We can keep your child in care as long as we have space. Please call or email if you will be running late whenever possible. Please allow a cushion of time for offsite appointments.

In order to maintain our child to staff ratios and stay affordable, all bookings are on the hour. You are welcome to come after the hour, but you are charged starting from the beginning of an hour through to the end of an hour. For example, if you drop off at 9:15am and pick up at 11:30, you will be charged for 9am – 12pm or 3 hours.
What if childcare is full when I need it?
We will not accept additional children when we are full which is why we encourage you to book your space as soon as you know you need it. We will accommodate you whenever possible.
What if I need to cancel?
There is a 100% cancellation fee for canceling after 6pm the night before the reservation. This allows us to keep rates low by ensuring that we don't turn away customers that may want the space you reserved. Please contact us right away if you need to cancel, we may be able to fill your spot and waive the fee.

What's the best time to drop-in?
What time of days tend to be the slowest? What’s my best chance for a last minute reservation? Each day is busy.
