Our preschool program offers morning care from 7:30 to 8:00 am and our preschool afternoon care runs from 3:45  to 5:30 pm. The preschool extended care program follows the rules and regulations for licensing and is separate from the K-8 extended care program. Only a certain number of students can be enrolled based on the student to teacher ratio. For this licensing reason, drop-in extended day is not an option for our Preschool program.
The preschool extended day program enrollment is on a first come first serve basis. Priority will be given to families who turn in their contracts first. Once the program is full, families will be placed on a waitlist and will be notified when a spot is available.
AM Extended Care  (7:30 am - 8:00 am) $75 per month
PM Extended Care  (3:30 pm - 5:30 pm) $200 per month
