Sign up quickly, as these programs are sure to fill up! Children are not limited to a single program, so feel free to sign up for multiple programs if you are interested.
Each program consists of ten classes during the fall term. Children enrolled in the ECLC will be transitioned between ECLC classes and after school programming.
