Sunscreen; Sunscreen must be provided by the family.  Our license mandates that we can only apply sunscreen that has been provided by the family.

Clothing; Warm clothing, including a sweatshirt or jacket must be provided by the family.  Sometimes the weather can turn cool, so please make sure your child has clothing that can be layered.

Tennis Shoes and Socks; We play in the gym and outdoors daily.  No Flip Flops please.  Sandals are permissible as long as they have a strap around the back.

Water Bottle; The family must provide a water bottle for their children that will be used daily.

Swim Suit/Towel; Children need a towel and swim suit or complete change of clothes to play in the water.  A change of shoes into flip flops, water shoes, or crocks are recommended for this time as well.  Fridays are designated Water Days, but our staff will determine when the weather is suitable for this activity.

Child Conduct; All children are expected to be civil and respectful to other children and daycare staff.  Any violation of this expected conduct could result in having a child immediately picked up by parents or even removal from the program.  Children are encouraged to notify a staff person if they experience any mistreatment by other children.

Behavior; We have a zero tolerance policy for physical & disrespectful behavior toward staff or peers.  If these behaviors arise you will be contacted and expected to pick up your child immediately.

Financial Overview

Registration Fee; $50/child (non-refundable and must accompany enrollment form).

Classroom Options
Options M thru F; Half Days = 6:30 am to 12:00 noon (cost $20/day) or Full Days = 6:30 am to 5:30 pm (cost $33/day or $150/week).

Families must commit to a weekly schedule.  Minimum enrollment is 2 half days per week (min. commitment) and the days need to be the same each week.  Families will be invoiced for the minimum commitment weekly regardless of attendance.  Families will be given Free Days (FD) equivalent to their minimum commitment to be used when absences take place.  For example, if a family has a minimum commitment of 3 full days per week, they will receive 3 Free Days for the summer.  If the family would take a vacation where they would miss a week, they can use the Free Days so they will not be charged for that week.  Families can add days with prior notice and additional fees will be added to invoice.  Field trip/Activity fees will be added as they take place on a weekly basis.

Families will be invoiced on a weekly basis starting after the first week of daycare. Payment is expected upon receipt of the invoice by cash, check or credit card (a 3% charge will be added to credit card transactions). Current LCA families whose children are attending school may opt to have their parent accounts billed on a weekly basis. Unpaid balances will incur a 1.5% late fee charged and compounded monthly. A $20.00 fee will be assessed for all NSF returned checks or NSF refused automatic deductions. Children will be prevented from attending daycare if unpaid invoices exceed two weeks.
