Arrival and Departure

ED Centers open at 6:30 a.m. Children are not to arrive before that time because staff members may not be present to supervise children. When dropping off children, parents should be sure that staff members are present before leaving the children.

Parents of afternoon ED Center children must pick up their children by 6:00 p.m. Children must be signed out each day by the parent or other individual who is authorized to pick up the child. If no one authorized to pick up the child has been reached by 6:30 p.m., ED Center personnel will call 911 to make arrangements for the police to transport the child to the Vanderburgh County Child Protection Service. ED Center staff members may not transport the child.

A $10.00 late fee per child will be charged to parents who are late picking up their child/children. The $10.00 amount will be charged if the parent arrives between 6:01 p.m. and 6:19 p.m. If the parent arrives after 6:19 p.m., a $20.00 late fee per child will be charged. If a parent is habitually late in picking up the child, the parent is at risk of having the child removed from the program.
