HOW TO ENROLL YOUR CHILD
We request parents or caregivers to call the Center to ask about placement availability, questions about the program or to schedule a visit. All families are encouraged to visit once without your child to get an idea if this setting would be a good match. When a placement is available, we ask families to visit with their child a minimum of 3 times before placement begins. This gives the child the chance to begin relationship building and the parent the opportunity to see the child within the context of the group.
Before a child begins placement all required visits and paperwork must be completed, including all financial and child care paperwork.
The Center is open from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Staff Meetings are held the first Wednesday of each month from November through June, except for January. On these days the Center will close at 3:30. In September, the Center closes for two days for Parent Conferences/Home visits.
