If you’re looking for part-time childcare on a schedule that fits YOUR individual needs, our Custom Schedule Program is the solution! That’s because we let you create your very own schedule anytime Monday through Thursday and before 6PM on Friday and Saturday.
Custom Schedules are offered during Spring/Fall semesters, and may be renewed monthly. There is a 15 hour per week minimum schedule required to participate in the program, but those hours can be changed each month if needed.
Children will have the opportunity to participate in playful, intentional learning experiences while at our center.
This includes large and small group activities, teacher-directed and child-initiated activities as well as active and quiet activities.
We will also spend time outdoors every day, as weather permits, for large motor development.
Custom schedules are available anytime Monday through Thursday, and before 6PM on Friday and Saturday as long as the total number of hours per week is greater than or equal to 15. Any time children need to attend the center outside of scheduled hours can be accommodated with drop-in care. Sample schedule:
– Mondays: 8am – 11am
– Thursdays: 1pm – 6pm
– Fridays: 8am – 4pm
*Scheduled Hours Per Week = 16 hours
Children enrolled in a custom program are guaranteed a spot at their designated center on scheduled days until 1 hour after scheduled start time.
Families arriving more than 1 hour past the program start time on a scheduled day may be asked to wait for a spot to open up if the center is operating at capacity.
Tuition for Custom Schedules is calculated each month based on the number of scheduled days for that month and the number of scheduled hours for each of those days. Tuition is not charged for days that the center is closed. The rate for scheduled hours is $6.50/hour/child.
The “Member” drop-in rate will apply for any time a student attends the center outside of scheduled hours. There is no enrollment fee for non-preschool custom schedules.
Late pick-up fees only apply if picking up after the center’s regular closing time.
Program families are required to keep a current Tuition Express form on file. This form authorizes an automatic withdrawal of monthly tuition expenses from either a checking account or a credit card.
Tuition is billed on the 3rd Monday of every month for the next month’s tuition. Charges for Drop-In care will be billed separately to the card or account on file.
