Our School-Age Program

Guiding children to experience their world and pursue their interests

We provide school-age child care for school holidays, school closing days, summer day camp, or when there is a need for back-up or emergency care. In our school-age program, we provide children with the opportunity to live, learn and socialize in a relaxed setting outside of school.

We offer a wealth of enrichment activities that engage the interests of school-age children. You may find school-age children creating a magazine or a video, playing chess or shooting hoops, tutoring each other, or forming a club. Teachers are there alongside, facilitating, guiding, and understanding that learning does not have to take on the tone and texture of a school day but rather be filled with fun.

What Parents are Saying

Our greatest advocates are also our closest friends.

"The Staff at backup is excellent. My son only goes 3-4 times a year, yet they know who he is when we get there. They are awesome. He has gone there since he was 2 and he's now 10 and still likes going there. "

Coin Sorting

You Will Need:

A pile of coins and cups, bowls, or plates for each denomination (optional)

Directions:

Review the value of each type of coin with your child. Then, ask her to sort your change according to value or size. With your child, take a trip to the bank to get coin wrappers. Once you bring them home, help her wrap the coins based on their value. Help her figure out what the total amount is and either take them to the bank to deposit into an account or figure out how to spend them.

Tip:

Do not allow children under 3 to play with money -- coins are a choking hazard. Make sure children wash their hands after touching coins.
