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:  Parents can drop off their children starting at 7 a.m. and have to pick them up no later than 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.  The start of the school year is in mid-August with a May end date.


Half Day:  Children who come to the preschool part time can arrive as early as 7 a.m. and must be picked back up by noon.  Families can use this half day schedule five days a week or less.  Generally, we encourage parents to stick with a Monday, Wednesday, Friday or Tuesday, Thursday half day schedule if they're going to send their child to school half day but not every day.


Summer Camp:  Want to drop your child off for a week during the summer?  Maybe a few?  Summer camp is a great option for parents to send their kids to school for a short period of time.  We have weekly programs with lessons you can choose from for summer camps.  This program rums June through August and is designed for children ages 3 to 6-years-old.  They must be dropped off by 8:45 a.m. and picked up no later than noon the week they're signed up for summer camp. There are half day, full day and summer camp hours available. Please ask one of our directors and they'll help you decide what works best for your schedule!  CLICK HERE for the SUMMER CAMP 2017 brochure!
