Our goal is to provide a safe, welcoming environment where children up to 10 years old can play, grow, and extend their learning. That’s why we offer a before and after-school club and full-day care during spring, summer, and winter breaks as well as on snow days. Your child will enjoy being a part of a club where he or she can finish homework, engage in group play and other creative activities that help them continue developing friendships, their sense of community, and responsibility.
Before & After School: K – 5th Grade
Friendships and fun. Learning and laughter.
Our school-age program offers the opportunity for children up to 10 years old to enjoy fun and educational activities while developing friendships after the school bell rings. Full-time care is available on snow days and during winter, spring, and summer breaks to accommodate your family’s needs and schedule.
After School Club
During the school year, our Before and After School Club is filled with fun and educational activities, reading time, our Homework Help Club, and outside exercise on our state-of-the-art playground to bookend your child’s school day. We provide a welcoming environment where kids can create and build friendships, stay active, and build confidence.
For families’ added convenience, busing to and from local schools is also available. During the school year, we provide safe transportation provided by qualified drivers to and from our school on our activity bus. Your child’s school may also provide public school transportation to our center on their bus route. Please contact a location near you for further transportation information.
If your child is enrolled in our After School Club, we offer Homework Help as a service to help free up your evenings for family quality time. With help from parents and teachers, we follow a Homework Report outlining what needs to be done each day. Our After School Club teachers will provide notes and feedback regarding homework progress each afternoon at pick-up time. While we cannot guarantee that children will complete each homework assignment before they depart, we will strive to provide the structure and support your child needs to complete his or her work.
School-Age Explorer Camps
Where New and Lasting Friendships Grow
Our Spring Explorers, Summer Explorers, and Winter Explorers school-age camps offer part-day or full-day care during elementary school break so your work schedule and family routine can stay consistent throughout the year.
- Our Summer Explorers program is for children who are kindergarten eligible* (or have completed a Young 5’s program) up to 10 years of age.
- Our Spring & Winter Explorers programs are for children attending Kindergarten through 10 years of age at the time of the program.
As an Explorer, your child will build lasting relationships, develop teamwork skills, and learn acceptance. Our Explorer teachers are energetic, outgoing, and eager to explore with your child! All teachers are certified in CPR and First Aid to ensure children’s safety.
Weeks are filled with fun outdoor and indoor activities, singing, creative crafts, water days to cool off in the heat in the summer, and plenty of exciting group games. Throughout the day, we provide a well-balanced breakfast, lunch, and snack. Our themed curriculum provides fun and educational outdoor, indoor, and seasonal activities.
As part of our Explorer programs, your child will spend their time exploring and taking field trips to local attractions! Our field trips are one of the most popular components of camps. Field trips may include:
- city and county parks
- science centers
- and so much more!
See your location’s Program Director for information in regards to enrollment, field trip destinations, and schedule.
*”Kindergarten eligible” means the child will be 5 years of age by September 1 of the calendar year following Michigan state legislation.
