HGG is almost full! For the school year of 2014/2015 there are just a few spots left in the Penguin classes for children who are at least 3.5 or older and completely potty trained. The spots will be available on October 1 and offered on a full time (5 day per week) basis only. To sign up, please attend our Open House on Tuesday, September 9 at 6:30pm. During this event, you can tour the school and talk to the staff, current parents, and current children.

We will also be accepting applications for a wait list for all ages and future openings. See you there!
