Question: What is your inclement weather plan?
Answer: All Star Learning Center seeks to remain open and provide care for families that have to work during inclement weather. The Owner/Director will monitor weather conditions and follow guidance from local and state agencies to determine the best course of action. In the event that it is deemed
necessary to close early, open late, or close the center for the day or following day- families will be
contacted and informed so that they can make care arrangements. In the event that the center closes
early due to inclement weather, we ask that children are picked up in a reasonable amount of time to
ensure that all parents, children, and staff can safely travel home. Tuition is due for full and part time
schedules during inclement weather closings.
