DEAR Davenport-Perth EarlyON FAMILIES,

Welcome to Spring! We are looking forward to warmer weather and sunshine! As COVID restrictions have been lifted. We have begun a gentle re-opening for April to allow for the transition to a full in-person program model.

Important Notices - please be aware:

·       We will no longer be screening families who attend our EarlyON programs.  

·       We ask families to please self- screen before you come to a program. However, if you or your child are sick please do not come. This is one of the few protective measures left to reduce the spread of COVID. We have attached some information on self-screening and care. 994c-Screening-Questionnaire-Child-Care-Day-Camp-School.pdf (

 ·       We continue to encourage masks when indoors as a way to protect infants and young children who do not have access to vaccines.   

·       Families can also now register for two programs in April and attend any drop-in that does not require a registration. We have increased our capacity in a number of programs.  PLEASE SCROLL down to see our Program Calendar. 

·       We are also planning for a wonderful May through August of outdoor/backyard activities. We are just awaiting warmer weather!
