To hold a spot when enrolling you must pay a non-refundable deposit equivalent to one week of childcare. If for any reason the child does not start childcare the deposit will be forfeited as a holding fee.

If your child does not attend daycare as planned because of illness, bad weather or change of plans, you will still be charged for the day. For more information on our policies and procedures, click here.

For your family vacation the first week is charged at half price.

HOLIDAYS I will be closed New Year’s Day, President’s Day, Good Friday, Memorial Day, July 4th, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day and the day after, Christmas Day and the day after. Payment is expected for these days. These days are my paid holidays. In addition to the paid holidays there will be three weeks vacation; one will be various days and the remaining will be full weeks. The various days will be paid. The full weeks will not be a paid week. You will also be responsible to find substitute care for your child(ren) for this time as well as any sick day or conferences.

In case of emergency or illness, I will make every attempt to provide substitute care. However, parents should be prepared with own backup.

Payment is due every Monday morning before services are rendered
