Being a part of your school community is important to us. We make sure your after school care program reflects your school community. We collaborate closely with each school we partner with to develop tailored programs that are a natural extension of school activities. We strive to uphold each school’s values and philosophies, and before we start a program we:

  • meet with school representatives to understand the requirements of the school and its community
  • collaborate to design a program that meets the school’s unique needs. We share what’s worked for others and the reasons why
  • implement a transition plan, communicate to families and get the program up and running with kids, staff and equipment

We don’t cut corners. All of our programs are compliant with the National Quality Framework, and are conducted by educational professionals who embrace each school’s values. If you would like to learn more, contact us today.
