Daily Schedule and Snack Menu

For the 2021-2022 school year, we are beginning with reduced hours from 9:00am-5:00pm, to allow for additional cleaning, set-up, and planning. This is to ensure the health and safety of all staff and children.

The Center usually operates from 8:00 am to 6:00 pm, Monday through Friday, year round; except as specified in the center's annual calendar. When health and safety guidelines allow, we hope to transition back to this schedule, and we will communicate any scheduling changes with parents.
