Participants will learn about music, food and cultures from around the world as well as the arts. They can have the opportunity to become the next Children's Place Idol and more. A full list of all 10 weekly themes is available online at

Center hours are 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday. Special childcare arrangements are available before the June 18 summer program start date, and regular learning programs are available for children aged 15 months to 5 years.
