Take a Break from Child Care

KTC consistent schedule contracts allow for a certain amount of vacation days during specific seasons (school year or summer). Consistent schedule contracts will credit for scheduled care if a child is not in attendance. Pick Your Day contracts allow for more flexible non-participation days. More information for vacation and non-participation days can be found below.
