Parents may choose one of two payment options for the school year:

True Flat Rate: Parents pay same weekly fee throughout school year. School year program flat rate does not include full day care on school district inservice days, or days when school is not in session. Families who choose the flat rate for the school year will not be able to use full day care on an inservice day, without prior arrangement and paying an additional drop in fee.

Blended Rate: Covers full-day care during school district inservice days. Parents pay same weekly fee throughout school year. We have introduced the blended rate so that we do not have to adjust the bill balance on the account following an inservice day. Blended rate does not cover delays or early dismissals due to inclement weather. These services are provided as part of specific contracted hours.

If you contract for the flat rate, and find that you will need care on an inservice day, you may change your contract to the blended rate prior to the inservice day. It will then remain at the blended rate for the school year.

Snow Policy

Care on early dismissal or delay of school is available on a limited basis and might result in additional charges depending on the hours of care that have been contracted.

Programs will be open when PVASD cancels school for the entire day.

Summer Camp

The CDFC operates a Summer Camp Program at Trinity United Church of Christ begins shortly after the end of the school year and ends in August.
