Daycare Billing: You will receive a bill every 2 weeks via email for any daycare hours used during the previous two weeks. Daycare is billed by the whole hour, with the exception of 5:00  – 5:30 pm, which is billed as a half-hour. A late fee of 5% is assessed if daycare invoices are not paid within 15 days of being issued.  

Scholarships: ACNS makes every effort to make scholarships available each year. However,  because of the unprecedented loss of revenue from the pandemic ACNS is unable to give out scholarships this year.  

Parents experiencing financial difficulties should contact the Executive Director before falling behind in their payments. Suitable alternative plans can usually be worked out.

HOURS OF OPERATION

We follow the Newton School schedule except for the starting and ending dates and the Winter break dates. Please note the calendar for specifics.

Nursery School Hours: 9:00 am to 12:00 pm – Monday through Friday.

Flexible Daycare Hours: 8:00 am to 9:00 am and 12:00 pm to 5:30 pm on an hourly basis- Monday through Friday during the school session. Daycare is usually available during the February and April school vacation weeks; pre-registration is required. We reserve the right to adjust daycare hours based on enrollment.  

SNOW POLICY

ACNS follows the school closings/delays of Newton Public Schools. Our delays are based on our daycare opening time of 8:00 am. If Newton delays the start of school by one hour, ACNS will open at 9:00 am. If Newton delays by two hours, ACNS will open at 10:00 am. If Newton closes, ACNS closes – both Nursery school and daycare. Daycare may have to close early on days when inclement weather is developing; we will try to give parents a few hours of notice in these situations.
