What your kids do after school is as important as what they do at school.

Our daily curriculum makes us a unique child care provider and sets us apart from others. We provide a mentoring relationship between your child and our caring staff that maximizes their personal empowerment, exploration and learning.

Our staff is dedicated to the healthy growth and development of children and all work very hard to make each of our program sites full of fun and learning.
