F.8. Confidentiality Policy

We treat information about children and families with confidentiality and we ask that you do the same if you spend time in the center. This means that we may share information about a child

ONLY with that child’s parents or guardians, unless specific written permission has been obtained to do so with others.  Information may be shared with UNOW staff on a need-to-know basis, which usually means only those staff who work directly with the child and the program coordinator or Director/Associate Director.  Other than UNOW Staff and Administration, Licensing or accrediting representatives are the only people other than parents/guardians who have access to children’s confidential information.  You may have access to your child’s file at any time by coming to the office and asking the Director or Executive Assistant. We are happy to forward copies of children’s files to their next school or to other agencies with your written permission.
