Frequently Asked Questions
If I attend the center do I need to be there for the whole day?
You are free to arrive and depart at any time during our hours of operation. We have a full day and half day option for attendance. Half day is for 4 hours; a full day is any day that is longer than 4 hours.
Do I need to attend the center every day of the week?
Some clients attend 1-2 days per week; some attend 5 days/ week. It is up to the availability in the center and the client and family as to how many days they attend.
Can I come in any day I am available?
We maintain a maximum number of clients each day; clients choose specific days of attendance when beginning participation in the center. If changes to that schedule are needed or desired, contact the manager of the center they attend to determine if a day can be added or changed to another day.

How do we start the process of admission to one of the centers?
Contact one of the managers to have an information packet mailed to you and to arrange a tour of the center. If you are unsure which center to contact, just pick one,and we can help you figure out where to begin. If there is a waiting list to attend you will need to come and take a tour with the client to be added to that list.
