ENROLLMENT AND WAITING LIST POLICIES
Children are eligible for admission if a parent/guardian is employed by D.C. and eligible for employee benefits. Children who are age-eligible are enrolled on a first-come, first-served basis within enrollment pattern possibilities. Children attend for two or more full days a week. The same enrollment and fee provisions apply to 19 spaces at the DHMC Child Care Center.
On the date an application is received the child's name will be entered on a waiting list for both centers unless one only is specified, and families will receive confirmation that the child is on the waiting list and of the desired date of enrollment. Most spaces open up in September.
Whenever a vacancy occurs the waiting list is sorted for children of the age the opening is for and the desired starting date. The space is offered to the family on that list with the earliest date of application. If the family declines the space, the center updates the family's desired starting date and offers the space to other families on the list in order of application date. The waiting list is updated periodically to ascertain families' continuing interest in enrollment. No employee group has priority of admission over any other.
Upon enrollment, parents will complete a child profile form, emergency medical information form, permission slips, income assessment form and a medical form signed by the child's physician. The Center provides nutritious snacks and beverages. Parents are responsible for providing diapers and formula for infants, and packed lunches for older children.
