School Notes

  • HCC provides care for children from three (3) months of age through pre-K.
  • Full-Time Care: The majority of children enrolled at HCC attend full time. Children who attend five (5) days a week are considered full time.
  • Slot-Sharing: Slot-sharing opportunities are handled on a case-by-case basis and must be approved by HCC`s Director. The slot-sharing option is limited to two (2) age- and developmentally-compatible children attending on complimentary days to constitute one full-time slot. Parents may not sublet or share slots without written approval from the Director.
  • Part-Time Care: HCC generally does not offer part-time enrollment. In the event a classroom has a vacancy and current staffing allows, HCC`s Director may allow for Part-Time enrollment on a case by case basis.
