We are a quaint little center (situated on a lovely campus bordering the Herronton Woods) with a maximum occupancy of only 36 children. We think it's our small number of children, affordable rates and commitment to getting to know your individual needs that keep us going strong!

Depending on the plan you choose, child care is as little as $4.55 per hour with Complimentary Hot Lunch 
and Diapering Supplies!

Parents choose from the following options:

OPTION A 
Drop-In Rate:  $12/hour (Most Expensive, Best For Emergencies or Short Durations Like Spontaneously Sneaking Off to the Gym or Salon) Just as the name implies, this is a service we offer (where space permits) that allows parents to drop their child off with little or no notice.  Prior registration is required utilizing our SignUpGenuis (links can be found on the front page of this website).  This is a super feature of our program for nanny or au pair back up, or just getting away for a spontaneous hour here and there to run to the salon or gym!  3 hour minimum per visit required. Diapering supplies are complimentary as well as Hot Lunch when child is present during lunchtime.

Drop-Ins are permitted on a first-come, first-served basis and are subject to space availability. RESERVATION MAY BE CANCELLED, BUT MUST BE DONE AT LEAST 24 HOURS PRIOR TO RESERVED DAY TO AVOID CHARGES. CANCEL BY ENTERING SIGN-UP-GENIUS AND "EDITING" YOUR SCHEDULE, THEN DELETE.

* Before- and After-Care can be added on as-needed at $6/hour with an existing schedule & will be automatically billed where times exceed that of parent-designed schedule.


Friendly, Flexible Terms:
1.  Scheduling & billing terms must be identified at sign-up (parents must choose an hourly, weekly or monthly schedule and provide the email address where the online invoice should go).
2.  Parents may initiate a change to scheduling or billing terms any time with a Schedule Change Form and two weeks' notice.
3.  There is no contract other than satisfying the current duration of scheduling (1 day, week or month, depending on the terms selected).
4.  Family vacation and other extended leaves of absence are accommodated and not billed with two weeks' notice and a Schedule Change Form.
5.  Absent days reported 24 hours in advance within a Weekly Rate are not billed (or are credited back if already paid) as long as they do not exceed 20% of your child's weekly schedule, or the equivalent of 1 day per week.  When absenteeism exceeds 20%, you may still avoid charges for days that your child was not at school, but you might fall into the next higher pricing tier.  For example, one day missed in a week would equate to paying 4/5 of the weekly rate; however, two days missed would result in paying three days at the day rate.



Parents, when designing your child's schedule, please keep in mind that the academic component of our day occurs between 8:30 am and concludes at 11:30 am with the washing of hands for lunch.  For those families signing up for just the PRESCHOOL EXPERIENCE, 8:30 am - 11:30 am are the hours you don't want to miss, and hopefully your child will stay for Hot Lunch (a nutritious, convenient and wonderful socialization opportunity for your child)!
