  • Is there care available for non-school days?
    • There is no After School Program available on non-school days.  We do offer award winning camps (voted top in the country) on many of the school holidays at an additional charge.  Participants of the After School Program will receive discounted pricing on any camps they sign up for.  We have 4 cost effective programs to choose from for summer that are just a few dollars per day.  It is important we offer our parents flexibility during the summer months so that they may experience other camps, vacations and special summer programs.
