Afternoon Pickup Procedures

All cars will enter the property at the top driveway and exit at the lower driveway.

The pick-up procedure is strictly enforced and has been devised to ensure the safety of your child. The carpool line begins forming at 1:15 each afternoon. We will begin taking children to cars promptly at 1:30 with a goal of being finished at 1:45 daily. A teacher will walk your child to the car. You will be asked to properly secure your child into his/her car seat.

Virginia law requires that all children under the age of 8 be restrained in a child safety seat that meets federal law. Children will not be released to you if you do not have a car seat. Not complying with this procedure could be cause for termination from the program.

Late Fee Policy

We try hard to finish on time, and the children expect to be picked up on time. Not only do the teachers have a lot to do at the end of the day, but your child becomes worried, no matter how hard we try to comfort him or her. Unfortunately there are people who are frequently late because they apparently try to squeeze in “one more thing”. The late fee rate is as follows:
After 1:45 PM – $1.00 per minute

Please abide by our scheduled hours of 9:30 AM – 1:30 PM. Continual late pick-up will be grounds for requesting removal of your child from the program. IF THIS OCCURS YOU WILL NOT BE REIMBURSED FOR ANY PART OF THE MONTH’S TUITION.

Please remember that in your child’s eyes, being late picking them up is very serious and scares them. Please plan to arrive on time and remember we live in a very congested area.
