Programs run four half-days per week (Monday - Thursday) with hours of operation varying from school to school. 

Children with birth dates between January 1, 2018 - December 31, 2018 may enroll in the 2022/23 program. (Programming for 3yr-old children who have met criteria for Early Intervention Support may be available. Contact us for information regarding whether your child may qualify.)
