The Center is open for 41 weeks starting late August/early September to mid-June, from 7 a.m. – 5:15 p.m. A calendar outlining days off will be placed in family mailboxes at the start of the year.
Families must adhere to the schedule for which they have a written contract in the Student Account Services Office. If you would like to have your child attend on a day when he/she is not regularly scheduled, please make your request in writing to the Director at least 48-hours in advance. If the single adjustment is possible, every effort will be made to assist the family. (Note: We cannot give approval for extra days unless accounts are up-to-date and additional room coverage is available.)
Once a family has requested an extra day and that request has been approved, we will notify the Student Account Services office to bill for the extra day. If the child does not attend on the extra day, no credit will be given and the day must be paid for anyway. Extra days may not be exchanged for other days the child attends.
If a family needs to make a permanent change in enrollment, the request must be made at least one week in advance, in writing. Families will be notified if the schedule can be adjusted
IMPORTANT: Please make sure that we know where to contact you at all times while your child is at the Center. If you are not going to be at your usual number, please let the office know where we can reach you. If you are going to be out of town, please let us know who to contact in your place. All family members who are PSU students or faculty should be sure the office has an up-to-date copy of their class schedule. In addition, we need to know where you are when not in class. All families are asked to provide the names and phone numbers of at least two local people to call if the family cannot be reached; please keep this list up-to-date.
