We're sorry, but this activity is over. The last meeting was Tuesday, August 8, 2023.Our Full-Day Program supports families year-round in a partnership to nurture children’s development through play-based learning. Guided play and self-directed play go hand-in-hand as children develop a sense of independence. Children continue to deepen relationships with their peers as teachers support their social-emotional needs. Teachers build on children’s knowledge through stories and activities in the classroom and in the community. Daily schedules include visiting our large-motor spaces, going to enrichment classes, and learning through exploration.
If you would like to apply for enrollment, please register for this application program. Enrollment is based on current available spaces in the program. For more information, please see the notes section below.
The program application fee is $100 for new participants, and $50 for participants that are continuing from the last consecutive program. The application fee is non-refundable. The fee will be transferred to the next school year if we are unable to provide care for your child during the current year.After you pay the application fee, you may receive a confirmation letter to let you know that your child is either enrolled or wait listed for the program.
We offer spaces for enrollment according to application date, start date requested, the availability of age-related openings, financial assistance availability, and priority categories. Spaces are offered as they become available. Current parents are required to give a 30-day written notice when ending care. Once we are notified of a vacancy, we will begin offering the space to the next child on the waitlist.
If your child is wait listed, we will keep your information on file and contact you periodically with any updates. We will contact you when a space becomes available, and we kindly request a response within 2 business days. If we do not receive a response after 3 contact attempts, we will offer the space to the next family on the wait list. If you decline a space offered within your preferred start date range, you will be removed from the wait list. Once removed from the wait list, if you decide to re-apply, you would complete a new application and pay the application fee.
If you have a question or are in need of additional assistance, please contact us at 847-475-8580 or at email@example.com. We are always happy to help.
