Preschool After Care
To accommodate scheduling issues, we offer a 30-minute extension for children in our afternoon classes. One of our Preschool Teachers gathers children from classrooms at dismissal time, and parents/caregivers then pick children up by 4:00pm. Children engage in supervised play in an outdoor play space, or participate in organized indoor activities. The program has a limit of 8 children and parents are asked to sign-up for the entire semester. The cost is $380 and is for the entire semester. Please contact Laurie Lukaszewicz at 352-2880 x154 for additional information.
