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.
