EXTRA CURRICULAR PROGRAMS

We have been fortunate to have outside programs come on site to offer our preschoolers an opportunity to experience a variety of activities. Parents like the convenience of the onsite programs. Children like the familiarity of the building and classmates. If you would like your child to experience new activities, why not give one of these classes a try? Demo classes are offered for most so your children can get a "feel" for the class. These classes are optional, there is no obligation to join.
