NJS has always offered make-up days on a one-to-one trade.
Please review our make-up policy below, we ask that parents respect and adhere

to it.​ We believe in a value for your money. Unfortunately, our current

make-up policy is sometimes misused. We do not want to change the

current policy, so we ask that you respect it. It is a lot of additional work

with 30+ families, but it works well when we are all on the same page. 

Thank you!

Any time that you know your child will not be in attendance please
email and let us know by date(s).

Please call, text (379-6510) or email by
8:00 a.m. to let us know if your child is ill and will not be

attending on a given day. This opens up a spot for another child to use a
make-up. You may email or text, if you know the night before or

early morning.

Parents are responsible to keep track of all missed paid days by
date(s). Make-ups will be honored on a one-one basis for each

date, on a space available basis. Tuition MUST BE CURRENT

in order to use make-up(s).

Make-ups may be used on a SPACE AVAILABLE BASIS ONLY.

Make-ups are not to be used to rearrange your child’s schedule

weekly, e.g. playdates, skiing, etc.

On a similar note, please DO NOT count on an additional day

weekly to supplement your child’s schedule. Please choose the
day(s) that you would like for your children to attend and schedule


You may request a make-up day by emailing Please do not call and ask the teachers
to check for you or to write your requests in. This is very
disruptive and takes away from the children.

Mare will confirm if the make-up day requested is available or not.​
If you have agreed to your child coming for a make-up day on the
day requested, that will be counted as a make-up day ~ even if

you (or your child) decide not to come (We do not want

to hold make-up spots unnecessarily).

We share make-up(s) with all of the children. We take turns with
the children (i.e. if your child recently had a make-up, we may go

to the next name). Do not be discouraged if there are several names.

Keep track of the days missed and used by date(s). It is your
responsibility to do so. We have very detailed records and can
check against yours if necessary. It is very time consuming and
difficult to have to chase and we value the honesty of our NJS

Kinder Cottage families.

Thank you for respecting our Make-Up Policy. It really is a nice
benefit and we would like to continue to offer this.
