Our program typically meets twelve weeks during the Fall Semester and twelve weeks during the Spring semester. Throughout the year we will have field trips, special events, performances, and more. We are not a drop off program. Families are responsible for supervising children at all times by remaining onsite or by having an authorized party assigned to students while on campus.

CLASSES 2023-24 will be limited to upper level age groups. We look foward to a full 2024-25 program.
