   - Registration is currently prioritized for families requiring care 5 days per week. Completing the registration steps will commit you to paying 10 payments of the fees for the program. If you are registering for 5 days per week during the priority registration period (through May 16th), while you can cancel your registration completely (please review the policies), you are agreeing that you will not drop any days of service for at least 2 billing cycles.

However, please still submit your form at this time as families needing care less than 5 days will be prioritized based on submittal day and time.  

   - If you qualify for reduced lunch rates, you will pay 30% less than the full fee, and if you qualify for free lunch rates, you will pay 50% less than the full fee, but you are committing to the non-discount fees until you have submitted paperwork and been approved for a reduced rate. To apply for discounted fees please see the link below. Applications must be submitted at the time of registration or within 48 hours (about 2 days) of your registration.

   - Fall childcare will begin on Monday, August 22nd, and end June 7. Parents must find alternative arrangements for care during the first week of school and June 8 and 9.
