Program Information:

Through the use of our 4 core values(honesty, responsibility, respect,caring), we provide a fun safe environment within the schools for the children both before and after school.  Our programs  serve children in kindergarten  thru 5th grade. Programs provide different areas for child initiated play including art, enrichment, building, quiet, dramatic play, games, and active choices. We also offer teacher led activities based on our exciting weekly themes.  The children have the chance to participate in science club, Junior Achievement, kidz fit(certain schools) and kidz lit within the program.  We offer healthy morning and afternoon snacks, no school day and early release care, and monthly swim trips to the YMCA. Children are engaged throughout the day in age appropriate activities, active games and outside time. Our program is a great opportunity for children to have fun, make new friends, and participate in activities.
