Our Flexible Scheduling
We are open year round Monday through Friday 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., with 8:00 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. available by special arrangement.
We are closed New Year's Day, President's Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving and the day after, the last two weeks of December, and usually two days for staff development. The exact dates of closing are announced at least one month in advance.
One of the key differences between Children's Corner and other preschools is flexible scheduling.
Contracts are available for M,W,F or Tu & Th morning or afternoon blocks. Blocks are 8:30 - 12:30, 12:30 - 3:30, 12:30 - 5:30 and 3:30 - 5:30. The maximum is three full days per week, 5 days 8:30 - 3:30, or the equivalent in part days. We also offer a limited number of full-time spaces in each room. Unused contract days may be bought, sold or donated to any interested Children's Corner members on our "Time for Sale" Yahoo Group.
As an additional service to parents, we offer a drop-in option. Parents may extend contract time occasionally or use drop-in on days not in their contracts, but you should be aware that children who attend Children's Corner irregularly or infrequently might have difficulty feeling comfortable here. This is not usually a problem when drop-in is added to contract use, or when the child attends on a regular basis (two to three times a week), but some children do find it more difficult to come on days other than their accustomed days.
