About Us

School-Age Care (SAC) programs are offered for children ages 5-12. Programs are designed to meet community needs, reinforce family values, and promote the cognitive, social, emotional, and physical development of children. SAC programs are accredited by the Council of Accreditation (COA).

School age children are separated by age into two categories: primary (ages 5-8) and pre-teen (ages 9-12). Daily activities feature age appropriate activities including art, science, drama, outdoor play, homework time, and more.
