Late Pick Up Policy

All children are to be picked up BEFORE the 6:00 p.m. closing time.  If a child remains in attendance after 6:00 p.m., the following steps will be taken:

  • Two staff members will remain at the program with the child.
  • A staff member will attempt to contact the parent(s) and/or other person(s) authorized to care for the child as indicated on the Emergency Card submitted to the program upon registration.
  • A late fee of $1.00 for each minute that the child remains at the program after 6:00 p.m. will be charged to the parent or guardian.  A child will not be readmitted to the program if the late fee is not paid within one week.  The program may refuse to provide services to any child who is picked up late four times within one school year.
  • A staff member shall contact the Director or Director’s designee.
  • If after one hour (7:00 p.m.) a child has not been picked up, a staff member will call the DYFS 24-hour Child Abuse Hotline (1-800-792-8610) to seek assistance.
