The Mission of the School Age Program is to provide a stimulating setting where children can explore, develop, and learn in a safe and secure environment at their own pace. The School-Age Program is accredited by the National School-Age Care Alliance. This National recognition shows our commitment to quality and continuous program improvement. The philosophy of the School-Age Program is based on the belief that all children are strong, powerful and competent individuals who are constantly learning and growing. The program is open to children ages 5 (as long as they are in kindergarten) to age 13 years. To enroll in the program a contract must be completed.  All forms must be completed correctly and submitted with a current copy of pay slips or LES’s. 

The program is broken down into 3 categories:

  • Before School only
  • After School only
  • Before and After School

Fees are based on your total family income and you are charged for the slot you are filling not the time in the facility. 

Those entitled to use this program are:

  • Dual military families
  • Single military families
  • 1 military member and 1 civilian
  • Contractors and any DOD personnel
