Fresh Start


   Day Care


Fresh Start Family Day Care is open year round.  I am also flexible with a school year schedule for school age children or teachers looking for care for their children. I am closed for three vacations per year (April school vacation, 1 week in July, and Christmas school vacation) The vacation schedule will be available each January.  I also observe most major Holidays.  There is no fee for days that the day care is closed with the exception of the December week vacation. This is the only paid vacation week. The parents also have the right to one week (unpaid) vacation if their vacation does not coincide with the day care's vacation schedule.
