Our Programs

IMG_0441We offer full and half day programs for children 4 weeks up to 12 years of age.  Children in our full day program come for 6-10 hours a day, however a child may stay longer for an additional charge.  Half-day children may come up to 6 hours daily.  We ask that children in our three and four year old classes please arrive by 9 am as this is when our most important learning begins and we ask that all ages arrive before 10:30 am so we can plan for lunch and staffing.  We do understand that some families have varied schedules and we are always willing to make accommodations for them and their children if you give us a call.
