Thank you to all of you that have made our childcare center successful.

Please remember to sign in and out on the clipboards. This is required for each and every family in addition to clocking in and out on our computer system. Parents should help us maintain a secure facility by having any and all parents clock in and out at the front desk to assure they are authorized to be in the building. If you are unsure, please find someone at the front desk to help any guests that may arrive. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
Remember that we are required to take the children (except for extreme weather) out every day by the WAC. Please make sure to bring labeled weather appropriate clothing (jackets, gloves, and shoes). You may be asked to bring them in the middle of the day if your child does not come to the center with them in the morning.
