 LAMP is not able to provide indoor stroller parking for our programs.  Bars have been installed along the outside walls to lock your stroller/wagon outside.  You are advised to bring a bicycle lock with you to secure your stroller. If you do not have your own bike lock, there are a few extras that we are able to lend out, in the Early Years Office in room 101.  We kindly ask that you do not park your stroller in front of the accessible entrance.



 LAMP is a scent free building.  We ask all participants to not wear perfume or other heavy scents.  Please cooperate with us in making this a safe and healthy environment for everyone.
