Hourly Childcare, Late Nights & Weekends
Our unique childcare solution offers a safe and fun play space for hourly drop-in care during the day and evening and on days when many other schools are closed.
Unlike other preschool programs, our parents have greater flexibility with their pick-up times. As an added bonus, we incorporate Spanish into the daily instruction for all ages.
After School
We provide transportation from many local schools. Let us know if we can help by picking your child up and bringing them here.
