Child Development Center closed starting Monday, March 23
The Teachers and I would like to thank you for your kindness and support this week as we navigate the COVID-19 situation. Your children’s health and well being has always, and will always remain, our topmost priority. It is with conflicted hearts that the University has determined the need to temporarily close the Child Development Center beginning on Monday, March 23rd. We will continue to provide updates on our plans for reopening the Center as they are available.
We understand that this creates a hardship for you and we will miss your children immensely. During the period that we are closed, teachers will maintain communication with you and your children. We are looking into virtual meetings and resources to engage with your child(ren) and offer support to you as families. Teachers will be reaching out to you later this week via email.
The University is determining what the prorated refund will be for each family based on the remainder of March’s prepaid care. We will be in touch with you shortly regarding your refund. We have also made a request to Payroll to stop payroll deduction for the April payments for all families enrolled in that program and we are waiting on confirmation that this will occur this pay period. We will invoice families for care in April once we know the operating schedule for the Center.
In the meantime, please know this decision was given a great deal of attention and was made with your child(ren)’s best interest in mind.
We wish you well and hope you enjoy this extra time with your children.
