  • PRE-K – GRADE 2: Owls

    Come join us for enriching days of community and activities hosted by our skilled early childhood staff. Groups will enjoy daily activities that include the arts, design, movement, music, and interactive exploration. During Screen Breaks, you have the option of closing your screen. The week is designed with a predictable schedule to keep continuity for your child, but the specific activities will change each day. There is a balance of “on-screen” with “screen-on” time supervised by staff.
