If your child is not at one of the listed schools:

You can still bring her to our After School program. This is a great opportunity for socialization in a safe space with limited student numbers. Our small groups encourage girl empowerment and allow your child to do hands-on learning outside of the school day. Parents can have a bit of time to do some things for yourself - like run errands or take a break. If you choose to enroll your child, it’s the responsibility of the parent to drop the child off and pick them up at the end of the day.

We encourage parents, carpools, and family members to transport your girls to our after school program due to bus driver shortage, to provide your daughters with additional support, and give parents extra time to get stuff done due to inconvenient dismissal time. With this special request, we have extended our Tuesday and Thursday for no additional cost and will provide dinner on Tuesdays and Thursdays as well as waived our winter and spring break.
