Please pay via the online payment link in the Kids Care Parent Portal.

Make-Up Classes
All attempts will be made to reschedule classes that have been cancelled due to inclement weather, instructor absence, or other unforeseen circumstances. Typically a program that meets weekly will extend another week at the same day and time, check with your instructor to confirm. Classes missed due to participant absence for personal reasons cannot be made up.

Drop-Off and Pick-Up Procedures
Children who attend the school at the Enrichment Program location will be dismissed to the program right after school. Please inform the school if your child will be attending an enrichment program. Children who are attending from another school must be walked into the Enrichment Program location and signed in with the appropriate Enrichment Instructor. At the end of class, the Instructors will bring children to the school’s main entrance to be picked up by parents, guardians, or after school staff. Children may go to the EDP program if they are scheduled for that day or have arranged for a drop-in. If your child has not been picked up after five minutes from the end of the class, your child will be brought to the Extended Day Program and you will be charged a late fee of $15.00 for anytime within the first fifteen (15) minutes. An additional $1.00 per minute will be charged for each subsequent minute you are late. Please respect our instructors and drop-off and pick-up your child on-time.

All Enrichment Program participants are expected to behave in a respectful, kind, and safe manner while attending any program with Westborough Community Education. The Director reserves the right to dismiss any participant when that participant’s behavior interferes with the rights and safety of others and/or the participant’s behavior is disruptive to the program.
