Registration Dates

We know the fall is on everyone's mind, and we have our fingers crossed that a robust fall season lies ahead. With our building still closed, we have made the decision to postpone fall Family Life registration, which was scheduled to happen May 10 + 13. We will inform you the moment it is rescheduled.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our building and are awaiting guidelines from the city and the state on how to do that as safely as possible. 

In the meantime, please don't hesitate to be in touch with any questions, and check out our daily virtual offerings (for kids and adults) here.
