Starting in the 2020-2021 school year Orono’s school age child care programs (Early Birds, OK Kids and Club Spartan), will be combining and will be located at Orono Intermediate School. This change supports our mission that Orono students will maximize their potential in life because of their experiences in Orono Schools. School age care is a critical and growing need for our families. Moving the program will allow us to serve more children, enhance the program and conserve resources. As we have studied best practices and local programs, most school age care programs are within school buildings. This program will reside predominantly in the common spaces of the Intermediate School. We welcome this opportunity to continue the tradition of quality and excellence for all Orono students.
