    Spring has just arrived, but it’s actually a good time to think about after-school care for next school year.  Clays Mill offers an after-school daycare program each day that school is in session.  It is a great value and offers care until 6 pm each evening.  If you are interested, open enrollment begins on May 1st and applications are available on the school website under the families tab.  Spots are filled on a first-come, first-served basis so don’t delay.
