Our before and after-care programs go well beyond homework help. We support children in becoming the kindest, most capable, and most resilient version of themselves.
With regular outdoor time and planned indoor activities, our children experience a world of movement, dance and recreation.
Books allow children to enter a world of “make believe” and learn about new and exciting things.
Our programs use a research based curriculum that is individualized to every age, with planned activities that combine learning and fun to create happy, curious kids.
