2019 Daycare Vacation and Holiday Schedule

            No tuition is charged to parents when I am on vacation.  Parents are also not charged tuition for one week of their vacation each year ONLY IF you have given me at least one month's prior notification of when you will be gone.  Many parents desiring more vacation time choose to schedule time off from their jobs during my vacation when the daycare is closed.  If you desire additional time off at a different time of year, you will need to pay tuition for your additional vacation time.  I will also give you at least one month's prior notification before my vacation but typically, you will receive the vacation and holiday schedule in January for the entire year.

            The daycare is closed for the following eight holidays or their observed days:

New Year's Day, Memorial Day, Fourth of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, the Friday after Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve Day, and Christmas Day.  These are considered paid holidays.  Although I usually do not need them, I may take up to two paid personal days off per year for family emergencies, funerals, serious illnesses, etc. and will try to give you as much prior notification as possible.  The list of the dates the daycare is expected to be closed during the year is given to parents in January and is listed on the daycare's website,

School-Friendly Vacation Policy

Parents who are students or school staff can choose to follow the same vacation policies as those set for the rest of the daycare's families--one week of tuition-free vacation time off on the dates of their choice with one month's prior notice.  However, in consideration of the many days that schools are closed, an alternative vacation policy is available to the families at the daycare who would prefer to use a school-friendly schedule.

The school-friendly alternative policy is as follows:

One week of vacation at Christmas--the week between Christmas and New Year's Day.  The dates that the daycare will be closed each particular year will be on the daycare's vacation and holiday schedule for that year.  If any holiday dates are included within the week the daycare is closed, the holidays are considered paid holidays.  

One week of tuition-free vacation during spring break--whatever dates are observed by your school.

Tuition-free summers off of daycare--typically running from mid-June to mid-August with dates depending on the calendar for that year.  A part-time schedule may be possilbe if space allows.

Your child's spot at the daycare held for you for the fall with no charge or deposit.

Tuition to be paid for holidays only during the times of the year your child is present at the daycare.

Tuition to be paid for days your child is sick if normally scheduled to be present in childcare.

No additional week of tuition-free vacation at dates of your choice.

Often, the daycare is scheduled to be closed on non-school days like MEA, Presidents' Day, or Martin Luther King Day and if that happens to be the daycare's schedule for that year, you would have those non-school days off with no tuition charged as well.
