School Age Care
Caring for kids before and after school
Adventure Club school age care program is designed to meet the needs of working families by providing high quality child care before and after school for students preschool through grade 5. All-day care is offered on non-school days and in the summer at select sites. Drop-in child care may also be available.
We offer a separate Spin program in the summer for students entering grades 4-7. During the school year, Spin programming for older students is offered where registration of fourth and fifth grade students meets the minimum enrollment requirement.
A variety of activities in a youth-friendly atmosphere to match the interests of each child is the hallmark of this daily program that focuses on curriculum, emotional, social, physical and intellectual growth. Projects incorporate learning opportunities across the curriculum—reading, math, science, health and physical education. The curriculum is also infused with social skills development, people and cultures, dramatic play, and arts and crafts. In addition to this, off-site field trips and special events take place throughout the year.
