Your Child Care Schedule
Families may enroll for a fixed, weekly schedule of care anywhere from twice a week to full time. Flexible scheduling (where parents submit and pre-pay a new schedule each week or each month) is available for an additional administrative fee. All enrolled families with accounts in good standing may use occasional drop-in privileges for sessions not on their regular schedule at a slightly higher per session cost.
School Age Child Care follows the AAPS district calendar, and child care is closed on non-school days. The following calendar shows closures and fall enrollment deadlines at a glance. (Note: the 2017-18 school calendar is not yet determined.)
