Before/After School Care & Summer Care

Before-care and Aftercare will not be provided at this time.

Need childcare before and after school and in the summer? We have you covered.

We understand that it is challenging to coordinate work schedules with school schedules.  We provide before and after school care, as well as summer care, to alleviate your scheduling worries and ease your mind that your child is happy, safe, and cared for.  During the school year, our child care center is open in the mornings from 7:00-8:00am and in the afternoons from 3:00-6:00pm.  In summer, our child care center is open all day from 7:00am-6:00pm.  During the school year, it is also open on most half day dismissal days until 6:00pm.  Before and after school care, plus summer care, are located at The Warrior Zone in our Lower School.

The Warrior Zone is ready to help!
