School Calendar: About Us

Snow Emergencies

We do our best to remain open during snowstorms. We generally follow public school closings. Some of the factors that do not allow us to open are:

  • There is a Massachusetts state of emergency and people are asked not to drive.

  • Public transportation is shut down.

  • There is an Arlington snow emergency and parking ban. We have no parking lot for the teachers who drive in.

  • Our snow removal service cannot clear a safe entry to the school.

Staff Vacations

All family child care providers get a paid vacation. Parents pay for two vacation weeks a year.  Casa Esme is closed for a week in the summer, usually the last week in August; and the week following Christmas. Parents pay regular tuition during the vacation weeks, according to their usual weekly bill. If your child comes 3 days a week, then you’ll pay for two 3-day vacation weeks. When children are out for their family vacation at other times during the year you must continue to pay in order to hold your child’s place.
