DROP-IN PRESCHOOL

Do you have a preschooler who would benefit from structured classes available on an hourly drop-in basis? Our preschool program is now available five days a week for up to four hours per child per day. It's perfect for kids who haven't attended preschool yet, or for off days or for times before or after regular preschool.
