Hours of Operation

Hours of operation are from 7:15 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. The center follows the holiday schedule for classified university personnel. These holidays vary year to year.

Arrival time is 7:15 a.m. to 9:00 a.m., and departure time is 2:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. Children will benefit most from the educational aspects of the program if they arrive by 9:00 a.m. Lunch is served between 11:00 and 11:30. Rest time takes place between noon and 2:30. Please do not bring your child to the center between 11:00 and 2:30, because this will make separation from you more difficult and is disruptive to the rest of the class.

Parents are asked not to bring children after 9:00 a.m. except in the event of a doctor’s appointment, an emergency, or a special family occasion. When this occurs, please call before bringing your child after 9:00 to allow center staff to plan for your child’s attendance.

Unscheduled Closings

The center is closed when the university is closed due to inclement weather or announcements from the administration. Parents need to pick-up children within 30 minutes of the announced closure times to avoid late pickup fees.
