Our desire is to develop a child care, where our children will consider it as their home away from home. We strive to keep our students safe, help working families and improve academic achievement. Collectively, we aspire to incorporate entertaining activities for our students to correlate with what they're learning during the regular school day – an extension of their learning process while having fun.
The After School Care Program Manager, Mrs. Maria Lara, will supervise activity leaders that have been screened by Miami-Dade County Public Schools to work directly with your children in smaller groups. A variety of activities, including homework assistance, indoor and outdoor games, music, and arts and crafts have been planned for your child's time in our program.
Each day a snack will be provided for your child after the end of the regular school day.
Upon registering your child, it is mandatory to obtain the student accident insurance issued by the district.
