Sibling Policy

For families with a younger sibling enrolled at Interlake, ICC offers a $100 monthly discount, applied to the younger child. 

Late Pick Ups

All children must be signed out by the time the center closes. ICC reserves the right to apply a late fee equal to $5 plus an additional $1 for every minute after time of closing. The Brightwheel attendance log monitors the sign-in and sign-out time. Fees will be applied through Brightwheel.
