Program Update | 6-29-2021 

The preschool is excited to announce that we are expanding our hours and days of operation! Effective 6/28/2021 we will have all children in class five days a week and beginning 7/12/2021, we will lengthen our school day to regular time, ending at 2:00 pm. In September when we start the next school year we will re-open the Aftercare Program.

Our current school year ends on August 20th and we will celebrate with a graduation ceremony for children moving on to kindergarten in the Fall. The graduation will be in-person and will be limited to immediate family members this year. We plan to live-stream the event for extended family members and friends that cannot join us.

We completed selection and placement for the next school year on June 24th. Notifications will be sent to parents over the next week but because of the holiday it might be mid-July before you receive notice. We still have vacancies for next year so please contact Dawn Doar if you would like to submit an application.

Enjoy your summer and stay safe!
