School Age Child Care  (Before & After School) 


School Age Child Care provides options to meet a family's need for Before/After School programs for school-age children.


Supported by an understanding of children's learning styles, interests, and PA Early Learning Standards, our curriculum is designed to provide activities that enhance cognitive, social, emotional, and physical development. Therefore, contributing to a child's success in school and throughout life. The curriculum follows Creative Curriculum and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics) supporting growth and development of youth in seven key learning areas: Literacy, Science, Math/Problem Solving, Arts, Social Competence, Fitness/Nutrition, and Technology. This curriculum supports a unique learning environment that stimulates a child's curiosity while reinforcing essential academic standards. 


School Age Child Care is affordable and offers financial assistance for families in need.
