Weather Policy

Webster Child Care Collaborative reserves the right to call for emergency closings when necessary.  Closings will be in keeping with information provided by weather, police, state, and rescue personnel.  Tuition will be due if the center is closed due to unanticipated emergency or weather.

  • You can call the center (508) 943-7775 to leave a message if your child is not coming in.  This allows us to track the children who are remaining home.
  • If your email has been provided to the center, notification will be sent by email if there is an emergency closing and the internet is available.
  • A notice will also be placed on our Facebook page if the internet is available.
  • If you call the center after 6:00am, if the center is open, there will be staff to answer the phone to advise you of this.


In the event of early closings, each parent or guardian will be notified by phone and/or email, please make arrangement to pick up your child as soon as possible.  We do not want children or staff stranded at the center.  If you have a long commute, it is a good idea to arrange for a “back up” person who can pick up your child quickly.

If we call you during the day to announce that the center is closing due to serious weather conditions, you must pick up your child by the designated time.  Late pick up charges will be enforced if a child is picked up after the designated closing time.

Our goal is to always have the center open during normal operating hours.  If a decision is made to close the center it is made with everyone’s safety in mind.
