We know that everyone gets excited about the holiday season, no matter how or what we celebrate.

At 3:30pm we will transition to our after-school program and Club Members will be able to stay on for an additional 3 hours if they wish.

As anticipated, there has been an extremely high demand for our program and although we wish we could accommodate every child and family, it is just not possible. We take safety and quality very seriously, and therefore limit numbers to what is appropriate for our building and our staffing. However, if you are one of the unlucky ones on our waitlist, our colleagues at Appleseed Daycare will take children up to age 7, and make sure to check back in with us over the summer to see if anything has changed.
