    Communicate with the parent by scheduling a meeting with the parent to discuss their repeated lateness and explain the concerns it raises regarding the well-being and safety of the child. Set clear expectations and outline the policy on lateness and the consequences for repeated instances. Clearly explain the expectations and the importance of being punctual in order to ensure the safety and well-being of all children in your care. Document the instances of lateness by keeping a record of each time the parent picks up their child late, including the date and time, in order to build a case for future reference. And lastly follow through. If the lateness continues, it may be necessary to enforce the consequences that were outlined during the meeting with the parent.
