Early-Morning Program

As the children arrive they are welcomed into the school by our early morning staff. There is time to prepare for the day by relaxing with a book or socialize with friends. Your child is welcome to bring along a light breakfast snack, as well. Before-Care begins at 7:00am until morning classroom arrival time.
