St. Mary Child Care Center does not discriminate against applicants or employees based on race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age or disability.
All children attending five days (full-time) per week will be accepted first. Children may attend part-time (two or three days) in cases when they can be matched with another child in order to fill one full-time place.
Children enrolling in the Center are assessed a $200 non-refundable registration fee.
(*The registration fee is due upon your child’s registration along with two weeks advance tuition, a signed and dated copy of your child’s health appraisal and immunization record.)
