Following Governor Murphy’s approval to reopen childcare,we are thrilled to offer childcare for children ages 1 – 6 years old starting Monday, July 6th. Due to previously scheduled renovations and construction of The Burke Foundation Childhood Center, scheduled to open in September, summer childcare will take place at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Princeton. This licensed and inspected facility is located at 50 Cherry Hill Road, approximately one mile from our facility.

Please review our updated parent handbook below for details on our safety protocols and information about the summer curriculum:

What does my child need to bring?

Please have your child bring a non-perishable lunch, a water bottle and their own sunscreen, all clearly labeled with your child’s first and last name.

What should my child wear?

Your child should:

  • wear sneakers (closed toed shoes) and
  • have a layer of sunscreen applied at home before arriving.

Our plans changed — can I switch our schedule or withdraw my child?

Last minute changes present a challenge that can affect staffing, supply ordering, special events and registration processing. Therefore, a transfer fee of $25 applies if less than one week prior to the beginning of the month of service is given. Withdrawals are permitted any time but are subject to a $200 non-refundable fee (per child).  Refunds will not be given for absences.

Are scholarships available for the Summer Program?

Financial scholarships are available on a first come, first served basis. For consideration, please complete this application before May 1.
