Before and After School Program (room capacity: 15 - age ratio: 1-15 - age: 6 to 9 yrs)

Our Before and After School program offers children a safe environment before and after school hours. Parents can rely on a safe method of transportation/walk to the bus stops to local elementary schools. We also provide a Before only program. Please see Kindergarten Room for the schools we provide transportation and walk to the bus stop.

Each child is given healthy snacks before and after school, help with homework, fun programming, outdoor activities and opportunities to make new friends.

This program is offered from September to June (the school year). Care is provided for the children during PA days and any other school breaks and holidays. For the months of July and August, our Summer Camp is an ideal way for children to continue social and academic development.
