Yes; you can contact the center (715-232-1478) to set up a time to come visit. Our observation booths are open throughout the day as well; you are welcome to come observe any classroom.
Applications are dated when they are submitted. If there are no available openings, the child's name is placed on a waiting list. If an opening occurs, families are contacted. Waiting lists are updated each semester; the application fee rolls over while the child is on the waiting list.
You will stay where you are on the waiting list and your application date will still apply; your application will rollover to the next age group if necessary.
There is a high demand for child care and we thrive on having a full program. To meet the needs of most families and fill the program, we are limited to the program options on the application.
No; children do not need to be potty trained and the teachers will work with families to meet the needs of each individual child to help them through the process and any problems that may arise.
Yes; we have an information management and security system in place. Parents and teachers are assigned a code to enter into the center. Visitors are able to ring the doorbell and someone will come to the door to greet them.
The observation booths are always open to parents, so you can stop in anytime to check on your child. We welcome your participation in the classroom; please arrange your visits with your child's teacher.
If your child has any special food concerns, you will need to fill out a form indicating the foods to avoid and foods that can be substituted. If the special food need is for a medical reason, you will need a physician to sign the form and the center will provide a food substitute. If the special food need is based on personal preference (vegetarian, organic, etc.), the form will need to be completed before we are able to withhold the foods to be avoided. Food substitutes based on personal preference will need to be provided by the family.

Weekly newsletters, block plans, and menus are shared with families through e-mail or printed form.
Information about your child's learning and development is shared in two conferences held in the fall and spring. Additional conferences may be arranged upon request.
