3-5 yr Full Day Program

3-5 yr Full Day Program

Many families appreciate a full-day program for their child as an opportunity for early learning, socialization and general life skills.  Others see full day care as a necessity, as many households rely on two incomes.  Regardless of your situation, it is helpful for young children to learn skills such as getting along with others, adaptability and following instructions. Combine that with some early learning, and children will be on the road to kindergarten readiness.

The full day daycare program is available for the entire day that the campus is open.   Parents that require less care than a full day, can check out our Preschool  program or Junior Kindergaren.
