2014-15 Robin's Nest/Extended Day Survey

This year's Robin's Nest program has met the needs of many of our families.  We conducted a survey last spring and it helped us make the decision to extend the program from 3 PM to 3:30 PM.

This year we are looking at the possibility of offering an extended day option that would allow children to stay past 3:30 PM.  We are asking all families who will be in our 2014-15 morning drop off programs to complete a brief Robin's Nest/Extended Day Survey so that we can better understand the needs of our community.

Thank you!
