Does my child have to come every day?
No, we do not require children come every day as they may have other obligations and activities but payments are not adjusted for days missed as spots are limited, and payments solidify your child's seat in our program.
Do you pick up on half days?
We do not pick children up on half days from school. In the event that your child has a half day in school they are more than welcome to still attend after care on those days, but parents would be responsible for drop off to the program site and we can and will provide transportation home on said days if applicable.
