KinderCollege's FAQs

How does the waitlist work?

The KinderCollege does have a waiting list when the classrooms reach their full enrollment.  Please call 208-792-2254 to inquire about openings or to be added to the waiting list.  We will need your name and phone number as well as the age of your child to put you on the correct waiting list.  Our waiting list is updated monthly and we encourage people on the waiting list to call monthly and update their spot on the list.  If we haven’t heard from a person on our waiting list in two months they are removed and the person after them will move up the list. 

What hours qualify as part-time/full-time?

The KinderCollege offers a daily rate for Lewis-Clark State College students who are enrolled full-time (12 credits or more).  The daily rate is available for students who plan on using the KinderCollege for 3 days a week or less however those 3 days a week must be the same days for the entire semester.  For example, many students can set up their classes so that they only need to be on campus on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays so they will need child care on these three days for the entire semester.  There is a monthly rate for students who will need care four or five days a week and a separate monthly rate for non-students, faculty and community members. 

what is due on the first day of enrollment?

Before we can provide child care for your child at the KinderCollege we need the completed registration form with the $25 registration fee, the completed contract, a copy of your child’s immunizations, the complete Child and Adult Care Program eligibility form and the “All about your child” form. 

do i need to schedule an appointment to visit the center?

This is not a requirement but it is strongly recommended. It is helpful to call ahead to make sure you visit at a time that allows you to see what happens in our classrooms as opposed to nap time, and ensures that staff will be available to answer questions and show you through the building. 

do you offer drop in care?

We do not offer drop in care.
