Childcare to fit your schedule

The new school year is already in full swing and the new month of September is here. Childcare solutions are always a part of the school year. The daily or weekly schedule for parents is not always a 9-5 workday in our society nowadays. Many parents have part-time jobs and often there is more than one job. This kind of work schedule sometimes presents difficulty in finding childcare. Many parents work from home or are stay-at-home parents. Both moms and dads can be stay-at-home parents and sometimes need a day to run errands or keep appointments without taking children along.

La Petite Childcare Center in Sarasota has the perfect solution to all of these scenarios with its Flexcare program. The Flexcare program offers parents the opportunity to use drop-in or childcare for different work schedules throughout the year. Parents may purchase childcare days in advance to use as needed all year long.

The Flexcare program is one in which parents purchase prepaid cards in 5-day increments through La Petite Childcare Center. There is no limit as to how many days you can purchase in advance. The Flexcare cards can be used as needed for childcare during holidays and school breaks, parents' part-time work schedules, and stay-at-home parents who might want to have a day to shop, keep appointments, or use the day for a little "me time". No registration fee is charged at the time of purchase. A 48-hour notice is required for reserving your child's space after completing the enrollment forms. Parents may use their Flexcare cards all at once or one day at a time throughout the year.

La Petite Childcare Center is located at 4507 Vintage Drive. The childcare center has been in the community for many years, and is accredited. You are invited to tour the center and use their flexcare childcare solution as an added benefit for enrolling your child.
