Before and After School Childcare
VMS Offers Pre-Planned Childcare
Childcare is available to VMS families needing additional care beyond their child’s class time for $9.25 per hour. Morning childcare is available from 7:30 – 9:00am and afternoon childcare is available from 3:00 – 6:00pm. (For full day toddler childcare, please contact Ana Suan x200.) Families can choose a flexible schedule one to five days a week, providing space is available, but it should be pre-planned.
How to Set up Childcare
To set up childcare, fill out the Childcare Auto Debit Authorization Form (ACH) (click here for 2013-14 - click here for 2014-15) and return it to the Admissions office. Payments will be debited from the account we have on file for your family. This form should be submitted before the 1st of the month. Refunds are not available. Childcare tuition is auto debited on the 15th of the month (covering that month). Please direct all questions & requests to Dee Ferro x210.
How to Change Your Childcare Schedule
The process to change your childcare schedule is the same as above. Please remember that the forms should be submitted before the first of the month, particularly when signing up for before/after school activities.
Late Pickups & Emergency Situations
Please know that when you are late or in the event of an emergency, your child will be cared for in our childcare room. When possible, please call and leave a message letting the appropriate staff know you are going to be late. If you’re late picking up from class, call the front office and/or the classroom. If you’re picking up from childcare later than your scheduled pick up time, please call the childcare staff.
Although drop in childcare is not offered, should a situation arise causing you to need unplanned childcare, please contact Dee Ferro x210. In these situations, childcare will be billed at $15 an hour, in one hour increments only. Please bring a check or credit card to the front office on the day childcare is used.
How to Contact the Childcare Staff
If you are running late or in need of reaching the childcare staff, please call their phone extension to leave a voicemail or send them an email. They will respond at their earliest convenience. If it’s urgent, call the front office for assistance.
