Even though this school year isn't over quite yet, we know everyone is excited for things to get back to normal next year (hopefully). Registration isn't open yet for Kids Club & Vacation Club (check back in about a month!), but registration is now open for a new Funland Preschool Play Program. With our friends Northmore Nursery School moving into Jefferson this September and so many of our families asking about programs for their younger children, we decided to offer a 2.5 hour daytime program for kids ages 3-5. This program bumps right up to Kids Club so if your child is 4+, you can also sign them up for Kids Club. Unfortunately we cannot allow anyone under the age of 4 to stay past 2:30 for Kids Club.

This program will be led by Northmore's own Ms. Amy and JYC's own Ms. Melissa.

Enroll at the Youth, Parks & Recreation office at 299 Decatur Road or online at http://bit.ly/ttypronlinereg if you already have an account set up with us. You will also need to complete the online pre-registration form:
