WHO ARE OUR STAFF?
Work Family Connection staff are highly trained professional child care staff. A great majority of our teachers hold BA degrees or are currently in school for education, social work, psychology and other related fields. All employees must undergo fingerprinting criminal background checks, physical exams, TB testing, reference checks, alien/US citizen verification, and conviction statements. Many of our staff hold a current certification in CPR and First Aid.
A drop-in registration allows your child to attend the Program on an occasional basis. All drop-in students must be registered, and notification must be given in advance by calling the WFC Program phone number. Drop ins are billed at a daily rate.

At the time of registration, the following are due:1.The annual, non-refundable registration fee ($40/child or $60/family) - due immediately2.The security deposit equivalent to approx. one month's tuition including fees/discounts (applied to your June's tuition) - due immediately3.The first month's tuition - due by August 20thIf you are registering after the above listed dates, all of the above is due at time of registration.
A $15 Facility Fee is applied to the charges associated with the use of the school facilities. This fee, per student (not per program), is collected by our organization and paid directly to your school district. This fee will be billed monthly and is due by the tuition due date.
SAMPLE DAILY SCHEDULE
The Work-Family Connection’s teaching staff believes that the Programs should serve as the student’s "home away from home" and are places where a great deal of growth and development take place. Within structure and limits, there needs to be much freedom and many choices. We believe that the environment should be challenging, both mentally and physically, foster independence, teach life skills, and allow students to grow intellectually, socially, and emotionally.
Based on this philosophy, a flexible daily schedule is developed. We want the Program to be the children's programs and to meet each group's needs. The daily schedule is not cast in concrete, but is flexible and changes to make room for special events, themes, and projects. The schedule may change throughout the year, after observing the groups' interactions and asking students about their interests.
