School Age

Making friends together...

Begin With Us provides an enriching and supportive before school and after school care program for school age children. If your child attends Begin With Us before school, he/she is provided with a nutritious breakfast and free play time before going off to school.

If coming to the center after school, your child is provided with an afternoon snack and dinner (if staying through the evening hours). In the after school program, your child will have the opportunity to work on homework and our staff are available if your child requires support to complete an assignment.

A wide variety of age appropriate activities for free-time are provided during afternoons at Begin With Us. Children can build with intricate, inter-connecting blocks, sit quietly while reading stories, play outside in our spacious yard, dance to hip-hop music, participate in indoor dodge ball, or work on a challenging computer game.

To accommodate working parents, school age children may attend the center when the public/parochial schools are closed for snow days, snow delays, holiday breaks, in-service days and the entire summer!
