Day Care Attendance Options

We understand that all families needs are different, so we offer a range of attendance options to help fit in with your work and other family commitments.

The Mead Early Learning Center does not follow a normal school opening pattern - our doors are open year round from 6:15am to 6:00pm in the evening.  We close only on federal holidays, for a short winter break and a small number of program development days.


Attendance Patterns

Extended Day: 6:15am - 6:00pm

This is the standard attendance option for all age ranges - Infants, Toddlers, Preschool and Pre-Kindergarten.  

The majority of our children stay with us for 5 days per week, but we do have a limited number of places available for 2, 3, and 4 day attendance.

The extended day program is available throughout the entire year. Contracts are based on a September to August pattern.

Full Day: 9:00am - 3:00pm

The full day attendance option reflects the timings of a traditional school day.  This option is available only for children attending Preschool or Pre-Kindergarten.

Children attending the full day program are required to attend for 5 days per week.

The full day program is available during the school year only (September to June) and not during July or August when the school is closed for the summer.
