The purpose of Educare is to provide parents with an after school program where children are supervised in a sound environment. However, Educare is not simply another day care service. This well-rounded program incorporates quality features and upholds high standards, setting it apart from the more common daycare programs. Educare was developed with the intention to extend opportunities for students to learn, socialize, and create. Under the direction of a certified k-8 teacher and instruction of a qualified and well-trained staff, students participate in daily activities that include arts and crafts, fitness, free play, homework support, and technology. Additionally, students receive tutoring and academic intervention each day as needed. Healthy snacks are also provided daily.
