You can choose to enroll your child in year round or semester care, along with full-time and part-time options.

Program Fees  Payment is for the time scheduled, regardless of child’s attendance. Refer to the HCDC Parent Handbook for additional information regarding enrollment.

Semester Reserved Care – Semester Reserved Care is for families looking to enroll only during that particular semester. For example, if you are attending or teaching courses at JCCC, you would be able to have child care for the same semester time that the classes are in session; Fall would be the first Monday of classes in August to the final Friday of classes in December. Spring and Summer semesters would follow the same template. **Semester Reserved Care Families do also have the opportunity to register their child(ren) for Interim Session; which is when the center is open between semester regular class periods. These Interim sessions require families to pre-register during select windows to provide planning and purchasing windows for the staff/kitchen. Families will be notified via email about the registration process when it is available.

With Semester Care, you DO need to reapply for each semester. For example, if you register your child for the Fall semester, you would then also apply for the Spring semester if you would wan to continue your child’s care. It is not guaranteed that your child will have care each additional semester.

Year-round Reserved Care - This program is offered year round, including semester and interim sessions, for a full week during the center’s open hours with a maximum attendance of 10 hours per day. Enrollment may occur at any time although re-enrollment takes place each fall semester.


Families may apply at any time as Hiersteiner has open enrollment; however enrollment does mainly follow the college’s schedule. For example, when the college starts enrolling for the Fall in April, we will also do the majority of fall offers in April to coincide with the college enrollment. Once classrooms are full, families that apply will go on the waiting list and be offered a spot once it becomes available via email. Applications are not valid until the non-refundable application fee has been paid. The application fee is waived for JCCC Students and $35 for Non-Student Families.

Placement decision will be made based on the order that paperwork and application fee are received and will also consider the family's current status in the following order:

  1. Returning HCDC Families or Siblings
  2. JCCC Students
  3. JCCC Faculty/Staff Families
  4. Non JCCC/Community Families


HCDC Application for Admission


Once it is determined that there is an opening for your child, you will receive an offer from HCDC via email. You will then be required to accept/decline your child’s offer and pay the refundable deposit. The refundable deposit is $400 for full time enrollees, $200 for part time enrollees (per child). This deposit will be refunded at the end of your child’s attendance provided the withdraw notice outlined in the Family Handbook is followed.

Once you accept your child’s offer, HCDC will then send you an acceptance letter, information on how to pay the deposit, along with a new child paperwork packet.
