These programs are designed for caregivers to interact with, and help facilitate the learning of the registered program participant. To best serve all of our Early Childhood participants, unregistered children may not participate in the programs. The fees for these programs are per child. There is no charge for the accompanying adult. Please list the accompanying adult on the registration form.
