This is our most popular option for those with flexible or frequently changing schedules. A 3-hour minimum is required with up to a maximum of 6 hours per day. We recommend you make a reservation as soon as you know you need childcare. Payment of your reservation is due when your reservation is confirmed. Cancellations 3 or more days in advance are eligible for refund
Prepaid Punch Card
The most flexible way to reserve space and save money! Consider purchasing a punch card in 20-hour blocks. For each 20 hour card purchased, you receive a FREE hour! This option allows you to call and reserve space in advance as needed.
Prepaid Monthly Pass
If you know your schedule, your child will be attending Trettin regularly (at least 8 hours a month) and you'd like a discount; a monthly pass is the way to go. Reserve by filling out a pass, then prepay by the first day your child attends each month and you get a 10% discount. No refunds will be made for cancellations of pass dates.
