Our programs fill up quickly!
When a program opens, the number of students we can accept is based on the space we have as well as the number of volunteers we have recruited to ensure the safety of the children. After a program has reached capacity, we may ask for additional volunteers from the waitlisted families. If more adults volunteer, then we begin to work through the waitlist. It’s simple, the more volunteers we have; the more students we can enroll. Please consider volunteering!
