Health and Safety:
All adults and children are required to wash their hands with soap and water before entering the play area and before snack.
Children attending are required to have a completed D.C. health/immunization form and adults who attend regularly are required to have a health clearance and a TB test.
Peanuts, tree nuts, raw honey, and meat products are not allowed at Intown. Parents are advised to inform the Director in writing if their child has a food allergy.
All parents will receive an Intown Handbook containing a complete discussion of all Intown policies and procedures. A parent orientation meeting is also held before playgroup begins in September.
Duty Day Parents:
As part of our co-op, parents are asked to volunteer at Intown in a role we call "duty parents". We have two parents daily who volunteer for 2 hours in the morning helping to answer the door, bring snack, or help to serve and clean up after snack. You will be asked to volunteer as duty parent no more that 8 mornings through out the year. Parents find this provides a wonderful way to join their child while giving them an opportunity to meet other parents in the playgroup. We know that duties are usually completed with a toddler in tow and so while we depend on our volunteers we want volunteering to be a fun experience.
