If you have reserved a day for your child to attend The Learning Circle of Wellington, full payment will be due for that class. If your child cannot attend, a make-up day will be arranged in a timely manner.

Please make every effort to be on time at the end of the day. If you suspect that you may be late in picking up your child, you will need to arrange for a back up person to come in your place. In the event that you use a backup person to come for your child, please call us in advance. Your child will only be released to a person on your list of allowable people. They should be prepared to show photo identification upon arrival.
