Fall Options for School-aged Care

As summer transitions to fall, local schools are set to welcome students back on Wednesday, September 2nd. This return is structured around a COVID plan that incorporates a learning model with both in-person and remote learning. With more than 20,000 students enrolled in our area, thousands of working parents with school-aged children will be looking for daycare options that can accommodate school remote schedules and help with tutoring and activities.
