NorthRidge is open from 7am-6pm Monday through Friday. Every child ages 12 months and up receives Preschool from 9-11:30am daily. The hours before 9am and after 11:30am are considered childcare.
Academic Kindergarten is also offered from 8am-3:30pm daily. Latchkey is available to those who need it before and after the academic hours.
We do ask that children arrive in their classroom by 9am. This allows the teacher to begin Circle Time without interruption and makes for an easier transition for the children. If you cannot be here by 9am, please give our office a call and we will let your child's teacher know that you will arrive late.
NorthRidge is licensed to care for children until 6:00pm. After that time, any child in our care results in a violation of Kansas Department of Health and Environment Childcare Regulations. Therefore, we charge a substantial late pick-up fee if a parent arrives after 6pm. If it appears that the late fee is not a deterrent and a parent continually arrives late, NorthRidge may consider dismissing that child.
The late fee after 6pm will be assessed based on the following schedule:
6:01-6:05: $15 per child
6:06-6:10: $25 per child
6:11-6:15: $35 per child
6:16-6:20: $45 per child
6:21-6:25: $50 per child
6:26-6:30: $55 per child
6:31-6:35: $60 per child
6:36-6:40: $70 per child
6:41-6:45: $80 per child
6:45-7:00: $150 per child
K5 LATE PICK UP FEE
K5 ends at 3:30pm daily. A late fee of $5 will be assessed if children are picked up late, as your child must be placed in a childcare/latchkey room. Please refer to the "Hours" section of this brochure for specific start and end times.
