Our before school morning program provides a place they can take their child that is safe and fun. It helps start their day at school on a positive note. Readying their minds and emotions to successfully begin their day. Breakfast will not be served in the Before School Program, however you may send your child with a nutritious snack/meal.
After School Care
Our after-school program provides the opportunity for each child to do their homework assignments and seek assistance when needed. We offer a variety of age-appropriate supervised activities such as games, athletics, arts & crafts that encourage free play and creativity.
