What if I want to take a leave of absent for 3 months?

From time-to-time, “holding” a child’s spot for child care may be necessary (e.g., maternity leave, summer vacation, etc.).  BCPCC allows you to take up to 12 weeks off while holding your child’s enrollment place (Limit 1 Extended Leave per year). BCPCC requires that you make one weeks’ worth of tuition per child as a holding fee for every four weeks that the child is gone. Prorated charges will apply if fewer weeks are used. Accounts must be up-to-date.
