Due to higher summer demand, we ask that patrons limit their registration to one family, not necessarily their own. Telephone and early registration will not be accepted. Children must meet age requirements by the first day of the program and grades noted are grades entering in September 2017. Please remember that 3 ½ years old means the child must be at least 3 years and 6 months old. You must enter the requested information such as your child’s birth date, age or grade level in the “Note to Instructor” field.  Please adhere to all posted age or grade level requirements or your registration will be invalidated.
