We observe the official college schedule for holidays. Parents are responsible for tuition fees for the following traditionally scheduled holidays.

  • New Year’s Day
  • Martin Luther King Day
  • Spring Holiday
  • Independence Day
  • Labor Day
  • Thanksgiving Holiday (Wednesday, Thursday, Friday)
  • Christmas Day

Parents are not required to pay tuition fees for winter break (Dec. 26-31), college-wide planning days or any other unplanned center closures.


Families wishing to withdraw from the center must provide written notification to the office staff two weeks prior to the child's withdrawal. Tuition fees will be charged whether or not the child attends. After withdrawal, a family may request to be placed on the waiting list for future attendance, but will not receive priority as a currently enrolled family and will also have to pay another enrollment fee.

Inclement Weather

In the event of inclement weather, the Child Development Center will follow the campus open/closed schedule established by the college.  The college will contact the following local media with announcements regarding schedule changes:  KMOX Radio (1120 AM); KWRE (730 AM); KFAV (99 FM) Radio; KSDK-TV Channel 5; KMOV-TV, Channel 4; and KTVI-TV Channel 2.  The stations generally make these announcements from 5:30-7 a.m.

You may also access the college website at or call the main college phone number (636-922-8000) for up-to-date information on late openings or closures.

  • Classes may be cancelled entirely.
  • Snow schedule – Classes may be open late based on college business hours of 8 a.m.-5 p.m.

In the event of a tornado, children are evacuated to the CDC basement.  The CDC basement telephone number is 636-922-8519.

In the event of a fire in the CDC, we will evacuate to the College Center. See the parent handbook for emergency evacuation procedures.
