Hours of Operation

3Rs Child Development Center is open from 6:15 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, 12 months a year. We also provide a drop-in service and hourly care, if space is available. Half-day service is also available.

Arrival & Departure Times

3Rs Child Development Center’s responsibility begins when you sign in and your child is in the care of 3Rs Child Development Center staff within the center. Under no circumstances should your child be allowed to find his/her way into the center or into his/her classroom alone. It is very important for all children to be in the Center by 10:00 a.m.


For the naptime, each child (except Infants) will rest on his or her own cot. Even if your child does not sleep, he will be asked to rest quietly. Soft music may be played and the teachers will help children to relax. A teacher or teacher’s assistant will supervise naptime at all times. Please bring blankets and/or a pillow. Remember to label all items.

Holidays & Observances

We are closed only for nine (9) legal holidays: New Year’s Day, Martin Luther King Day, Memorial Day, Fourth of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, the day after Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve and Christmas. There is no reduction in tuition for these holidays.

Birthday Celebrations

We feel your child’s birthday is a special event and all the children enjoy celebrations. Your child may bring a commercially prepared treat for his/her entire class. We request that you notify your child’s teacher in advance.
