General Program Information

Please note when selecting programs for your child, we place children in programs using the East Penn School District cutoff date of September 12th of the current school year. Whatever age your child is/was on that date will be the group he or she stays with until the next school year starts, even in the baby and preschool programs.

Also, many of our programs require advanced registration.  Please contact us in advance if you would like to register for a program so that we can prepare for the right number of children. You can use the contact form on the Parents page for more details about a program or for availability.
