Gretchen’s House, Inc. does not legislate, condone, or censure private Child Care that staff may provide to families outside their paid working hours for Gretchen’s House. Gretchen’s House, Inc. takes no responsibility or liability for actions or arrangements made by staff or families of Gretchen’s House, Inc. that are not a part of our contracted services. This care is not a part of the Gretchen’s House, Inc. program, and as such will not be discussed or arranged during working hours. All arrangements for such care are private and will be treated as such.

Gretchen’s House teachers are not permitted to care for children from the centers if we are closed due to inclement weather or dangerous temperatures. The teachers are being paid for this time and are therefore expected to do additional planning and preparation at home. Parents who wish to share child care with other Gretchen’s House parents on these days can put their names on our co-op list and coordinate this care themselves.
