A Note From Our Director:

Soon after the birth of my second son, I started to consider returning to work. Daycares and preschools were plentiful for that stage in our lives.

But when my boys entered elementary school, there weren’t many options for the kind of after school care I felt they deserved. There was a “family” center, where the staff was mostly comprised of students, and martial arts programs with little supervision other than brief group instruction.

I wanted my children in after school programs that would enrich their lives. A program that would give them the same priority as I would give them. A clean environment where my children would be safe with lots of diverse extracurricular activities that would spark their creativity and help them escape the stress of modern life. I also felt they should have access to a certified teacher to help them complete their homework and help expend their limitless energy.

I realized that when I returned to work, it would be to build the ultimate after school center, designed specifically to enrich children’s lives and give parents peace of mind of their child’s care and development.
