Space is limited. Advanced registration required for all Homeschool Day programs. Admission is $12 per child, $5 per adult (one adult is free). Siblings may attend for free, however, if they wish to participate in the activities and take-home components of the program they need to be registered. To register, click here.

The way our programs are currently structured, we have one family group per station at a time. If there is another family you would like to do the program with, that is, do the activities together at the same time, please let us know when you register. Otherwise, we’ll assign you all to different stations so that we can maintain social distancing.
