Heavenly Child Care requires a 24-hour cancellation or change notice. Without a full 24-hour notice you will be charged a $75 service fee. Same day cancellations or any no call no shows for any reason, including weather or illness, will be charged the full amount of each child's reserved program.

Weather Policy
Weather can be very unpredictable. There are no refunds due to weather conditions. If your reservation is specifically dependent upon snow conditions please keep in mind the 48-hour cancellation policy still applies, regardless of the weather, as there are many other Tahoe activities you could participate in while we are still providing care for your children.

Please pick your child up promptly after their program. A Late Fee of $20 will be added every 10 minutes after your program pick-up time. Thank you for your cooperation.
