The Little Tikes program is for Infant thru rising Kindergarteners. Our infant and toddler program is a predominantly extended day program. For our two year olds through rising kindergarteners we offer a choice of half, full or extended day options. Please speak with the Director regarding these and other options. Our Explorers Program, for rising first through rising sixth grade students, offers a choice of half day or extended day, with lots of flexible options. Arts and crafts, swimming, and other fun activities round out the afternoon for our extended day campers. Emmanuel under the Lights, for rising second through eighth grade, is a partial-day camp.
