CENTER CLOSINGS

The center will be closed the following holidays: New Years Day, Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, the Friday after Thanksgiving, and Christmas Day. We will also be closing at 4:00pm on Christmas Eve. You will be charged for these days. Occasionally, the holidays fall on the weekend so they are observed on Monday or Friday. If this happens and for this reason or any other reason we have 10 or less families scheduled for care, we will close and it will be charged as a holiday.

The center typically does not close for snow days or fog delays. If you need additional care during school closings or delays, you must call the center before you bring your child to be sure we have space available. We will provide care for school-age children during these days on a first call, first serve basis.

If the center, for any reason, is without power, heat, or water, we will call you ASAP in the morning and let you know we will be closed for the day. You will not be charged for care if we close first thing in the morning. If we lose power, heat, or water, during the day, the decision to close will be made by the director, taking into account, first, the welfare of the children. You will be expected to pick up your child within a reasonable amount of time after you are called by our staff, and you will be charged for that day.
