We offer a variety of class options for 4 year old’s, with morning, afternoon and extended day options available. An extended day is created by selecting a morning and and an afternoon class for registration, along with our Lunch & Learn program.
Lunch & Learn programming is included for those registering in both a morning and afternoon class, provided the gap between programs is less than 60 minutes. A longer lunch will be an additional charge.
Early drop-off (beginning at 8am) options will be available for enrolment once your child has confirmed placement in one of our morning classes.
