The CDL serves children from 2 years 9 months to 5 years of age. Any local family may enroll their children in either the morning or afternoon session. We typically enroll children in the spring and summer for the beginning of school in late August, but we sometimes have openings during the school year as well. We do maintain a waiting list. If you are interested in enrolling your child, please contact us for an enrollment packet. We would be pleased to talk with you about the program and answer any questions you might have
