Late Pick-up Policy

Late pick up is very difficult on children. As children see their classmates leaving, they are expecting to be picked up also.

All children are to be picked up according to their contract hours. Parents will be warned if picking up their child after their contracted hours. No child(ren) are to be picked up after closing time. ALL Parents with longer contract hours are to be at the center at least 10–15 minutes prior to the actual closing time. This allows appropriate time for goodbyes, clean-up, and also for the staff to leave at their designated time. Staff may have commitments of their own and late pick-up of children will make them late for personal obligations. We realize that occasionally there are emergency circumstances that prevent parents from arriving on time. Please make other arrangements or call us, so we can reassure your child that you or another individual are the way.

After the third late pick-up or one exceptionally long late pick-up, a family will be asked to meet with the director. Please note: excessive late pick-ups can be considered a form of neglect. We reserve the right to contact local authorities after 15 minutes of closing time, if we have not had any contact with the parent and/or designated pick-up person. There must be an authorized pick-up person/phone numbers on child’s emergency form at all times. Excessive or extreme lateness may result in a termination of child-care services.

Fees will be determined according to the California Department of Education fee schedule and family must be at or below the State/CDE income guidelines to qualify for free child development services.

Families not eligible for complete (free) subsidy will pay on a sliding scale a fraction of cost based upon the Department of Education-Family Fee Schedule. This pre-determined amount is based upon the family income and # of persons in the family. There are no adjustments made for excused or unexcused absences. Families above the income guidelines will be calculated according to the current CDE daily reimbursement rate.

There are no fees for:

  • At risk children-certified by a legal qualified profession or CPS worker
