Our mission is to provide a safe and fun environment for children ages 3 through 5th grade. Our middle of the day care for ages 3 and 4 is called Cool Cubs and our before and after school program is called Cool Kids. At Cool Kids/Cubs we, play, do assorted crafts, make friends, play outside, read, learn and grow! During the summer we get to go on field trips every week, play outside and have relay and team games! It has never been more fun to be a Cool Kid or Cool Cub!

What do parents have to say about Cool Kids? 

I wanted to write and tell you what a wonderful program you offer and how much it has meant to us this school year! Jayce has grown in so many ways this year. I have loved hearing him share the stories of games he’s played, jokes he’s learned and new friends he has made (older and younger). We feel this after-school program has been more of a mentorship for Jayce and he will miss attending Cool Kids next year as he will be in 6th Grade.

Keep up the great work and thank you for being a positive light for these kids each and every day!
