Child Care

Principia College Commencement will be held on Saturday, May 7, 2:00 p.m. in Cox Auditorium. As a kindness to our graduates and guests, children age three and under will not be admitted to the auditorium.
Child care will be provided on a complimentary basis at The Love Bug Room in Gehner on the Principia campus for children nine years of age and younger. Care will be provided from 12:30 p.m. until 4:30 p.m. In order to have appropriate staffing for the number of children receiving care, you must register your children with The Love Bug Room no later than Friday, May 2. No drop-ins will be accepted. To register, e-mail or contact Jennifer Johnston by phone at 618.374.5609.
On the day of Commencement, each child must be accompanied by an adult when dropped off at Gehner. You may not drop your children curbside. An adult must accompany them to The Love Bug Room and sign the registration form when they arrive. The same adult must sign for and retrieve his or her child. Please pick up your child promptly at 4:30 p.m.
