HOURS OF OPERATION
The center is operational from 6:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.
These hours are subject to change and exceptions. Holidays and Snow Days are examples of days when the Center’s hours may be adjusted or when the center may be closed altogether. Although the Center is actually open 11 ½ hours per day, NO CHILD’S PRESENCE AT THE CENTER MAY EXCEED TEN HOURS IN ONE DAY. There will be no exceptions for this rule unless it is an emergency and has been pre-approved by the Director. If a child is in our care over ten hours the family will be charged $1.00 per minute. If this occurs more than once, your services are subject to termination.
Official Center Holidays are:
New Year’s Day (another day maybe added depending on how the Holiday falls)
The Day After Thanksgiving
The day before or after Christmas
The center will be closed on the above days. If one of the above holidays falls on a weekend, the holiday will be observed on the closest business day. For example, if Independence Day falls on a Saturday, the Center will be closed on Friday. Likewise, if Independence Day falls on Sunday, the Center will be closed on Monday.
WE WILL NOT give credit on any tuition days the center is closed. Parents are still responsible for payments on holidays and inclement weather days.
The Center will be open for all other holidays. However, the Center reserves the right to close on any day for which there is not substantial need for care. Should this occur on a holiday that is not listed above, parents are responsible for payment and tuition credit will not be given.
There will be times when, due to severe weather, the Center’s opening maybe delayed, or the Center may need to close early or entirely. We follow the Berkeley County Protocol for all inclement weather.
