Meeting the Needs of Claremont Families

Available Child Development Programs for children from Preschool through 6th grade:

Our experienced staff provides a balanced selection of fun and enriching activities which include supervised outdoor play and organized games, art, language, music, cooking, math, science, dramatic arts, computers, field trips and nutritional snacks.

Due to limited enrollment in some of the Child Development Programs, it is suggested that parents contact the Child Development Office to obtain information about the registration process.
