You have the right to access the records of the children in your classroom, including their developmental history (All About Me), medical records, etc. However, all information in a child’s file is confidential. We are prohibited from disclosing or providing the information contained in children’s files to anyone without the express written consent of the parent or guardian.

Personal remarks or conversations about families or children not related to the children’s care with your co-workers in the classroom or any other public place where conversation can be overheard are strictly prohibited. Staff should be careful of sharing work stories with family or household members. When discussing work-related issues, always protect the identity of the child or family.

Additionally, if a parent says something negative about First Circle, avoid arguments and direct discussions, and direct them to Administration.
