    2021-2022 TOTS Program Information

    The TOTS is open from 6:45 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.  TOTS enrollment has limited space and a selection process for placement is used to fill the TOTS classrooms.

    The TOTS Program Lead is available to personally conference with each family to discuss their unique child care needs. Once a family is enrolled, we would ask a commitment to being your full-time child care provider. If the family would need to withdraw from TOTS, a written 30 day notice to the Program Lead and the Student Support Programs business office is necessary.
