LCH Learning Centers
Observing the Best Practices for Child Development
Here at LCH Learning Centers in Littleton, Colorado, we endeavor to create an ideal atmosphere to support the all-around development of children. In order to do this, our establishment tailors our services to comply with the standards set by the state. For an in-depth discussion on our policies, you may view the full text of our parent’s handbook here.
According to the Rules and Regulations of the State of Colorado, we must include outdoor play each day except when the severity of the weather, including temperature extremes, makes it a health hazard or when a child must remain indoors due to health reasons.
Be sure that your child attends each day with appropriate garments for outdoor play including shoes, hats for warmth or sun and coats or jackets. Please be sure that all of your child’s outer garments are labeled with their name.

Additional Fees: $100 enrollment fee (per family), $20 late payment, $1 per minute pickup after 6 PM, $35 return checks, and $1 per diaper that we have to provide. These rates are for the current enrollment period only and do not reflect future contracts.
All childcare fees are due, in advance, by close of business on the first day your child attends daycare. After that time, there is a $20 per week late fee assessed to the account. You may choose to pay as little as one week’s tuition and as much as four weeks or more tuition at a time. LCH Learning is not responsible for missing payments.
A two-week notice is required to terminate or change childcare needs. Put all requests in writing and place them in the tuition box. If a two-week notice is not given you will be liable for the two weeks’ tuition. All collection costs incurred by LCH Learning will be added to your account at a minimum charge of $150.00.
A violation of any part of this contract gives LCH Learning the right to terminate daycare immediately. If you have any questions or concerns about the contract, feel free to call and we will explain them to you. We will be happy to address requests that are reasonable. All changes will be put in writing.
There is a $35.00 returned check fee. The $20.00 late fee will also apply to returned checks not paid within 24 hours. If you leave care without paying a returned check, you will be charged for double the face value of the check, returned check fee, late fee, two weeks tuition and collection fees. After your second returned check, we will no longer accept checks from you. Postdated checks are considered late and are assessed the $20.00 per week late fee.
Nonpayment of childcare by the beginning of the third week will result in immediate termination of care and you will be charged for unpaid care, plus two weeks tuition and collection costs.
If you will be on vacation (not qualifying for your free week) your tuition is due before you leave or it will be considered late and your account will be charged a $20.00 late fee.
Drop in Care
Drop in care is provided based on availability. Care is contracted hourly up to 5 hours. After 5 hours, the rate will be billed at a full day rate and is due at the time your child is picked up to avoid a $20.00 late fee. If you call to reserve a drop in spot and do not show up or call, full payment is due within one week.
We are required to provide 2/3 of your child’s daily nutrition in daycare. The weekly menu is posted at the entrances. Breakfast is served from 7:30 – 8:30, morning snack is served at 9:30, lunch is served at 11:30, and afternoon snack is served at 3:00
Each classroom has a lead teacher and assistant. When they are on break or off for the day, other teachers care for the children. We try to work with all of the children. All our staff members play and develop a relationship with each child, so there is a sense of unity with all of the staff and all of the children.
All of the staff is trained fully in CPR, first aid, and universal precautions within three months of employment. Full background checks are done which includes a fingerprint background check.
We will not let our staff be subjected to abusive behavior by any individual entering the building. They are directly responsible for the health and well-being of the children in their care and cannot turn their attention away.
Our potty training contract outlines our philosophy pertaining to potty training and contains our suggestions. We will potty-train whatever way that a parent desires us to pursue, within reason. If you have any questions, feel free to ask. See your potty training contract agreement for specifics.
