Kendrick Kidz Center has decade of expertise in creating and running daycare centers. Kendrick Kidz Center proposes to establish and manage an onsite daycare facility for VanderMark Corporation. Included is the detailed cost benefit analysis for the project.
The costs for the development operations and on going maintenance of the project vs. the benefits are summarized for 5 year period and assume an average enrollment of children. These figures do not take into account tax advantages for VanderMark Corporation that may substantially increase the benefits shown here. An estimated $365 month savings in personal time maternity benefits per employee per month with child enrolled is included in the benefits.
As the onsite daycare center will occupy VanderMark facilities VanderMark Corporation agrees to pay for all necessary remodeling prior to opening the center. In addition VanderMark agrees to pay for ongoing maintenance for the daycare center including daily janitorial service. For its services in setting up the daycare center VanderMark agrees to pay Kendrick Kidz Center startup fee of $10 and then to pay Kendrick Kidz Center $1000 per month per child enrolled in daycare with guaranteed minimum of $10 per month. VanderMark will charge its employees whatever costs it deems necessary to make this benefit work for the company with an initial payment per child of $450 month which is substantially lower than average daycare costs in the area.
Kendrick Kidz Center agrees to keep enrollment costs at $1000 mo per child for the first two years of operation and to increase costs in subsequent years by no more than 10% per year. At Kendrick Kidz Center the health and safety of the children entrusted to our care is paramount. Listed below are the methods we propose to ensure everyone's safety.
Access to the onsite daycare center For the safety and security of staff and children access to the center will be limited to one central door which will open into the room currently known as Meeting Room 4. The door will be controlled by electronic card key and only KKC staff members and select VanderMark Human Resources employees will have cardkey. In the event that any cardkey is lost all cardkeys will be reprogrammed with new access codes within hours.
Check in and check out procedures Enrollment of children must be done at VanderMark Human Resources office which will then present to KKC photo and description of the child and the parents and or relatives authorized to pick up the child. Only after photos have been received and posted on KKC’s security board will employees and their children be admitted to the daycare facility. When checking child in or out KKC staff will compare photos and ID to ensure only authorized personnel are dropping off or removing children. The time of entrance and exit for each child will be recorded by KKC staff.
Background Checks and Proper Licensing of All KKC Personnel Kendrick Kidz Center maintains strict adherence to all rules and regulations established by law specifically WAC within the state of Washington. All of our employees have undergone background checks and have received all required training. Health Issues If child requires medication copy of the doctor’s orders and the proper pharmacy labeled container must be provided by the parent.
All our staff members have been trained in basic first aid for children and adults. In the event that any of our staff have any concerns about the health of child KKC reserves the right to call or our on call nurse for additional assistance. KKC always makes concerted effort to contact the parent in the event of child’s accident or illness but if the parent cannot immediately be contacted KKC will have the child transported as needed and evaluated by health care professional.
Parents’ insurance will pay for any needed health care for the child. For the health and safety of all the children in our care KKC staff will not check in child who appears to be very sick or contagious on arrival at the center. VanderMark Corporation will provide the physical space required for the proposed daycare center. Kendrick Kidz Center will provide furniture and other needed supplies.
