Before and After Care

  • Welcome to Challenger's Rocketeers: The Outstanding-Rated Before and Aftercare Program

    Our mission is to provide students with an inclusive child care program that is safe and nurturing in a comfortable environment. A culturally enriching program that promotes the physical, intellectual, emotional, and social development of each child; and a program that meets the highest quality of child care standards.

    Before Care is currently not being offered until further notice. Our Before Care program runs from 7:15 a.m. to 8:15 a.m. to provide care for those children whose parents need to be at work before the school opens at 8:15 a.m. Before Care children are greeted by our friendly staff who play games, help with homework not completed at home, and on some days do arts and crafts projects. 

    Aftercare is available from 2:45 p.m. until 6:00 p.m. The students are in groups (of no more than 20) according to their grade level. We run a 1:20 staff ratio. The children are provided with structured activities, changing every 30 minutes. They have snack time each day (provided by the parent), homework time, recess time, and one Special each day. The Specials include technology, art, Spanish, Math Wizards, Sci Guys, Wii fitness, and Friendship Club.
