Summer Sessions 2022
All Summer sessions will have the hours exactly like the school year. Choose between 9-1 or 9-4. With the option of early drop off at 8:30. Three out of four summer sessions are for 2 weeks at a time and Monday - Friday only. Which means, your child must be enrolled for all 2 weeks of that session. The reasoning for that is to help with the consistency for the children and teachers. Summer is for school students only. Be sure you are enrolling your child(ren) on time for the summer. Keep in mind that the amount of students and teachers drop significantly for us in the summer. Therefore, spots are first come, first serve. Once sessions are full your child will be added to the wait-list. Your child’s spot is not saved until you have turned in paperwork. Payments for June sessions are due in May & payments for July sessions are due in June.
