    The Department of Education believes that centers should be open at least 4 days per week, 12 hours per week to provide children with consistent, ample extended
    learning time.



    Services to school-age children are limited to when school is not in session.




    Pre-K and adult activities may take place during school hours.



    These programs support No Child Left Behind compliance.
