Frequently asked Questions
Days off/Closed/ Early Release Days
If school is called off due to inclement weather the center will also be closed. We follow the WSFC school system calendar only. NCLA may or may not follow this calendar and you may have to make other arrangements for your child if their calendars don’t match.
If the children get out of school early due to inclement weather we will receive Union Cross and go pick up Caleb’s Creek and NCLA. We will close as many hours early as the children were released.
Example: It has just been announced the children will be getting out 2 hours early due to weather. We will get them at the early dismissal time and then closed 2 hours early instead of 5:50 we would be closing at 3:50. This should buy you an additional 2 hours of time to get situated at work before you need to leave for the early dismissal.
Early Release Days
This year WSFC have 6 Early Release days – Students will get out two hours early and they will come to the center. Please have your child picked up by 4pm on these days as we will close early (We will open 2 hours early and close 2 hours early). No additional money is required for these days.

Question: Where do you go if there is a tornado warning? In the event that there is a tornado warning in our or a surrounding county (and we have time to take precautionary measures) we will bring the children and all their stuff over to the church. The children will watch a movie in fellowship hall (this keeps them calm and distracted) as the staff keeps up with the weather and watching out the windows. If there is a sign that further safety measures need to be taken we will bring the children into the church basement. The door to the basement is located right before the entrance to fellowship hall.
Question: My child has a toy they want to bring to the center – can they? Yes. They may bring in any appropriate toys they wish; except Electronics. With the understanding that it their toy gets LOST, STOLEN OR BROKEN, the center is not responsible for it. The child must also understand that if they bring it in it needs to be shared with EVERYONE not just who they want to share it with. No trading, it comes in and goes out with the same person. Please make sure they are very clear on all these matters. Every so often, as a treat, we will allow an electronics day. You will know via email in advance when this day comes.
