we give, please tell and share with everyone you meet.”

WHY DO YOU COMBINE AGE GROUPS? 


We combine age groups in our Accelerated Primary class for several reasons. First, the younger children naturally look up to older children and therefore are more inclined to learn from them. They are less shy with older children than they are with adults and more apt to imitate appropriate behavior. The older children then become natural leaders. Helping to facilitate the younger child’s learning by becoming good role models. 

Having mixed groups also aids in becoming goal-oriented. When a younger child sees a work he/she is interested in, they have also watched the progression needed to be able to understand and handle the work.
