Before and After School Child Care

  • Looking for a safe structured environment for your child after school?  PALS is the place to be.  Monthly themes, daily activities to choose from and being with your friends = GREAT TIME! Each afternoon your child will be able to pick the activity they would like to do.  Activities are geared to excite and extend your child's interest and learning development. Activities are craft center, games, kids & sports, hike & learn, science kids, kids explore computers, kids in the kitchen, Friday free day. Snacks are included in the daily routine. PALS does not transport kids to activities during the school year.
