Before and after school activities, as well as a full time summer program, are offered for school-age children.  We recognize the unique needs of this age group by equipping their room with age appropriate activities.  A computer, building blocks, table games and craft materials are examples. During the school year, time is allotted for homework but the emphasis is placed on relaxing activities after a long day at school.  The schedule during the summer and school breaks include field trips, sports, crafts, and other group activities.
