Extended Child care

Our Extended Child Care (ECE) program offers high-quality early childhood education and child care to children from 6 weeks old - 12 years old on a sliding fee scale. The program operates 24 hours per day, 7 days per week and serves parents who are either working or in school. The goal is to provide the best possible education to young children, in preparation for Kindergarten, and to provide a safe place for our older children before and after school.
