Prepaid evening childcare is available for children age 6 months and up. It is provided by University of Hartford students and overseen by NHC volunteers to offer adults an opportunity to participate fully in evening programming.
You can register for Evening Childcare directly in your registration. You must register for Evening Childcare by July 5th, 2017. The cost for Evening Childcare is $100 for the full week or $40 for Friday & Saturday nights.
If you have pre-paid for full week childcare on your registration form, you must attend the Evening Childcare Orientation on Monday with the childcare coordinator who supervises the program. Only families who have paid for childcare ahead of time will be able to use the evening childcare.
How does Evening Childcare work?
- Children can be in evening childcare awake or asleep, however we ask families to put their own kids to bed unless the child can do it her/himself (childcare providers are not responsible for enforcing bed time).
- Children who are signed up for evening child care will be housed strategically.
- Children being cared for while asleep, must be checked-in with the childcare provider.
- Awake children will be supervised in the lounge with reading, quiet games and a chance to hang out. Please bring quiet activities for this time.
- If your children have special needs, please communicate them by July 5th. Depending on your needs, you may wish to consider making private childcare arrangements.
- You will be charged additional fees for returning later than the scheduled end of childcare and can, at the discretion of NHC staff, lose your childcare privileges and forfeit all fees paid.
- Childcare providers will be present according to the schedule. Please be sure to sign your children in and out when you leave/return for the evening, so that we can be sure all children are accounted for before the babysitters are dismissed. (We will have special arrangements for Shabbat.)
