    We do not offer a drop-in program or a sporadic care program.

     

    • Do we pay a registration fee every year?

    The registration fee of $75 is a one-time family fee. Once it has been paid, you do not pay it again.

    If you pick up after 6:00 pm, we charge a $2 late fee for every minute.  We have a dismissal policy after 3 late occurrences.  We encourage you to have alternate pick-ups listed on your child’s account that staff can call in case of an emergency.
