Center Based 

Through our Center Based program children attend classes for 3 ½ hours on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday during the school year.  This year we have added full day sessions at our Laurelville Center and New Lexington Center.  Full day sessions run 5 days a week and are in session from 9:00 to 2:55 each day.
