Hours: Main Activities are 9am – 4pm
Extended Care includes 7am – 6pm (included in your fee)
Drop Off before 9am & Pick Up after 4pm ensures the easiest transitions and not missing the main fun! Extended care hours (plus healthy snacks) are ALWAYS included in your original program fee.
Entrances: When dropping off your children, enter through the main building door closest to the JK/SK Pen by the parking lot.
For pick up, enter THROUGH the JK/SK Pen. The doors you entered for the morning drop off will be locked. Please do not use the school’s main entrance. Children may NOT be dropped off for entrance on their own.
Check-in / check-out: All children must be checked in and out by their parent/guardian or a pre-authorized caregiver (recorded in your registration or given to our administration in advance in writing). All caregivers picking up will be asked to show us picture ID to confirm identity.
Parking: Please use one of the school’s parking spaces or street parking if it is allowed. Do not park, stop or idle beside the school or KG Pen entrance or in the bus / fire lanes as this is not permitted and creates a safety concern.

We start calling families at 9:30am for any child absent without notice, as per our safe arrival policy.
