Winter Weather Policies


If schools are closed for snow our before and after care program will be closed as well.

Please be sure to sure to check the news stations for your town. Depending on the severity of the weather, a Snow Day Club may be offered, separate registration and payment required. 


If the Berlin schools have a delayed opening the before care program will start at 8:00 AM until school begins.

If schools call an early dismissal due to inclement weather, child care will be provided until 4:00 PM. We want to ensure all of our families and staff get home safely.
