When enrolling your child, the parent(s) or guardian(s) will sign a daycare provision agreement. This agreement will state weekly tuition fees, days attending, and pick-up and drop-off times as well as emergency contacts. It is also very important that we have current phone numbers in case your child becomes ill while in our care.

A first week deposit as well as registration are due at the time of enrollment to secure a spot in our program. Other forms such as our registration checklist, medical statement, napping agreement will need to be filled out.
