Center Enrollment

You can choose to enroll your child in reserved care, occasional care or a combination.

Reserved Care is used when you need a routine schedule for your child every week for a minimum of four consecutive weeks. You will pay for the program whether your child attends or not. Qualifications for using reserved care are provided in the HCDC Parent Handbook.

Extended Care is used when requesting time before or after your scheduled program or when requesting time only between the hours of 6:30 a.m. - 8 a.m. and/or 5 p.m. - 6:30 p.m.

Occasional Care is used when your schedule is irregular and sometimes unpredictable. The daily and part day rates are higher, and you are not guaranteed that there will be an opening for your child. You will pay for the time that you schedule. More information on occasional care is available in the HCDC Parent Handbook.

Semester Reserved Care: Three programs are offered Tuesday and Thursday; Monday, Wednesday, and Friday; or a full week during the following times:

  • Full-day program from 7:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.  
  • Morning part-day from 8 a.m. – Noon
  • Afternoon part-day from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.

You will need to enroll each semester you require our services. Sometime during the semester, notification of when applications are due for the following semester will be made. Unfortunately there is no guarantee that space will be available for everyone wishing to re-enroll. Names will be put into a lottery and space allotted based on the order drawn. More information on the lottery process for current and new families is available in the HCDC Parent Handbook.

Semester Reserved Care Fees: A non-refundable application fee is required each semester you enroll in semester  reserved care. Paying the application fee does not guarantee enrollment. Program fees are posted annually. More information is available in the HCDC Parent Handbook.

Year-round Reserved Care Enrollment: Year-round care is reserved for the center’s open hours with a maximum attendance of 10 hours per day every day the center is open. You may enroll at any time to begin year-round care if space is available but you will need to re-enroll each fall semester you require our services. More information on the year-round enrollment process is available in the HCDC Parent Handbook.

Year-round Reserved Care Fees: a non-refundable application fee is required each year you enroll in year-round reserved care. Paying the application fee does not guarantee enrollment. Fees are posted annually. More information is available in the HCDC Parent Handbook.
