Q. Do you have a late fee policy?

A. Our program does have a late fee policy. If a parent is late to pick up their child, we charge $1.00 every minute that they are late. It is important to the child that they be picked up at the same time as their friends.

 

Q. Do you have web cams?

A. We do have web cams. Once the appropriate paperwork is filled out and sent in to our technology department, you will be given a code that allows you to access your child's classroom. Everyone who fills out the paperwork will be checked on the sex offender web-site, so that we can maintain a safe environment for your child. We are one of a few centers in the county to have this. It is just one more cool thing that the Child Development Center offers you.
