For $80 you will receive 10 (ten) before care sessions on a punch card. The card will live at the school, and each time you drop off the card will be punched. When you only have a few punches left, you’ll be able to decide if you need to purchase another card, switch to a monthly rate or just use the drop-in. NOTE: Unused punches are not refundable.
