"My husband and I feel blessed that not only are our children taken care of splendidly, but they are thoroughly encouraged to learn and explore the world around them." ~Erin
Child Care Schedules
Since it is vital that the highest quality of care is available at all times, careful scheduling maintains licensing ratios while providing the flexible options that your busy family needs.
Scheduling Child Care
In order to maintain licensing ratios it is vital that all child care schedules are approved ahead of time. No child may be enrolled for less than one hour a day or in care for more than 10 hours per day. If a contracted child care schedule needs to be changed, a new contract must be completed, signed, and on file before the new child care schedule can go into effect.
Full Time Child Care Schedule
Full time care consists of twenty-five or more hours per week; four or more days per week. Contracting a full time child care schedule guarantees that Amy & Kids Co. has a space reserved exclusively for your child during all open hours. Full time spaces are guaranteed long-term.
Part Time Child Care Schedule
Part time child care schedules consist of less than twenty-five hours per week. Contracting for part time care guarantees a space for your child during contracted hours only. Part time spaces are not guaranteed long-term; in the event that a full time space is needed you will be given the option to switch to full time care.
Half Day Child Care Schedule
Half day child care schedules consist of less than twenty-five hours per week in the morning (7:00 a.m. - Noon) or afternoon (Noon - 5:00 p.m.), and do not include lunch. Due to ratio requirements, half day schedules may not cross 12 Noon; schedules that cross 12 Noon are considered full time care regardless of the actual number of hours attended. Contracting for half day care guarantees a space for your child during contracted hours only; in the event that a full time or full day position is needed you will be given the option to switch to a full time or full day schedule.
School Age Child Care Schedule
School age child care schedules consist of no more than 3 hours total per day and are available for children five years old and up while enrolled in and attending school. School age openings are available on a limited basis depending on group size and are not guaranteed long-term. A minimum of one hour per scheduled day is required for school age schedules.
