Summer Program (June, July & August)

A modified summer program is available from June through August. The program is from 9AM-2PM, with Extended Care available as well. We offer fewer age groupings, combining children in close age proximity, while maintaining the highest level of quality and encouraging fun, interactive opportunities among the children. The summer program has a greater focus on recreational activities, outdoor play and summer fun!
