Hours: 7:30 am – 5:30 pm  Monday – Friday.

Closures: New Year’s Day, July 4th, Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve and Christmas 

Childcare is available from 7:30 a.m. until 5:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, year-round except New Years Day, July 4th, Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve and Christmas.  No credit will be given for these closed days. Childcare hours may be adjusted if the staff feels it is necessary to do so, based on need.  Two weeks’ (10 days) vacation or “best interest days” may be taken during the year.  It is the parent’s responsibility to request vacation credit, which will be applied the following month. A credit of 5% of the monthly bill per day missed, up to the 10 days will be taken during the year.  Vacation days do not accumulate from one year to the next.  If a child does not take vacation, tuition will remain at a constant rate.  Children must bring their own lunches.  Toddlers must provide their own diapers.

The rates above are for our 12-month program.  It includes vacation periods when the rest of school is not in session, such as winter and spring break, conference days, in-service days, snow days (when it is possible to open), etc. and all summer.  Legal holidays, which are usually 3 day weekends, are excluded.  Please refer to the yearly calendar.  The school reserves the right to close for specified vacation periods, with advance notice, during which parents will be given tuition credit.  Students enrolled 2, 3, or 4 days must use the time clock and pay on an hourly basis for additional days beyond their scheduled days

State Preschool Program has its own schedule.  State Preschool follows the Lake Tahoe Unified School District.  See State Preschool Schedule.
