Fishers Island, New York
 
Easter Update

We regret to say that due to health concerns and restrictions on public gatherings at this time, we have decided to cancel the Easter Egg hunt that was scheduled for Saturday, April 11th, 2020. 
We hope to see you again next year.

Summer Update

The Morning Program is still on schedule to start as planned on July 6, however, to allow families more time to determine their summer plans, and give us plenty of time to create a wonderful, safe program for our children, registration will open June 1. We are continuing to consider how Morning Program routines may be adapted, as well as changes to health, attendance and refund policies based on how conditions on Fishers Island evolve.  Updates will be posted here as well as on FishersIsland.net and emailed out to past participants.
