School Age Programs

For young ones ages 5-12, our School Age Program is a nationally accredited program providing safe, supervised care before and after school and full time when school is out. With scheduled activities, field trips, community service projects and homework support, this is one smart option for your childcare needs! We focus on personal, social, physical and cognitive development with a healthy dose of teamwork and sense of community.

Highlights include:

  • Before and After School Care (ages 5-12 yrs)
  • Summer Camp and School Holiday Care
  • Potentially:
  • Fees based upon total household income
  • Transportation may be available to/from school
  • Parent Involvement and Advisory Board
  • Promotes multicultural appreciation, literacy, recreational activities, and the arts
  • Accreditation & DoD Certification


(Our programs are accredited through the Council on Accreditation (COA). COA works closely with The National After-School Association (NAA), which is the leading voice of the afterschool profession, dedicated to the development, education and care of children and youth during their out-of-school hours.

Department of Defense (DoD) Certification

The military equivalent of state licensing, DoD Certification represents verified compliance with standards regarding fire, health, safety, developmental programming, child abuse prevention, funding, and staff training. Our Child and Youth Programs are certified by DoD each year. As a result of the strict oversight and adherence to standards, along with the trained staff and quality curriculum, our programs have been recognized as a model for the nation.
