Services and Functions that our Franchisees perform
Under agreements between our Lil’ Angels Franchisees and client schools (including Pre-schools, Child daycare, and Pre-K for purposes of this definition) we will photograph all students who appear at the camera on designated Picture Day, and we rely on your child’s school Director and/or owner/operator to obtain any parental consents necessary for us to perform the work they have contracted for us to do. Lil’ Angels Franchisees have a reasonable expectation that they are permitted to photograph each individual who is presented to the camera for that purpose. If you are a parent and/or legal guardian who does not want your child to participate in the facility’s Picture Day, it is your responsibility to notify the Director and/or owner ahead of time that you do not wish to have your child photographed.
