Hourly Program

The Hourly Program is designed as a short term child care option, including an age appropriate developmental curriculum, for parents with temporary or irregular needs, such as volunteering, in-processing, respite care, doctor’s appointments, etc. Parents can use the Hourly Program as soon as their child is registered with CYS Services. The center will accept reservations up to one month in advance.  Although some drop-in spaces are available daily, advance reservations are recommended. Spaces are reserved on a first come, first served basis                    
Parents who need to cancel their reservations please call by 8:00 A.M on the day of their reservation so families awaiting care can be scheduled.       

“The LEAD CDC is a terrific program and very convenient for me since I work on Depot. I can visit my daughter anytime, and it is very parent oriented. The staff keeps us informed on the children’s progress, what they do all day, what they have for lunch, and what they will be covering on a weekly basis. ”
