How much does it cost for a child to attend The Kidz Club?

What is the admission process, and how long does it take?
You can complete an online referral form or call us at 502-210-5538 to complete a referral form. A Medical Release form will be sent to you for your signature so that we can obtain your child’s medical records from their provider(s). You will then bring your child to the center for an Initial Assessment. While your child is being assessed, you will complete additional required paperwork. A Plan of Care will be created by a nurse and sent to your child’s provider for review and signature. The provider-signed Plan of Care will be submitted to insurance, and your family will be contacted for a start date. The process usually takes about two weeks. The Kidz Club serves clients equally without regard to race color, religion or national origin.

Is my child at risk of getting sick in this environment?
Our precautions and infection control procedures are based on protecting every child as each one is considered medically fragile. HEPA air filtration, chlorine dioxide decontamination, and medical grade sanitizing ensure a safe environment for our vulnerable population. Children who are sick or have symptoms of an infectious condition may not attend the center. Daily assessments for each child and monitoring throughout the day maintain the overall health of our population.
May I pop in to visit my child during the day?
Should you wish to see your child during the day, please call ahead to make this arrangement. Nap time is between 11:30 and 2pm daily.
What is the staff / child ratio?
Can my child bring personal items to the center?
We prefer that children do not bring toys from home unless they can be shared with the entire group (e.g., books, DVDs, etc.). Exceptions to this policy will be that a child may bring a favorite sleep toy for naptime only, and toys may be brought for show and tell activities. We are not responsible for any lost or broken personal items. All personal items must be clearly marked with the child’s name.
What happens if my child is absent?
Parents/Guardians must call the center to advise them of their child’s absence. If your child has been hospitalized, please let the center know so that we can offer assistance. If your child will be away on vacation, please let the center know.
What happens if my child is ill?
The Kidz Club aims to prevent and control the spread of illness and infection to protect vulnerable children. If your child is ill, please let center staff know and keep your child at home. If your child becomes ill/has a fever while at The Kidz Club, the center will call you and ask you to pick up your child within one hour. Your child must be fever and/or symptom free for 24 hours before returning to The Kidz Club. Depending on the symptoms, management may require your child be seen by their Primary Care Physician or the Emergency Department. If this is the case, you will be required to bring a note for your child to return.
How will I know if the center is open if there’s inclement weather?
How secure / safe is the center?
Parents/Guardians drop off children in the front entrance of the buildings and children are valeted to their classrooms. Because we are a medical facility, access to our buildings is severely restricted. Our centers have magnetic locks on all entrances/exits. Only center staff have key cards to disable the locks and access the centers.
What if someone different must pick up my child?
You will complete an Approved Pickup list with details of anyone who may pick up your child. This list can be updated at any time. Should someone who is not on your Approved Pickup list need to collect your child from the center, you can call the center with their details. They will need to supply a state-issued photo ID, which will be copied for our records, when they fetch your child. The center can assist in trying to help you reach an Approved Pickup contact when necessary.
How is it decided which classroom my child will be placed in?
Your child’s emotional, social, physical, and developmental needs will be taken into consideration when deciding on the correct classroom for them.
Who regulates PPECs?
Prescribed Pediatric Extended Care is a state-regulated service in Kentucky. All PPECs must obtain a license from the state before opening. Having been Kentucky’s first PPEC, The Kidz Club helped formulate and set high standards for all PPECs. The state’s Office of Inspector General visits each center at least one time per calendar year.
