Before + After Care

All of your child’s needs can be met in the same building throughout the day. Rather than having to rely on a friend or family member, you can bring your child to school early or have them remain after!  In addition to that, students work on their homework after school before playing & doing other activities.  A teacher is available during this time to assist students with their work.

Cost is $4/hour and is billed monthly.
