Thank you for staying connected and supportive during this challenging time, as we endure the Pandemic together!
IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: TEMPORARY RETURN to VIRTUAL Programs!!!
Starting January 3rd our Macaulay EarlyON programs will be delivered virtually. We are trying our best to plan for outdoor programs at some poin late in January.
We understand that virtual is not always ideal, however with the rapid rise in positive COVID cases and the recommendations from Public Health officials, we are moving to a temporary online model for January, to try and keep everyone safe. However, there are many groups, parenting programs, and resources available for you and your children during this time.
Below you will find the program schedule for the first two weeks of January:
