I would like to acknowledge the hard work of your after school program tutors. I find them to be a great role model for the students, especially my son. They create a pleasant, helpful and safe environment. I appreciate the effort and time they provides and I hope they continue to influence the students to thrive for success.

Can I prorate the monthly fee into only the days that my child needs to go to afterschool?
No, unfortunately we cannot prorate the monthly fee into the days that accommodates your individual case. You have to pay the full month independently if your child comes to the program or not

If you decide not to have your child to continue in our program for one specific month. Your child looses her/his place in our program. There is a waiting list of families for their children to get into the program, and the next child in line will take your child's place. You may come back later and will have to wait if a spot is open for your child to be incorporated back into our program.

How does this program differ from other after school programs?
What makes us different is that our staff consists of young adults enrolled in college with an intention of working with children in their careers.

Our staff also includes educators with managerial and teaching experience in schools.
