The Full Time Program operates Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. New classes are formed at the beginning of August. The Full Time Program is closed for 10 holidays, 9 professional days, and 2 Parent/Teacher Conference days. See the 2018-2019 School Year (PDF) for a complete listing.
Children from six weeks through five years are eligible to attend five days per week for up to 9 ½ hours per day.

Daily, children are served two snacks and a heart healthy lunch prepared on site "from scratch" with fresh ingredients.
