Our exceptional before and after-school program combines guidance and security with independent exploration to give school age children the freedom and structure they need. They’re inventive, so we encourage dramatic play and arts and crafts. They’re adventurous, so we plan field trips, games and cooperate in community projects. They’re building social skills, so our teachers promote activities that foster teamwork. And they’re unique, so each student’s needs are considered, from help with homework to a quiet place to read. It’s a safe, secure place where your child will have fun and you’ll have peace of mind.
