Special circumstances require cooperation and flexibility

All children are unique and we want to treat them as such. We never make assumptions about your kids based on gender, ethnicity, age or physical ability.

View our policies on these special topics:

Absence due to illness, relatives in town, Mom home for the day, etc...

Our staff and facility is always open and ready to handle the day-to-day care of your children. If on occasion your child is out, our costs do not go down. We have already planned for meals, activity and staff, and do not offer a refund or credits for days not used.

Health policy

Written permission must be obtained before administering any medication, (prescription or non-prescription). See over the counter medication release form . We will contact you and ask that your child be picked up within 1 hour if the following symptoms are present:

  • Fever to 101 degrees or more, not related to teething or an ear infection
  • Pink Eye (conjunctivitis)
  • Sore throat / suspected strep infection
  • Pronounced rash / suspected chicken pox
  • Continued vomiting or diarrhea
  • Runny nose with colored discharge
  • Head lice 
  • Other suspected communicable diseases such as measles, influenza, etc.

A child may return to childcare after all of the above symptoms have been absent for 24 hours. View the Central District Health Department's policy on keeping childcare facilities healthy.

Immunizations

We want our children to be as healthy as possible, and in a family environment like ours, diseases are spread if ALL children are not protected. We have a "STRONGLY ADVISE TO IMMUNIZE" policy - all children accepted into BOHRN TO ACHIEVE should be immunized according to Central District Health Department's recommended schedule. We have two weeks to have complete records on a child after enrollment, so be prepared to bring in your records! Exceptions are allowed for personal, medical or religious reasons.

Discipline

All kids need guidelines; we never publicly shame a child. We effectively use distraction techniques in most cases. When discipline is required we use time-out in age-appropriate increments; usually one minute per year of your child's age. All children are unique and respond differently to discipline. If our simple time-out strategy is not effective, we will schedule a conference with parents and staff to work out a successful plan of action.

Special-needs

We will do our best to main-stream all students; if we are unable to handle a situation we do all we can to help you find alternate care.

Diet & food allergies

We serve a nutritious breakfast, hot lunch and two snacks daily, with a focus on whole grains, fruits and vegetables, and variety. If a special diet is needed, it must be provided by the parent on a daily basis. We serve 2% milk; any other strength or special milk required (such as soy) must be provided by the family. Our facility does serve meat, dairy, citrus and nut products. However, we do keep nut products to a minimum and strictly control them to minimize exposure. We do not have peanuts/peanut products anywhere in our facility.

Religious holidays

We respect all religions and will do our best to help your child celebrate your unique family holiday traditions. Parents are encouraged to share with our staff and student population those special traditions. We will be observing the Christian holidays of Easter, and Christmas. If you would like us to observe your religion's holidays also, please make us aware of them.

Personal belongings

No personal toys, food or other items that are not specified on the list provided for getting started should be brought to BOHRN TO ACHIEVE. It causes fights and encourages the "MINE" attitude (which is normal in small children) and doesn't allow us to focus on the "US" attitude we work hard to promote at BOHRN TO ACHIEVE. We will not be responsible for items your child brings that are unauthorized and unlabeled.

Hours of operation & late pick-up

BOHRN TO ACHIEVE is open from 7 am to 6 pm weekdays. Our staff needs a break before and after these times, and parents must pick up their children by 6 pm. After 5 minutes past 6 pm, a $2 per minute fee will be accessed. Your children are anxious to see you and want to go home as badly as you do. Please call us and let us know your situation if you are delayed.

Late payment of fees

The BOHRN TO ACHIEVE facility is expensive to operate and we are in the business of caring for your children with high-quality staff, meals and technology. Weekly fees are paid one week in advance, and are due each Friday for the following week. If payment is not made by end-of-day on Friday, you will have to make other arrangements for the coming week. We do accept credit card payments, e-payments, automatic withdrawals and personal checks.

Tours of the BOHRN TO ACHIEVE facility

Our time spent with children is our first priority. Sometimes we have requests from parents for a tour during our busiest times. For this reason, we ask that you call us first at (208) 672-0101 and let us know you would like a tour. Thanks for your interest!

ICCP

We do accept payment through the Idaho Child Care Program (ICCP), which offers child care payment assistance to low-income qualifying families. You are expected to pay BOHRN TO ACHIEVE in advance and for all the co-pays, according to our standard payment policies. It is the family's responsibility to apply and provide all information to the state of Idaho for this program. Further information on ICCP can be found at:

 

Hand Washing is an extremely important part of our daily routine.
  • arriving
  • toilet use
  • wiping nose
