All parents should familiarize themselves with NC childcare laws in order to set reasonable expectations for both the school and the parents. At Falls Academy, we welcome all your questions and concerns; please feel free to contact a member of our management team should you need assistance in any way.
How do I ensure that my Infant/Toddler is receiving the correct amount of food?
When your baby first enrolls at Falls Academy we ask that you fill out a feeding plan to ensure that your child is receiving the same nutritional quantities they do at home. As your baby grows this will change so be sure to update the feeding plan often to reflect changing needs.
How much notice do I need to give if I would like to remove my child from Falls Academy?
We require the standard two weeks notice.

All medications must have a health care professional documentation detailing how long and what time of the day to administer the medication. All medications must be in their original container with a current date, the child’s name, name of the medication, dosage and mode of administration and name of prescribing physician or dentist on it. Medications will be administered to children only if the “Authorization to Administer Medication” form filled out by the parent is current and on file at the center. Always give the medication directly to the director. All medications are stored in a locked container out of the reach of children. Any unused medication will be returned to you or properly disposed.
INFANTS: Diaper Powder will not be applied. Consent of a health care provider is not required for diaper cream. The diaper cream must be in their original container with a current date and the child’s name is written on the tube. Diaper Cream can only be applied if the “Authorization to Administer Medication” form filled out by the parent is current and with the diaper cream. Always give the cream to the infant room teacher which will be stored in a locked container out of the reach of children. Any unused or expired cream will be returned to you or properly disposed.
