Child Care

Website-Programs-Child-Care-Banner.pngThere are a number of childcare opportunities for before and after school care and/or kinder care for our students through a series of community and organizational partnerships. Information on contacts and locations can be accessed here but we urge people to make arrangements early as there are a limited number of spaces for these popular programs.
