Welcome to Global!

Dear Global Parents,

We are thrilled that you will be joining us for the upcoming 2018-2019 school year at Global Children’s Center! Our mission is to provide each child with a variety of experiences and activities in a safe and engaging environment. We aim to make sure that each child learns in their own way!

Global Children’s Center is based on the belief that it’s all about choice! Our program’s foundation is built on the concept that children are born with a unique skill set to learn and bring their own individualistic approach to how they perceive the world around them. We believe that children should be the leaders of their learning and we encourage children to develop each of their individual skills and talents while making meaningful choices. Through partnerships and collaborations with families, schools, and communities, we aim to promote children’s individual social, emotional, physical, and cognitive development as a team.

Main Office Contact

Our main office staff is always eager to help with any questions or concerns a parent may have! Our office is open from 9AM to 5PM from Monday to Friday. Any parent is more than welcome to visit us during these hours! Our contact information is listed below:

Tuition

Making payments for your child’s tuition is a simple and an easy process! Tuition for Before and After Care for Global is billed monthly. Every family will receive an invoice in their email that will list all charges and payments for that billed month. Once you have reviewed those charges, you are able to click on the link above that says, “Pay Your Bill Online.” If you prefer a different method of payment besides online, you are more than welcome to mail a check or money order to our main office. Please note, Global does not accept payments on site!

When it comes to making payments, a family may choose to make monthly, bi-weekly, or weekly payments. We just ask that all families provide payment at least one week in advance. This means that payment should be made the previous Thursday or Friday for the following week. If you would like to enroll in our automatic payment feature and have not done so already, give us a call and we will help you set that up! Automatic payments are schedule for the 15th of each month for the entire month’s tuition. If the 15th of that month lands on a weekend, the withdrawal will take place the next business day. For any questions regarding tuition, feel free to email our Finance Department at globalcctuition@gmail.com.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you pay with a credit/debit card you will incur a 3% processing fee. To avoid this fee, you can simply pay with your bank account through your invoice. This does NOT sign you up for automatic payments, and is a safe, easy method of paying your bill without incurring additional costs!

Sign In/Out Procedures: Pin System

For this school year we will be utilizing our PIN system for attendance. Your family’s PIN will be sent in an individual email, and your director will also have a list of every family’s pin. This PIN will apply to ALL children in your family, so if you currently have more than one child enrolled at Global, you will use the same PIN for each child.

How it works: To sign your child in or out, you must use your family’s pin number each time. Once you have entered your pin number, a screen will display all the children in your family. Make sure the column on the right reads “Signing In” to sign in, and “Signing Out” to sign out. Once that has been done, click OK and you will be all set.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact the main office at (301)-972-5982 or via email at globalcctuition@gmail.com.

PLEASE NOTE: All parents will be required to walk in with their child and sign their child IN and OUT with their designated PIN number at their site every single time. Failure to sign out is a violation of your contract and could result in being charged a late pick up fee. If a parent signs their child in for a day of the week that they are NOT contracted for, they will be charged a drop-in rate of $25 per session.

Required Forms

If this is your first year joining Global or you have been with us before, please make sure all forms are turned in! The required forms are the following:

All forms are available on our website, under the “2018-2019 Before and After School Registration” page and hyperlinked in your confirmation email! All forms must be turned in either before or on your child’s first day of school. For any questions on how to fill out these forms, feel free to contact our main office with any questions!

Snack Menu

Global strives to provide healthy and nutritious snack options for our students by incorporating fresh fruits, vegetables, and healthy grains into our weekly menus.

All our snacks are “peanut free” and we strive to be a completely “nut free zone.”

We keep an active allergy list that is visible for all staff and is constantly updated to ensure the safety of our children.

We are happy to make accommodations for children with special diets and food allergies as needed. Global monitors snacks and meals that are provided from home, and supplements as necessary to ensure that children are receiving nutritious, balanced meals and snacks.
