The center will be closed for the following holidays:

  • Christmas Day

  • New Year's Day

  • Martin Luther King Day

  • Good Friday

We will monitor potential attendance on New Year's Eve and the day after Easter; if less than 20 children will be present, the Center will be closed. We will give advanced notification if we close.

If the holiday is on a Saturday or Sunday, we will be closed the day most businesses observe that holiday. A notice stating the day the Center will be closed will be posted on the front door of the Center five (5) days in advance.

Inclement Weather

In the event of severe weather, the Center will be closed IF the Hinds County Public Schools are closed. Please tune to local radio and TV stations for school closings.

If severe weather warnings or notices are issued, the staff and children will move to the large, brick church building across the breezeway. The Center phone will now ring over in that area, but please do not flood the Center with calls unless it is an absolute emergency.
