KOCO is open Monday-Friday from 7:00 a.m.-6:00 p.m. We accept children from 8 weeks to 12 years old.  (Children 6-8 weeks old can be accepted with the stipulation that they have been given their first series of immunizations.) 


If you choose to enroll at KOCO the following items must be completed before your child can begin:           

1. Child Enrollment Form

2. Current Health Assessment (Physical Exam Form)

3. Last page of Parent Handbook signed

4. Current contract (buttons to the right)

5. Non-refundable $45.00 registration fee

6. Tuition insurance equal to 2 weeks tuition


Tuition insurance will be applied to child’s last 2 weeks at KOCO with a 30-day written withdrawal notice. No tuition insurance will be refunded.



Once these are completed, the Director/Assistant Director can discuss with you items necessary to bring and the best way to transition your child into our program. KOCO has an open door policy: if you would like to visit or participate in any activities, you are invited and welcomed to do so.



Weekly tuition is due by 6 p.m. Tuesday and is payable by personal check, bank check or money order. Unfortunately, KOCO is unable to accept cash or credit card payments at this time.  If at any time your account becomes in arrears more than 2 weeks, your child will be asked to leave the program until which time your tuition is current.  Regular tuition is payable regardless of child’s attendance. 


Additional charges will be added to your bill in the event of a school holiday, vacations, half days, snow days, or if you exceed the number of contracted hours. Parents and guardians are responsible for all fees. If state or federal assistance is used, parents must meet the guidelines set forth by KOCO.



Every year, each family will receive a 2-week vacation waiver. Please notify Directors in advance to arrange for waiver.



All children must have a current physical form and be current in required vaccinations in order to be enrolled at KOCO. The State Day Care Licensing Department requires that each child have an annual physical examination.


If you are not able to get your child’s physical completed before it expires, you must notify the Health Consultant in writing of the date of your child’s next appointment. You must return the completed health form/vaccination record as soon as possible after the appointment to guarantee uninterrupted child care arrangements.
