Children who are enrolled in full-time after-school care are eligible to enroll in half-day programs with no additional charge. Children who are enrolled in part-time after-school care will be eligible to enroll ONLY if the half-day falls on a day they would normally attend. If the half-day does not fall on a day that your child attends or your child only attends the before-school program you can register your child at an additional cost, should space be available.
