We offer transportation to and from the local schools in the area. If you request transportation, we will expect your child to be on the van everyday, unless you tell us otherwise. This is to guarantee the safety of your child.
- Parents must notify the center at least one hour prior to school dismissal time if their child will not be riding the van in the afternoon. Ideally, a note should be written and given to QCC staff stating the dates of the days you know your child will not be riding in the van from school to the center.
- Please do not assume that we will know your child is not riding the van if they did not ride in the morning or if a sibling is not at the center.
- Roll is checked at the school and upon arrival at the center. You will be called to verify your child’s location if your child does not get on the van when expected.
- Refusal to call and let us know your child will not be riding the van could result in a $5.00 fee for each offense.
Hours of Operation*
Monday through Friday from 6AM to 6PM
*ABC classrooms are open from 8AM to 3PM, Monday through Friday. If your child needs care before or after these times, you may enroll him or her in QCC’s before and/or aftercare program. Please see the “School Age Programs” page for more details. Ask your center’s director for pricing information.
IMPORTANT TIMES DURING THE DAY
- 8:00am – 8:30am Breakfast
- 11:00am – 11:30am Lunch
- Naptime – 12:00pm - 2:00pm
- 2:00 – 2:30 Snack
Please note that from 11:30AM and 2:00PM children are preparing for naptime and resting. Dropping your child off during this time is strongly discouraged. This is not only disrupts other children that are trying to rest, but it may also upset your own child if they have to lie down for a nap as soon as they arrive.
We will be closed on the following holidays. Should any of these dates fall on the weekend, we will observe the holiday on Friday or Monday, whichever day is the closest to the holiday. Tuition is not waived or altered for closings.
- New Year’s Day
- Memorial Day
- Independence Day
- Labor Day
- Thanksgiving Day
- Christmas Day
There will be other holidays, such as Black Friday, Christmas Eve, and Spring Break for which parents must sign up ahead of time in order for their child to attend. This allows us to plan the staff schedule and the children’s meals. Depending on the number of kids that sign up, directors will schedule staff for those children only and it is possible that the center will close early. Each center will have this information posted, so make sure you check with your facility about the closing time on these days.
Children enrolled in the ABC Program will follow the local school district’s calendar for holidays and school closings. If your child needs care when ABC classrooms are closed, please contact your center’s director.
According to Regulation 23.04 in the Arkansas Department of Education Rules Governing the ABC Program, we will follow the Establishment Clause in the First Amendment. ABC materials must be neutral with respect to religion, and no religious activity may occur during the ABC Day.
