We will have Mr. Jermaine for Kids’ Play and Fitness every Thursday afternoon (unless field trip scheduled), Mad Science every Wednesday afternoon (except short weeks) and most of our Field Trips will be Tuesday afternoon. The field trips that are inside will be in the afternoon so we can swim in the morning and have fun in the afternoon if it rains. If they are outside trips then they will be in the morning. On Fridays we will have PJ days and will watch a movie in the afternoon or swim a second time (weather permitting). It’ll be Kids’ Choice. This will also be the one day that kids can bring an electronic device if permitted by their guardian.
