Kindergarten through 6th grade
In this age group we offer pick-up and drop-off to elementary schools and junior high (up to end of 6th grade). After a long day of school, we have a lego station, boardgame area, an amazing arts and crafts section and a relaxing place to read and hang out. We go on amazing field trips in the summer and on days off from school. We also help this age put a scrap book together at the end of the summer to look back on our activities and the friends we have made. This age group is about making friends, relaxing after school and having fun.
