Registration Information 2019

VERY IMPORTANT NOTES ABOUT REGISTRATION

► Please be sure to talk with your child about what he or she wants to do BEFORE registration opens on March 29th. Have 1st, 2nd, and 3rd choices ready for each of the different time slots.  Some of our learning opportunities are very popular and close within minutes of the 9 am opening time. (The printed registration page is helpful for collecting this information.)

► Very often parents are waiting online for the registration page to go live at 9 am. Please note that you may have to refresh the page before being able to see and interact with the registration system.

If you are registering more than one child this process has been improved online this year. You will be able to go to the registration website and enter all of your children and then select their sessions.
