General Rules/ Policy

Arrival & Dismissal

  • Please note your child’s class session times and be on time for school. It is difficult for children to walk into a class in full swing and they may miss work that they really enjoy.
  • Also, students that arrive late, take teachers’ attention from work they are doing with other children.
  • Please help your child develop lifelong habits of promptness. Please make lateness a rare occurrence.
  • Please include all authorized pick up individuals in your child’s Registration Form and make sure to inform the office of any changes immediately.
  • We will not let your child go home with anyone that is not authorized to pick up.

Strollers & Scooters

  • All strollers/ scooters must be folded and hung on the orange hooks by the front door
  • Large strollers/ bikes that do not fold will be given a bike lock to be locked outside


  • Snacks (goldfish, cheerios, cheezeit mix) and water are provided in all of our classes. Parents can send in an additional snack with their child if they wish.
  • Please note: there are NO NUT/ PEANUTS and SESAME OIL products allowed in our school.


  • Birthdays are special at Brainy Academy and parents are encouraged to celebrate with their child’s class.
  • Please schedule the celebration date with the teacher and discuss special treats and dietary restrictions with them.
  • We also ask that you bring in a photograph from each year of your child’s life which we can share with the class during the celebration.


  • A child who has had fever, diarrhea or vomiting within the past twenty-four hours may not come to school.
  • Children must be fever-free without fever-reducing medication when they return.
  • Children who are cranky, fatigued, are sneezing and/or coughing or have thick and heavily running mucus should also stay home.

Severe Weather Conditions

  • Brainy Academy will be closed if NYC Public Schools are closed due to severe weather conditions.
