Our before & after care program offers a convenient child care solution for working parents.  The program will be operated out of all ten elementary schools and our extended hours accommodate most work schedules.  While the before & after care programs adhere to a daily schedule, the atmosphere is fun and relaxed allowing the children time to explore hobbies, play games and engage in athletic activities.  We provide an elective homework club with adults supervising and assisting children in completing homework assignments on a daily basis.  Depending on the interests of the children, various other clubs will be offered at the schools including Music Club, Drama Club, Science Club and Newspaper/Literary Club.  The children are provided with a snack in the afternoon and taken outside every day weather permitting.  We offer care on a full-time, part-time and drop-in basis.
