We offer Extended Day programming until 2:30 pm, 4:00 pm, or 5:30 pm. The schedule for the classroom is planned to include a variety of materials, experiences and opportunities to learn. The day is structured to allow for both individually-chosen and group activities. A white board will be located outside of your child's classroom highlighting information to be shared about your child's day.
