Yes. They vary every year. We really try and accommodate those that need before/after care therefore you would have to call and find out if we transport to your child’s school, or if we can add that particular school to one of our pick up routes.

What if we need to leave on vacation?

Tuition is still remitted in full every week of the year. Each family is allotted 1 week of vacation without paying tuition. We ask that families give management a two week advance notice to apply the vacation. Otherwise, student’s pay tuition every week regardless of attendance. Unconventional schedules and special arrangements can be exceptional and may be made personally with the director.

Can we bring in the physical and shot record I have been keeping at home?

No. The physical and shot record must be recorded and signed by the doctor on the form provided. No out of state forms, or alternate forms can be accepted.

What is the school’s inclement weather policy?

We use the Federal Government guidelines for closing the schools as a guideline and assess from our own standpoint..The status of the Federal Government can be viewed at www.opm.gov, however, the center’s official status will be determined by 10 p.m. the night before, in most cases, and will be displayed on our website. We will also leave a voicemail message that reflects any change in the center’s status. You can check for closings on Dawning Point’s facebook page, or contact your child’s teacher/director.
