Message to our families: Our goal is to provide exceptional before and after care services to OFSD families in need of care for their child/children. We understand before and/or after care is vital to many working families. We are dedicated to successfully filling slots in an efficient manner along with ensuring a safe program for students by maintaining appropriate student to staff ratio. Families interested in Discovery Zone, will first register onto our Waitlist. If a slot is available, families will receive a Registration Confirmation receipt via email. This receipt confirms your slot in the program and additional program information will be sent by email shortly after. The additional program information is also provided below in the document box. We strongly recommend families complete their registration ahead of time, the school year prior. For example: For the 2021-2022 School Year, please register during the current school year, before the last week of May 2021. Registrations submitted later, risk more likely to be Waitlisted.
