School Age Childcare

We provide quality school-age child care throughout the school year and during school recesses. Our focus is on before-school and after-school care, back-up or emergency care for school holidays and closings, and exciting summer day camp programs. We provide a safe and pleasant environment with developmentally appropriate structured activities, free interaction and positive experiences for each child. Our goal is to give each child the opportunity to participate to his/her potential.

This programming is available for youth who are at least five years old through twelve years old and attending school.

We work closely with area schools, including IPS Schools #49, #63, #67, #74, #87, #90, Christel House and St. Anthony Catholic School.
