Weekly schedule will be a set schedule with 18 bi-monthly payments. You must schedule and pay for your child's attendance on the calendar schedule via Day Care Works. When the licensing capacity is met, the calendar no longer allows families to schedule for that day. This allows us to be in accordance with licensing rules. Access the DayCareWorks sign-up at FerndaleSchools.org/SACCSignUp.
