Special Instructions

Any special instructions such as not letting your child go outside on a particular day, someone other than an authorized person picking up your child, etc., should be noted to your child's teacher in writing. If you want someone else to pick up your child you must provide written permission to the director. Photo identification will be required.

Personal Articles & Clothing

  • The Center should have a complete change of clothing in your child's bin at all times (please replace ASAP if used).
  • Parents provide one standard cot sheet and a small blanket for their child's personal use (to allow each child a comfort item from home).
  • During summer months we will have a sprinkler day. Please bring a swimsuit and towel for your child (apply sunscreen at home if needed).
  • Dress your child in comfortable clothing and tennis shoes so he/she can play outside (weather permitting). No open-toed shoes. Do not allow your child to wear coats or other articles of clothing with strings.
  • Parents should label everything they send to the center. We try very hard to keep our centers organized - this will assist us.


For safety and sanitary reasons we cannot allow children to bring toys, money, gadgets, etc., to the Center.


Payment must be made in advance the first day the child attends. If payment is not received on Monday there will be a $10.00 late fee and your child will not be allowed to attend until payment is made. Full payment is required regardless of the child's attendance. The regular rate is for 10 hours of child care each day. Each child will get one week of vacation each year after they have been enrolled one year (2 week written notice required). Vacation must be taken in full weeks. A two week notice is required upon withdrawing your child from the Center. If notice is not given, you will be required to pay for those two weeks. See rate sheet for additional information.
