Lunch Bunch Registration Fee


We do not provide drop-in care, due to our Child Care license. We require set schedules per week. Because your child’s place is being reserved and aides hired accordingly, refunds or credits cannot be given when your child is absent due to illness, change of schedule, etc. For extended Preschool Child Care, you will still be charged whether your child attends or not. K-8 After School Care students, if your child does not attend on a scheduled day, you will be charged a fee of one hour. If you end up needing extra days, check with the director. If there is space available, we will be glad to accommodate
