Our school age program is home away from home for them. At school age, they still need some one to look after them. For meals and supervision. Our main school is Lowell school, but we also care for children from other schools, but we do not transport children to and from school. It is up to parents to get their child to day care after school.
They also have meals prepared for them, breakfast before school so they can work hard at learning what they need. Have snack when they return from school. We do non school days and half school days.
They have their own play area too, also a place to work on home work if needed. We do not use any electronic games, computers at all. Our toys they need to use their own mind, to pretend.
We work with food issues for this age group too.
