Safe, Nurturing, and Engaging Care



For families requiring before and after-school childcare, our on-site Extended Day program operates daily from 7:00 am to 6:00 pm. This program offers students of all ages a rich and well-staffed program. Younger children enjoy a home like, project-based experience with abundant opportunity for outdoor play. Older students have supervised time to complete their homework as well as relaxed, open-ended time both indoors and out.

A structured before and after school program that begins at 7:00 A.M. and closes at 6 P.M. offers children creative activities before and after their school day. The nature of the program varies according to the age of the child.
