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 needing low-income subsidy. It is organized by need. The second list is for families without a need for subsidy. We organize this list by the age group of the children, household income, 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.
