We enroll children from birth to eleven years of age. Infants and Toddlers two and under must attend full time. Children over three pay for what they are scheduled regardless of attendance. The minimum schedule allowed is two full days. We accept children who are not potty trained and will work with you as a team when you and your child are ready to start potty training.

Parents are required to provide diapers, formula (we provide parents choice formula), two changes of clothing, and a nap mat with an attached blanket or sleeping bag for those sleeping on cots. Infants are not allowed anything in their crib except for a commercially manufactured sleep sack or swaddle. Infants can only sleep in their cribs on their back unless a Doctor’s note says otherwise.

Enrollment Procedures

All paperwork must be turned in (the Medical Exam must be returned within two weeks) before a child can start care. Payments are paid for the following week/s of care. You can set up payments for weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly.

Don’t need care right away, then a pre-register and a deposit are all you need to hold a place for your child in the near future. A non-refundable deposit for a week of care is required.

Financial Aid is available for those who qualify through the *Missouri Department of Social Services.
