Before & After School Program - Nicholasville, KY
Created for working families, our center opens at 6 AM and closes at 6 PM to provide children with a friendly place to go before and after school. We provide breakfast and an afternoon snack, as well as activities in the form of games, arts and crafts, outdoor play and media. Our designated homework time helps ensure your child stays ahead in his/her studies. We have pickup and drop off services for Jessamine County Public School transportation.
Kindergarten/First Grade (5-6 Years): This is the younger of our after school age kids. During the school year, we provide AM and Afternoon services. After arrival from school, children will eat a snack and then play in their learning centers. Staff work with children to ensure homework is complete. Arts and crafts activities are offered daily. Children also have outdoor/gross motor time.
School age (7-10 years): Upon arrival, school age children eat a snack and begin working on homework. Staff assist if needed.
