We pride ourselves on having a team culture that allows our staff and students to soar to new heights. Please review our policies below that contribute to our company culture.

Alphabet Cards


Employees are required to wear Dragon Academy shirts with either Khaki or Navy Pants or Capris or Jeans (with the exception of holes, cut offs, frayed edges) and closed toed shoes.No dangling earrings or jewelry of any kind that little ones can grab on to can be worn. Hair should be clean and well groomed. Nails should be maintained in a conservative length to prevent any unintended scratching of the children in your care and to help prevent the spread of germs or bacteria potentially found in longer nails. Aprons are provided for teachers and assistant teachers and are encouraged.


Employees are welcome to use the business phone for emergencies only on their breaks. Please check with the Director to determine which phone to use. If you receive a non-emergency phone call while you are with children, the Director will take a message for you to receive on your break.

Personal cell phones must be kept either in the employee’s car or in his/her locker. Employee may retrieve his/her cell phone on break.

Smart Watches can be worn but if observed to be using it for texting/calls the employee will be asked to not wear the watch anymore.

Should the employee be caught on his/her cell phone or smart watch, the employee will be terminated immediately. Employee’s primary responsibility is to supervise the children in his/her care. When a staff member is choosing to put focus on other things, the children are deemed as unsupervised which is a safety concern for Dragon Academy.

To ensure that Dragon Academy can operate smoothly and effectively, please read the following:

·         All time off requests should be made two weeks in advance and should be submitted on Dragon Academy’s Time Off Request Forms. Requests will be evaluated based on a few factors, including but not limited to staffing conditions for the time of request. Completing a request does not guarantee time off.

·         Absences due to illness, children’s illness, or family emergencies must be called in at least three hours before an employee is scheduled to work. Opening staff are required to call in between the hours of 4:00pm to 6:00pm the day prior. Sooner for all shifts if at all possible.

·         Employees with children needing care are encouraged to have alternative, back-up childcare arrangements if possible.

·         Non-Director Administrative positions report both to the Center Director and the Owner

·         Car trouble is not considered an emergency. Please arrange for a ride if this problem arises.

·         Employees are required to call their Director. If the Director is not available, the designated Assistant Director must be contacted. Please try both numbers until the phone is answered. A text message will not result as a call out.

Please understand that a childcare facility operates more efficiently if staff members are present for their shift, thus, when we are short on staff not only are the teachers affected, the children as too.  All absences will be monitored, and excessive absences could be grounds for termination.  



Congratulations! You've reached the final step in the onboarding process. To be truly prepared for your first day, please read in detail our employee manual. We're so excited to welcome you aboard!
