Hours of Operation

Monday - Friday
6:15 – 8:50 a.m.
3:50 – 6:00 p.m.  
Childcare does not operate on vacation days.  We are open at our regular time (6:15 a.m.) on fog or snow delay days. We are open during days closed due to weather, unless otherwise posted along with the school closing.
Shuttle-bus transportation is available to and from McFall and Page Elementary for both before and after school sessions, however we have a one-drop policy and childcare would count as your one-drop.
