Before and After School Programs

Our before and after school programs provide a safe, engaging and structured environment for students after school.  Most are located at local elementary schools.

ForFamilies_BeforeAfterSchool_LandingEngaging Activities

Our before school programs give children a supervised place to prepare for the day.

Our after school programs feature a full hour of homework help supervised by certified teachers. Quite often, it’s enough time for a child to finish assignments, giving families more time to spend together in the evening. Our daily after school schedule also includes:

  • Physical activities based on the acclaimed Sports, Play and Active Recreation for Kids (SPARK) curriculum
  • Healthy snacks
  • Arts and crafts
  • Structured play designed to appeal to children with varied interests

Dedicated Staff

In addition to certified teachers, program staff includes professionals who typically hold 2- or 4-year degrees in child development or education, or are studying to be teachers.

CONVENIENT LOCATIONS

Program serves students in grades K-6, depending on location. Check your child’s school below to view locations and times.
