2020 Summer Express

  • Our Express Summer Program will be much different than the program that you may be accustomed to in the past. The Express Program offers full-day licensed childcare with fun and enriching activities for children ages 5-12 years of age who are entering grades 1 through 7 for the 2020-21 school year. Children must be potty trained and able to maintain social distancing to attend the Express Program. We will be working individually (practicing social distancing) as much as we can on small projects such as beading, Legos, reading, arts and crafts, STEM, virtual academic resources, distant partner games and more!

    Please note: A statewide order requires individuals to wear face coverings in indoor public spaces (reusable cloth is recommended). This order goes into effect on Friday, June 26, 2020. This order includes children that are 5 years of age and older. Beginning on Friday, June 26, 2020, children in Express will be required to wear a face covering while in care at one of our locations.

    If a program location has an exposure or a positive result of COVID-19 by a student or staff of the building, the program will be closed for a minimum of 14 days and all participants and staff who are exposed will not be allowed to participate in childcare program for a minimum of 14 days.

    • Breakfast
