We drop-off and pick-up students daily and provide care for when they are out of elementary school. Our goal with the Enrichment Kids Program is to provide services that will give your student dance lessons, athletics, art and homework time so the that when parents pick up their students at the end of the day, all lessons and homework is done, which, hopefully will give families more time together in the evenings.
