- Before-School Care opens at 6:00 a.m. Due to staffing requirements, parents may not drop off children prior to that time.
- Children must be picked up by 6 p.m. Fees will apply for children not picked up by 6 p.m.
- Names must be marked on all personal items. Twisters is NOT responsible for lost, broken or stolen items.
- In an effort to better suit children during activities and playtime, some activities may require us to divide children by age group. Siblings who would like to stay together would go with the younger of the two groups.
- Before-School Care is $35/week. After-school care is $50/week. Collaboration-day only care is $25/week. Those needing all of the above will pay a total of $70/week per child. Parents selecting “Combo Care” may add $10/week for a tumbling, ninja or gymnastics class provided that they are enrolled monthly. This is a $10 discount off the normal class price.
- Discounts will not be given for missed days due to illness or vacation.
- Care is not included for Federal Holidays or days that school is out. Additional care may be provided on those days through Twisters for an additional fee. Parents will not be charged for care over winter break or spring break when there are no school days within the week.
- A 14-day notice is required in order to cancel before/after school care.
- Automatic charges will occur at approximately 7 a.m. the Friday morning prior to the start of the next week.
- Example: If you are enrolled for the week of Aug. 31st, your weekly fee will be automatically charged to the card on file the morning of Aug. 28th.
- Parents will be notified by noon if the card on file is unable to be charged. In order to reserve the child’s spot for the following week, payment will need to be completed by 5 p.m. the Friday prior to the start of the week.
- Payments must be up to date in order for a child to participate.
- For weekly payments, cash or card on file is accepted. Cash must be paid by close of business on Thursday so your card is not automatically charged.
