LICENSED SCHOOL-AGE CARE PROGRAM:
This highly structured and more supervised program offers children ages 5-12 a variety of developmentally appropriate activities within a specially designated safe and nurturing environment from 2-5:45 PM. EEC certified staff work with families to create a consistent schedule of enrichment activities that meet the needs of each child individually. The cost is $22 per day through the school year and $42 per day during school vacation weeks and the summer. Limited EEC Income Eligible slots are available and we accept vouchers.
Each program area offers special enrichment activities that members register for by the session (fall, winter, spring). They are included in membership, and most are free, with the exception of certain activities that may require a small materials fee for materials. Once registered, participants are expected to attend each week. These activities take place from 6-8:45PM on weekdays, immediately following general drop-in hours.
