Holiday/Vacation Policies

"Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall, but they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength. They shall mount up with wings as eagles, they shall run and not be weary, and they shall walk and not faint."

Westchester Christian Child Care Center is closed on the following holidays:

  • New Year's Day
  • Epiphany
  • Martin Luther King Jr. Day (staff development day)
  • Ash Wednesday
  • Maundy Thursday
  • Good Friday
  • Memorial Day
  • Flag Day (staff development day)
  • Independence Day
  • Labor Day
  • Columbus Day (staff development day)
  • Veterans Day (staff development day)
  • Thanksgiving and the day after Thanksgiving
  • Christmas

We also close at 2 p.m. on Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve so that our staff can be with their families.

Parents must pay full tuition for all weeks in which a holiday falls; if the holiday is on a Monday, payment will be due on Tuesday.

If your child needs to stay home because they are not feeling well, we request that you please call us by 9 a.m. that day to let us know that we should not expect them and that we should pray for them to get better soon. If your child has a fever or is vomiting or has been diagnosed with a contagious illness, please keep them home for the health and safety of both your child and their fellow students; if symptoms of illness are found once your child has been left in our care, you will be contacted and asked to come pick them up and take them home as soon as possible.

Since we believe that family bonding time is very important and that all children should be able to go out and explore the wonders of God's creation with their loved ones, we offer parents the option of withdrawing their child from our center for two vacation weeks per year. Tuition for these weeks will be a third of the usual rate, and you must notify our staff at least two weeks in advance of when you plan to use this option so that we can best plan for our staffing needs.
