PROGRAM OPTIONS

No two families schedules are exactly alike.  It's why we have a variety of options for parents to drop off and pick up their children from our Preschool Center.


Full Day:  Full day schedules are available in several different options: Monday -Friday, Monday/Wednesday,/Friday, or Tuesday/Thursday.  Parents can drop off their children starting at 7 a.m. and have to pick them up no later than 5:30 p.m..  The start of the school year is in mid-August with a May end date.


Half Day:  Half day schedules are available in the same options as full day: Monday-Friday, Wednesday, Friday, or Tuesday, Thursday.  Children who come to the preschool half days  can arrive as early as 7 a.m. and must be picked back up by noon. 


Summer Camp:   Our summer camp program rums June through August and is designed for children ages 3 to 6-years-old.  A variety of summer camp themes are offered for parents to choose from.  Children can attend for any number of weeks they are interested in and are not required to register for the entire summer.  Summer campers may be dropped off at 8:45 a.m. and must picked up no later than noon.

Our Lollipops Class is for 2-year-olds.
