Before and After School

The Before and After School activities are designed to provide quality care for school-age children in early morning and later afternoon hours while parents must be away at work. Activities include recreation and sports, arts and crafts, games, reading, music, films, time to finish school assignments, an occasional field trip, and just "free time" for the children to pursue their favorite interests.
