In the case of inclement weather, such as heavy snow or icy roads, we post our closings on the FOX 5 new & website.

Please note that full tuition will still be due if the center is closed or opened late due to inclement weather.
Will you help my child with potty training / toilet training?
Yes. Once a child is developmentally ready to begin and shows interest we will start the process of toilet training. We feel that it takes a partnership between the staff, parents and children to have a successful, positive toilet training experience. Patience and positive support will be given to children and their parents as they go through this learning experience together.
