When do I register my child?
Registration begins June 1st, 2016.  You can register your child at any time on or after this date.  Registrations are accepted on a first come first serve basis.  We do have a license capacity that cannot be exceeded.  Children that we are unable to accommodate will be placed on a waiting list.

What if I only need childcare occasionally?
While it is helpful to have a set schedule, part time options are available. The program will allow part time occasional use.  However, the Director must be contacted in advance to make sure that space is available that day and the enrollment form has been fully completed.

Can my child go to another after school program such as tutoring, Brownies, O.M., Good News Club, etc., and still come to the Cardinal Club after these programs?
Yes.  When their after school program ends for that day the child may come to Cardinal Club. For example, if their program ends at 4:15 the child may then check into the Cardinal Club until 6:00.
