Other Information

Parents are responsible for contracted child care fees, regardless of child's attendance. The weekly fee is prorated if the days the University is closed affect the child's attendance.

The contracted child care fee will not be enforced for students and faculty when classes are not in session, unless these clients choose to enroll their child/children during the class recesses.

In the event that a child is not picked up by closing, a late fee of $1.00 per minute per child will be charged. Parents of children who are not not picked up at or before 5:00 p.m. will be assessed a late fee.

Parents whose children are enrolled full time (5+ hours/day 5 days/week) throughout the year, may take (1) vacation week per year for which no fees will be assessed. Vacation week must be taken as five consecutive days.

The center is closed the following days/dates: 
Good Friday, Memorial Day, Fourth of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day and the following Friday; and Winter Recess, to be announced (Winter Recess occurs during the Christmas/New Year holiday season). The center does not provide child care services on the Thursday and Friday in August before the start of fall semester classes, in order to facilitate staff training and new student worker orientation.
