Here are some important points we do not want you to miss: : 1. We do not credit your account for illness. We do appreciate you letting the classroom teacher or Kids Club site know if your child will not be attending; however, we cannot credit your account. If your child will be out for an extended period of time please contact our office to discuss your situation. 2. We do not credit your account for vacations taken by your family during your regular schedule. Your payment secures your child’s spot. 3. There will not be credits for weather or building issues. 4. Please remember you must have a REGULAR weekly schedule that is consistent. Every other week or a “rotating schedule” does not work for our system. 5. You may EXIT the program but you will need to give us a ONE WEEK written notice (previously two). Please contact the billing secretary at
