After Care Program is Full

Program Looks to Hire Additional Staff 

The After Care program is not accepting new children at this time. The program has been looking to hire an additional adult to supervise children. When another child-care worker is hired, the program will begin to accept children again. If you know a responsible adult who might be interested in working in the After Care program, please pass on the application link.
