  • Non-School Day programming is offered at all of our programming sites except Osseo Middle School and Oak View.

  • Consistent Schedule: 3, 4, or 5-day schedules that are the same week to week.  Contract changes must be made online through our registration system by Wednesday at 11:59pm every week. Please note that non-school days are not included with your tuition and must be signed up for separately online. All contract changes, following our August 30th deadline, require a $5.00 processing fee per contract, per change.
  • (NEW!) Drop In Care Contract: Require 3 programming days of advance notice, online through the TCE system. In emergency situations, a family can call the site to see if an exception could be made. Space availability applies, and all drop in days will be confirmed by either a phone call or email from a staff person in Kidstop. Rates reflect per programming period.
  • Non-School Days Only Contract: Our non-school day contract is a way for families to sign up for care on certain days when school is not in session. To register for a non-school day, choose a drop-in care contract.

Please note that tuition is paid regardless of student attendance
