Center Policies

Cancellation/Make-Up Policy

It is our policy to close the center when the Philadelphia School District is closed due to hazardous weather.  We may also decide to cancel groups if walking conditions are unsafe for families with young children.  Group members will be notified by email/phone if it is necessary to cancel a group. 

We regret that we cannot pro-rate or reimburse you for groups you are unable to attend for personal reasons, or for groups canceled due to inclement weather.  However, we will make every attempt to schedule a make-up session for any cancelled groups.  

Child and Parent Center's Health Policy

The Hall-Mercer Child & Parent Center believes that all infants and children should receive the recommended vaccines according to the schedule published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the American Academy of Pediatrics. All families who register for our program are asked to verify that their child has been immunized according to CDC and AAP recommendations. To ensure the well-being of the children participating in our program, we also ask that all group participants carefully review and follow our Guidelines for Reducing the Incidence of Contagious Illness, which will be distributed in group. We are happy to address any questions or concerns parents may have about these policies.
