  • Care provided during school closings, school delays, and closings.
Our program provides safe convenient care for your child before and after school hours, and during school breaks and closings.
School-age children have limited outdoor time during the school day. Therefore, opportunities to run, do sports and play outside are important to meeting the overall developmental needs of children in this age group.

A healthy snack will be provided upon arrival time from school. A “quiet” area for homework will be available in addition to other activities, which will curb rambunctious behavior.

Blocks of free-choice time will encourage self-sufficiency, development of friendships, sound decision-making and problem-solving. The classroom will have many “self-selections” of activities, experiences, and materials for children to choose from.

Before School Program

The Before School program provides a morning program for children beginning at 6:30 until the school bus arrives. Each child will be offered breakfast and quiet activities until their buses arrive.

After School Program

The After School program begins at the end of the school day when children arrive by bus and ends at 6:00 p.m. A weekly planned curriculum will be posted that facilitates activities, outdoors time, snack, and allotted homework time.

School Closings/Holiday Care

We will provide care during school breaks, inclement weather and in-service weather and in-service day closings. We will keep children busy through fun activities and field trips. A separate form will be posted with the additional fees for such incidents.

Our Beliefs:

  • Each child is a unique individual
  • By providing children with developmentally appropriate programs that focus their process of learning, they enjoy successful experiences
