    We ask that children arrive at the center no later than 9:00 AM to ensure they fully benefit from the program, but also for staffing ratio purposes. We understand that occasional conflicts may occur (medical appointments, transportation difficulties, etc.). When these do occur, it is the responsibility of the parent/guardian to call the Center before 9:00 AM to inform the staff of a child’s late arrival or absence.
