Tuition is due prior to care given or at the end of a "drop in" day. Each Monday is preferred, unless other arrangements have been made. Children are to be picked up by 5 p.m. (or earlier for drop-in). If your child is picked up late, there will a $10 fee charge for every 10 minutes late. Please call if there is any emergency.
Absenteeism: If your child is ill, it is assumed that he/she will not be attending school and therefore not attending after school care. Illness includes, but is not limited to: fevers, diarrhea, and vomiting, bad colds/coughs. We ask that children that have had a fever stay out of after care until he/she has been fever-free for 24 hours. Please call before 12:15pm if your child will not be at after school care because of illness or other reason. There is no reduction in tuition fees for absences. Your child’s place is reserved for him/her.
Entry/Exit: Please always sign your child out when picking up.
We are excited to care for your child/children! As a team, we can provide them with a wonderful place to spend their afternoons.
Rob Lauderdale, Owner/Director
