Q: Do you have infant care?
A: No. We hope to offer infant care in the near future.

Q: Do you have a parents' association?
A: Yes. The Parent Advisory Committee consists of a faculty advisor, a board of elected parents, and the general parent membership. The Parent Club participates in fundraising, plans family outings, and organizes special events for the children.

Q: Can I enroll my child for just afternoons?
A: No. We offer full day programs only.

Q: How do you handle your waiting list?
A: There are two separate waiting lists. One list is for families who are eligible for subsidized child care services. This list is not first come first served.  The second list is for families without a need for subsidy. We organize this list by the age group of the children, and the date of the application.

Q: Is it possible to enroll my special needs child?
A: Yes, however we do not offer a special education program. Children with special needs are fully included into the appropriate classroom. Before enrolling a child with special needs, we hold several meetings with you to determine the correct placement for your child.

Q: May I visit my child in the center any time?
A: Yes, parents of our enrolled children are always welcome. If your child is not enrolled in our program, we ask that you sign up for a tour with one of our staff.

Q: Do I need to bring a lunch for my child?
A: No. The Center provides a catered breakfast, hot lunch, and an afternoon snack to all children while they are in attendance.

Q: May a visiting relative pick up my child?
A:
We must have written permission from you to release the child to someone else. The adult picking up the child must be at least 18 years old and provide us with a picture ID.

Q: I cannot find the answer to my question here. What should I do?
A: Please Contact Us. We will be happy to talk with you by phone or email about our Center.
