Frequently Asked Questions
As we receive questions, we'll add them here so you can see what other parents have been asking and get some more info.
Do you supply lunch?
We offer breakfast, a cooked lunch and afternoon snack. We provide all drinks and children have access to chilled water at all times.
Do you take children with autism?
We assess children with disorders on the Autistic Spectrum individually and accept for admission to the center on a case by case basis.
My son has just completed chemotherapy and is immunocompromised. Will there be any children there who are not vaccinated?
No. Due to the fragile nature of some of the children's illnesses, we do not accept the state waiver form.
What is your staffing ratio for medically compromised babies?
State regulations for the staffing of 6 weeks to 16 months are 4:1 ( 4 babies to one staff member). Babies with complicated medical needs are staffed at 2:1.
Michelle Obama made changes for daycare centers. Will you include these?
Through the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act championed by the former first lady and signed by President Obama, USDA made the first major changes in school meals in 15 years, which will help us raise a healthier generation of children.
Do you provide formula for babies?
No. Baby formula should be provided by the parents and we will store it in a labeled box. Diapers, wipes and and diaper rash cream (if used) should also be provided.
Is there any cost to join the wait list or to enroll my child?
The registration fee and deposit will hold your place for your chosen week. Your first weeks fees will be due on or before 5pm on the Friday prior to your child starting. We encourage parents to enroll early as there are limited places.
Do you accept children for before and after school and on snow days?
Yes we do, providing we have the space available. Before and after school care is available at the same rate as part time care or a half day. We can accommodate children for snow days providing we have the space available and it is charged as a full day.
Before we accept your child for care in any capacity, we must have a registration packet completed and on file. This is a state regulation.
Why do you ask for a deposit in addition to the first week's fees?
When a child is enrolled for care, we ask for a registration fee of $125.00, which is a one time, non-refundable payment. This covers the paperwork processing and manpower hours utilized to build your child's file and prepare a place at the center. The deposit is a payment equal to 1 weeks tuition which is held and can be used to pay your final weeks tuition payment.
The first weeks fees are due by 5pm on the Friday before the Monday on which care will begin.
