Daily attendance at the Center is not required, as these early years are the only time in your child’s life when you can dictate their school schedule. Our earliest drop-off time is 8:00am and we ask that you try to pick your child up by 5:45pm so you have time to speak with your child’s teachers about their day and leave the Center no later than 6:00pm.

    • This typically happens in March or April, and the early closure will happen at 12:00 noon. The date will be announced by the end of the fall semester each year, so you are able to plan accordingly.
  • Inclement Weather
    • In the case of inclement weather, the Center will follow Boston University closures or delayed openings.
    • When the University has a delayed opening, Center staff will make their best effort to arrive on time to staff the classrooms to meet EEC licensing requirements. However, if it is taking longer than expected for staff to arrive at the Center due to the inclement weather, you may be asked to remain with your child until enough staff have arrived to meet licensing requirements.
