Mother's Day Out

Our Handbook

School Hours

9:00AM – 3:00PM with extended play at 5:30PM, Monday-Friday. The classrooms will be ready by 8:55AM but not any earlier. You must pick up your child no later than the scheduled pick up time. There is a late fee of $10 that will be applied 10 minutes after scheduled pick up time and an additional $2 per minute after.

Arriving & Departing

Only parents and authorized adults are allowed to pick up the children. You must sign them in and out each school day. If another adult will be picking up your child, please let the director know ahead of time. All authorized adults will be required to show their driver’s license.

Emergency Information

An “Authorization for Emergency Medical Attention Agreement” must be on file for your child to attend our program. The hospital and physician requires this form before emergency treatment can be rendered. If your child requires emergency medical treatment, an ambulance will be called and your child will be taken to the hospital recommended by the E.M.T. services. All costs are the responsibility of the parent.

Registration Fee

The registration fee is $75 for the school year. This is a one-time fee per program and is non-refundable nor can it be applied to the monthly tuition. Yearly supplies such as curriculum and special project supplies are purchased with this fee. It will also secure your child’s placement for the coming program.

Tuition

Tuition will be $400 a month with additional cost added with each additional hour up to 5:30pm (please see price list). Tuition is due on the first school day each month. If tuition is received 10 days after the due date a $15 late fee will incur. MDO salaries and additional expenses cannot be reduced because of absenteeism. Therefore, we must charge regardless of attendance in order to support the enrollment space for your child. We hope you understand the need for financial stability and we greatly appreciate your support and cooperation.

Sickness Policy

Upon recommendation of the Committee on Control of Infectious Diseases of the American Academy of Pediatrics, a child should not attend a classroom setting when the following exists:
