Semester Break Care

However, we will still provide care for ages 6 weeks-5years.  Priority is given to families who are enrolled in the Early Head Start program, then to students.  Staff/Faculty may utilize this service depending on availability.  Parents must pay their regular hourly rate for the hours that they request. Once the break care application is completed, parents are contracted to pay for the hours they requested.  We offer care during the following breaks: 

  • Spring Break
  • Spring to Summer Break
  • Summer to Fall Break
  • Fall Break
