After School Program

Engineering Robot Car

You can count on us to transport your school-age child to and from school safely. Our transportation staff are certified annually with transportation safety training and our mini-buses are built for safety and have routine safety inspections.

Parents have the option of bringing children for transportation to school, after school or both. We also offer child care for teacher in-service days and holiday periods for an additional fee.

Children being transported to school need to arrive at the center before 7 am. Afternoon riders will enjoy a healthy snack upon arrival at the center, and then break up into a variety of small group activities.

  1. Age-appropriate seating and tables to meet children’s needs such as workspace to do homework and table-top activities;
