If my child arrives at the center after the trip has already left, what happens?

Our trips usually leave exactly on schedule, so it is important that you arrive a few minutes before the advertised departure time. In the event that you do not make it to the center on time, please come into the office or call us at 703-771-5913. We can discuss possible options such as you meeting the bus at their destination. We cannot hold the bus at the center and cause a late departure. In the event that you do not make it to the center in time and are not able to transport your child to the destination to join the group, it is possible that we can accommodate your child at the center in our Video Gaming Camp to be able to provide you care for the day. This will depend on available space and staff ratios. In the event that we are not able to accommodate your child in the Video Gaming Camp, we will not be able to have your child in camp for that day.
