Most programs are open to North Haven residents and non-residents.  You may register for classes at our website, in person or by telephone. Phone registrations will not be taken prior to 10 a.m.  See program listing for details. All programs are free unless otherwise indicated.

As a courtesy to others, you must call a staff member in the Children’s Department if your child is registered for a program but cannot attend.

Failure to do so will result in your child being dropped from future programs.
