Our School-Age Program

Guiding children to experience their world and pursue their interests

Our school-age programs include before- and after-school care, back-up care for school holidays and school closing days, and summer day camp. We provide school-age children with the opportunity to live, learn and socialize in a relaxed setting outside of school.

We offer a wealth of enrichment activities that engage the interests of school-age children. You may find school-age children creating a magazine or a video, playing chess or shooting hoops, tutoring each other or forming a club. Teachers are there alongside, facilitating, guiding and understanding that learning does not have to take on the tone and texture of a school day but rather be filled with fun.

What Parents are Saying

Our greatest advocates are also our closest friends.

"You impressed me on my first visit and I continue to appreciate your wisdom supporting so many young lives at the center. You know your employees and the children well enough to form solutions that support each family. Thank you."

Learning at Home

Puppetry with Infants and Toddlers

You Will Need:

Either purchased or homemade colorful puppets (make sure they don't have small choke size pieces that might come off).


Look into the eyes of your baby, hold the puppet on your hand and have the puppet softly touch and sing or talk with your baby. Wait for your child to make sounds or words back and then continue the "conversation."


Use the puppet as a fun way to encourage language.
