Snow Day Child Care

November 9, 2010, Volume 57, No. 11

Winter is just around the corner, which means cold temperatures and the possibility of bad weather are fast approaching. If you have children between the ages of 12 weeks to 12 years old, consider registering for Penn’s Snow Day Child Care Program.

This service, available to Penn faculty and staff members with children from 12 weeks to 12 years of age, provides child care whenever the Philadelphia County public schools are closed due to inclement weather but Penn is open for business. Children who attend school in other districts are also welcome on days that Philadelphia public schools are closed.

Snow Day Child Care will be available weekdays between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. from December 6, 2010 through April 1, 2011. Child care is provided by the Penn Children’s Center at the Left Bank Commons, Suite 100, 3160 Chestnut Street. Children must be pre-registered in order to participate. To pre-register, simply complete the online application at www.business-services.upenn.edu/childcare/art.html and return it to the Penn Children’s Center. If you need assistance, contact the Penn Children’s Center at (215) 898-5268 or mpuciata@upenn.edu.
Please note that all registrations must be completed before you can use Snow Day Child Care, and a new registration is required each year. Registration forms cannot be accepted on the day that care is requested.
