School Year Programs

Enrollment for our 2019-2020 school year programs is open! Please note: our drop-off program only has open slots for Monday through Wednesday. Similarly, our Parent-Child program only has slots Monday, Thursday, and Friday. Sign up for our waitlist to be first in line if spaces open up.
