Child Development Center at Taft
Arrival and Departure

The center is open Monday through Friday, from 7:30 AM to 5:30 PM. When you enroll your child in the program you will be asked to sign up for the hours that you will need.  We ask you to please adhere to the hours that you are contracted for upon enrollment.


If you are leaving your car in the Taft parking lot we ask that you leave the parking spots nearest to the front door open for the centers staff in case of an emergency.  We ask that parents please bring their children directly inside the building, hanging up outdoor clothing and placing lunch boxes in their designated areas.  At this time parents are encouraged to share any information relevant to their child’s care with the staff.


Parents must sign in the time of their child’s arrival and the time of departure on the classroom attendance sheet daily. Any changes in routine should be noted in the “comments” column (where parent can be reached, different adult picking up, etc.). In the event that changes occur during the day, please call the center and leave a message with the staff.


The center closes promptly at 5:30PM. We ask that parents pick up no later than this time. If for any reason you will be delayed, please call the staff to let them know.  There is a late fee for parents that are late picking up their children.  While we understand that emergencies do occur, continued tardiness may necessitate that a child be withdrawn form our facility.
