Parents can be assured that their children are in a safe and fun environment where every child is a star! Our programs will strive to assist participants and families with acquiring the tools essential to be healthy, thoughtful, and successful members of the community. Students will receive academic assistance, participate in recreational games and activities, character development and served a healthy snack daily.
