The initial schedule you are confirmed for, to start care at Moss Street, will be in effect for the entire academic year. Thus, we encourage you to initially ask for all the hours you may possibly need, so that you are covered for the subsequent term(s). You will, however, be able to request a schedule change for each upcoming term. Whether a schedule change request can be approved will depend upon staffing patterns and classroom space available, at the time of the request.

Littles, Middles, and Preschool

Moss Street offers two scheduling options, both for full-time care.

Our base schedule offered to all families is 8:15 a.m.–3:15 p.m., Monday through Friday, for a total of 35 hours of scheduled care per week.

There is also an extended care schedule that offers 38 hours of care per week and that schedule is 8:15 a.m.–4:00 p.m. on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays. Wednesdays are still the earlier pick-up time of 8:15 a.m.–3:15 p.m.

Parents choose the scheduling option they want at the time of enrollment and use those hours as best suits their family’s needs, though will still pay for the full cost even if they do not utilize all hours within that schedule.

Signing Your Child In and Out

When entering and leaving the center, you must sign your child in and out. A sign-in sheet is posted each day in or outside every classroom. Children must be signed in properly before Moss Street can assume responsibility for them.

Only those persons listed on the information and authorization form as having your permission will be allowed to remove your child from Moss Street Children’s Center. The adults on this list will be asked to show photo identification. Please notify the center if one of the people listed will pick up your child on a particular day.

Care During Unscheduled Hours

If your child enters or leaves a program at times other than these block times, billing will reflect the additional hours of care used. These charges will appear as "drop-in hours" on the monthly bill, but are charged at the same hourly rate, and will show on the month following their occurrence.

Holidays and Inclement Weather

Families are financially responsible for their confirmed schedule through finals week of a term. This includes scheduled hours that fall on an observed holiday, as well as during inclement weather closures and delays.

Withdrawing from Moss Street

If a family chooses to withdraw from Moss Street in the middle of a term, written notice is required 30 days in advance. Families are financially responsible for all scheduled care during those 30 days following the request for withdrawal.
