When our classrooms are full, we would be happy to place your child on the waiting list for the next available spot.
To get on the waiting list you must tour the center and give us your child’s basic information including the child’s date of birth, your contact information, a desired start date, and which program you would like to enroll in.
A spot on the waiting list does not guarantee care, but it does mean that the next space that becomes available in the desired classroom the first name on the list will be offered the space. We will call twice and leave a message, if we do not hear from you within 2 days, we will move onto the next name on the waiting list.
If you are on the waiting list, you are always welcome to call and check on spaces available.
To enroll, a completed enrollment packet along with the nonrefundable enrollment/supply fee must be received.

Each classroom will have daily outdoor time scheduled if weather permits. Weather permitting means not raining, and the real feel temperature is between 40-99 degrees. Please dress students appropriately, we will go outside every day if we are able to. Research shows that spending time outdoors in structured and unstructured activities improves both physical and mental health.
Students will have a 30 minute recess every morning. Aftercare students will get an additional 30 minute recess in the afternoon. On days where outdoor time is limited or unable to happen, structured physical activities will be held in the classroom. This can include but is not limited to yoga, stretching, dancing, and other physical exercises.
