New Daycare Application Details
This notice is regarding the new staff daycare that will open in October, the Little Eagle Child Development Center. The daycare is located in the new elementary p.e. building on the west end of campus. Melissa Kilgore (Director) and Avery Rhoads (Assistant Director) have been selected to run this exciting new addition to our district.
We anticipate opening the daycare when we return from fall break on Monday, October 18th. At this time, the capacity of the daycare will range between 10 to 12 children depending on the age makeup of the group. DHS guidelines will be utilized to determine the maximum numbers allowed for each age. We are currently at capacity for children under the age of one.
Initially, we intended to open up the daycare for children of staff members only. However, since we still have a few open spots, we have decided to open the facility to non-staff member children. If you are interested in your child attending the new daycare, please stop by the administration building to complete an application.
The order of preference will be as follows:
#1 Staff members child
#2 Staff members grandchild that lives within the same household
#3 Staff members grandchild that lives outside the household
#4 Community members children *A waiting list will be created once all spaces are filled.
Once you have a spot reserved, you are guaranteed to keep that spot for the entire school year. However, for children outside of preference group #1, it is not guaranteed that your child will have a reserved spot the next school year. The order of preference (as shown above) will be used to make determinations each year.
The cost of the daycare is $26 a day. The program will be private pay only, with payments due on the first day of each month. The $26 dollar fee will be assessed for all days the daycare is open regardless if the child is in attendance or not. If any unplanned closures of the daycare (snow days, etc.) occur, an adjustment will be made to the year’s final payment. Payment will be due on the first day of each month according to the following schedule: 132 days x $26 = $3432. The total will be divided into eight equal payments of $429/per month, with payment due on the first day of each month beginning October 1st and ending May 1st:
The daycare will be open on days that teachers are contracted to report, including professional development days throughout the school year, with regular hours of 7:15 am to 3:45 pm each day.
