As part of our non-violence atmosphere, we have a no guns or weapons policy.   At no time will we allow any form of weapon / gun in the daycare. This includes, but is not limited to: guns, knives, pocket-knives, swords, stun-guns, pepper spray, mace, nun-chucks or other martial arts accessories, lassos or hand-cuffs, smoke bombs, etc. This policy also includes all toy guns and other toy weapons such as plastic swords. Army toys are also strictly forbidden, as well as play or pretending other toys are guns. If your child is found to have a gun, any weapon, or dangerous substance in his or her possession while in daycare you will receive an immediate phone call informing you that you need to pick up your child immediately.  Aunty’s Childcare will require written assurance from you that your child will not ever bring any guns or other weapons to daycare before we will be able to accept your child for care again. If this is not provided, the terms of this contract will be voided immediately, and you will forfeit any deposits. Toy guns and swords may be fine for pretend play at home, but they are not suitable for a group care environment.
