Before- and After-School Care for K-5

We Welcome School-Age Kids, Morning and Evening

When you’re a working family with school-age children, finding reliable before- and after-school care can be hard to come by.

Our before- and after-care programs go well beyond homework help. We support children in becoming the kindest, most capable, and most resilient version of themselves. That means giving each child the space, encouragement, and materials they need to follow their passions. During before- and after-care, we create positive communities of friends with games, projects, creative arts, and plenty of playtime to keep kids happy, bright, and healthy.

What you need to know about Before and After Care

Before and After Care is provided to our scholars for a weekly fee. Before-care and After-care is located in the main elementary building at 2221 Democrat Road. Breakfast, tutoring, and homework time are provided during before-care. Dinner (4pm), tutoring, and homework time are provided during after-care.
