School Age Care
We understand under the current conditions, the school district will be moving to complete remote learning online. Through the first quarter of the 2020-21 school year there will not be any in-person classes.
The announcements themselves might bring a sense of uncertainty and fear that children will not be able to balance school work while parents also balance their home and work life. Based on how the school district will be bringing children back to school, it is our goal to give you extended options to ensure your children’s learning stays on the right path. We are here to help as we fill in the gaps of these remote learning days or maybe to even provide a full time in class Kindergarten.
We would like to offer three different kinds of care options for you and your Kindergartener to 10-year old:
UKids – Presidents Circle: Part Time School Age Care
Presidents Circle will offer unique scheduling around you and your family’s needs. They provide convenient block scheduling for up to 30 hours a week. Choose from customizable blocks like 7am to 11am, 11am to 3pm, 3pm to 5pm, 5pm to 7pm, any amount of days of the week, Monday through Friday. If you have different schedules on Monday and Thursday’s, this would be the option for you. It allows for flexibility at its fullest to allow for a perfect care schedule while you work or study. Your child will be welcome to bring a device from home to work on distance learning assignments as we recognize these days are still for remote learning. Our established teachers are here to aid the child, along with your child’s elementary teachers, to strengthen your child’s ability to finish coursework and homework each day.
