My Childcare Services

Children’s healthy development 

depends on safe and 

positive experiences 

during the first few years of life.  

This is why the first years of a child’s life 

are, by far, the most important.  

A lot of parents need to work 

during these early years 

and it has been my pleasure 

to be able to provide 

loving care for their child.


At Luisa’s Child Care in Amarillo, Texas,

 your child will feel comfortable

 and relaxed while learning through 

one-on-one sessions and more!

I provide all equipment, furniture, and supplies needed for childcare. 

They are cleaned and sanitized as needed, 

and on a daily basis for the children’s health & safety. 

Parents are required to provide disposable diapers, wipes,

 and baby food as needed for their child.

Car seats are not allowed at Daycare due to limited space, 

and because baby is required to be awake upon arrival

 in order to make screening for fever and 

illness symptoms feasible for Childcare Provider. 

If supplies are needed at Daycare,

 parents may drop them off until pick up time. 


As a Complimentary Service, 

 Parents receive a “Daily Record” in writing of their child’s 

Drop Off & Pick Up Times, meals & snacks, diaper times, 

monitored temperature 🤒, and nap times 😴.  

Also, I am bilingual and will be happy to speak to your child 

the language spoken at home, 

may it be American English or Spanish.

About My Facilities and Admissions

My Daycare has a maximum capacity of six children 

(three unrelated and three related)

 I accommodate kids aged 8 weeks to 4 years old 

with unrelated children, and 

8 weeks to 13 years old with related children 

(my nephews, nieces, or grandchildren).  


*A maximum of one Infant,

aged 8 weeks to 11 months, may be enrolled. 

*A maximum of one Toddler,

 aged 12 months to 23 months, may be enrolled. 

*A maximum of four Preschoolers,

 aged 2 to 4 years, may be enrolled. 


AGE REQUIREMENT FOR NEW ENROLLMENTS 

Baby must be 8 weeks to 5 months old, 

by First Day of childcare, with no exceptions. 

*Available Openings may be “reserved” 

at your earliest convenience after your baby is born, 

if enrollment is preferred before 8 weeks of age,

with a paid Three Week Deposit of $375 (non-refundable)

and with a Weekly paid Childcare Enrollment Fee 

of $125 that is due every Friday, for as long as 

your baby’s Childcare Enrollment is reserved. 

However, please keep in mind that your baby may not 

begin attending Daycare until at least 8 weeks of age 

and must also be up to date with immunizations. 

This Regulation is strictly for your baby’s Health & Safety. 

An infant’s immune system doesn’t mature 

until around 2 to 3 months of age. 

This is very important in helping a child 

fight off viruses or bacteria.


(ONLY ONE CHILD PER FAMILY IS ADMITTED) 


DAILY HEALTH CHECKS

Children’s health can change quickly!

A health check is a quick evaluation 

of a child’s body, mood, and behavior. 

The purpose of a health check is to notice

 any illnesses or health concerns 

the child might be experiencing.

Daily health checks are an important tool

 to help me identify sick or injured children. 

Therefore, each child’s day begins with 

a simple health check, and it is completed 

before the parent or guardian leaves to work. 

This is a quick way to make sure 

all children attending are healthy enough 

to be in my Daycare Program. 

I will not be able to tell when a child in my care 

is feeling well enough to participate in activities,

 or recognize when a child is too sick 

to stay in my Daycare Program, 

if that child is crying upon arrival 

or doesn’t want to stay. 

Therefore, all children, including new enrollments, 

must be willing to stay at Daycare 

without crying in order to effectively pass 

their required health check and

 be admitted in a peaceful manner for childcare. 

In addition to daily health checks, 

my program has specific guidelines 

to help me decide whether a child is too sick or 

not healthy enough to stay for child care. 

I must always consider the health 

of other children in my program. 

Daily health checks also provide a record 

of any changes in the child’s appearance or behavior. 

I will do a series of health checks across the day 

if I suspect a child is not feeling well. 

Sick children are excluded 

until they are considered healthy enough 

to return without putting other children’s 

health & safety at risk, as well as their own. 


✅ Children aged 6 months and older  

are not accepted as New Enrollments

Children in this age group take longer to adapt 

to a new Daycare Environment and Daily Routine,

which may cause symptoms of 

separation anxiety for a prolonged time. 

A Public Daycare, with more than one Childcare Provider, 

will be a better fit for children in this age group.


 Luisa’s Child Care specializes in accepting 

as a New Enrollment only one infant at a time, 

for Full Time Childcare. 

The maximum capacity is six children, 

when including one toddler and four preschoolers.

My goal as a Childcare Provider for all children 

that do grow up under my care, 

is to help them feel at home, play,

learn, and have fun throughout their day. 

Most importantly, my Daycare Program is very well 

structured to provide a safe, healthy, stable, 

and trusting environment through the first years 

of  each child’s development 

as an infant, toddler, and preschooler. 

I know someday the time will come when we must part ways, 

because they are ready to move forward 

and attend a Public Daycare or School. 

But, for as long as they are enrolled at Luisa’s Child Care, 

I know that I truly care for them each day.

I proudly see each new accomplishment, 

and will consistently help them grow and learn.

Important Additional Information

(Attendance Policy)

    • My primary goal as a Childcare Provider is to provide a healthy, safe, and fun environment for all children under my care as best I can. My Daycare’s Regulations & Policies have been established with this goal in mind and to help me provide the best quality childcare service that every child deserves.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    
    • My Home 🏠 Daycare has several closing days during the year.  Plus, I don’t admit sick children that are contagious 😷; (have a runny nose, severe congestion, sneezing 🤧, coughing, sore throat, or other illness symptoms with a temperature 🤒 of 99f or higher without the use of fever suppressing medications), or are not feeling well enough to attend Daycare comfortably. Therefore, most children are excluded from childcare several times during the year or are frequently absent. To avoid the stress and inconvenience of being absent from work on a regular basis, all parents are highly recommended and required to have a Dependable Backup Sitter, before enrolling their child in my Home Daycare on a Full-Time Basis. A Backup Sitter that is employed or has a full-time job, will not be a Dependable Backup Sitter for you. 
    •  Closing Days:  When I am too sick and feverish 🥵 to work (rarely), one personal day per month for a maximum of 10 days per year, one week twice per year for family vacations, and all Federal Holidays. 
    • All children are required to be up-to-date with their immunizations and feel well enough to participate comfortably in all childcare activities, including outside play, without compromising other children’s health and safety.  I am the only Childcare Provider present and I don’t have employees to help with the multiple childcare tasks. Therefore, children that are too fussy 😭 😩 (with persistent or nonstop crying/whining), are uncomfortable due to teething or illness 🤒, and need more care than I can provide, they are not admitted for childcare until they are feeling well enough to attend Daycare comfortably 😊. 
    • Children that arrive crying 😢 😭 at Daycare for any reason, will not be admitted for childcare for the rest of the day.  It is the Parents’ responsibility to comfort their child at home prior to attending Daycare.  This regulation will also help keep the Daycare’s environment peaceful and fun for “all” children that are currently attending.  On the other hand, children that do not want to attend Daycare will not be forced to do so at any time.  This regulation includes new enrollments.  This is strictly for the children’s health & safety.  Prolonged stress and anxiety is not healthy for anyone, including for Parents and Provider.  Additionally, children that don’t want to be separated from their parents, naturally will not want to be separated from their caregiver during the day either.  Therefore, providing quality child care service and undivided attention to “all” children under my care will not be feasible, if a clingy child is admitted or forced to attend Daycare.  Each child’s happiness and well being will always be my primary concern, for as long as they are under my care and responsibility. 
    • All children are observed daily upon arrival for illness symptoms.  Children that look ill or have any illness symptoms, their temperature 🤒 will be taken by Childcare Provider before their parent leaves to work to make sure their child is not sick.
    • To stop 🛑 the spread of viruses or infections, during an outbreak or pandemic, all of the children’s temperature 🤒 will be taken upon arrival by Childcare Provider before they are admitted for childcare on a daily basis.  Parents will be required to wait outside while their child is being screened for fever and illness symptoms, or wear a face covering 😷  if carrying an infant inside the Facility for the baby’s Health Check.  Social Distancing must be practiced between parents and children, when more than one child is enrolled.  Therefore, all parents are required to wait in their vehicle during drop off and pick up times until prompted by Childcare Provider to bring their child to the Facility's Entrance.  This Health & Safety Regulation will also be strictly enforced, when a child returns to Daycare after recovering from an illness.  Child’s temperature will be required, with no exceptions, to be completely normal (lower than 99f) and with no illness symptoms, (runny nose, congestion, sneezing 🤧, sore throat, or cough 😷), in order to be readmitted for childcare.  Together we can stop 🛑 the spread! 
    • Sick children may not attend Daycare for 14 days after onset of illness symptoms, unless fever subsides to normal for at least 24 hours and child does not have any illness symptoms.  Two weeks after onset of illness symptoms, child may return to Daycare if fever has subsided to normal for at least 24 hours and does not have acute/severe symptoms caused by allergies or illness. 
    • Children that have a noncommunicable illness; (their temperature is normal, lower than 99f, without the use of fever suppressing medications), yet are lethargic, not feeling well, or are uncomfortable due to pain or acute symptoms; (runny nose, severe congestion, constantly coughing😷, constantly sneezing 🤧 with mucus), they will require care at Home, (not at Daycare), for their own Health & Safety.  
    • A Doctor’s Note will be accepted as a medical document that your child is not contagious, but it will not exempt your full compliance with the Daycare’s “Attendance Policy” and “Illness Policy”. 
    • For sanitary and feasible reasons, when children have a runny nose caused by allergies or illness, they are not admitted for childcare.  For the children’s Health & Safety, I clean and sanitize all toys and furniture as needed to keep the Daycare’s environment germ-free through out the day as best I can.  Additionally, I am constantly busy all day with multiple childcare tasks.  Therefore, it is also not feasible at Daycare to be wiping and clearing up runny noses frequently in order to keep all children in my care comfortable, especially while they are playing or eating with their friends. 
    • *Children that have a runny nose or other acute symptoms caused by allergies or illness, will not be comfortable to attend Daycare, will require more care than I can provide, and will compromise other children’s health & safety
    • A GOOD RULE OF THUMB👍TO ATTEND DAYCARE: YOUR CHILD IS HAPPY 😊, HEALTHY, AND COMFORTABLE.
