Before- & After-School Programs

School-age early education for 5-12 year olds

Even after school's out for the day, children need to be engaged in a comfortable, yet stimulating child care environment. That's where the Catch the Wave® Program comes in.

This innovative before- and after-school child care program allows kindergarten and school-age children to balance learning and fun through a variety of experiences. From homework help to fun physical activities, our early education program is designed so that everyone goes home happy.

Our areas of focus give your child endless opportunities to learn and grow.

Communicating with Others

KinderCare helps your child develop effective communication skills.

We provide opportunities to practice active listening, negotiation, compromise, and leadership through the Classroom Council; support teamwork on long-term projects; and encourage language and communication skills through literacy, drama, and music clubs.

Building Brain Power

KinderCare helps inspire your child to enjoy learning.

We provide experiences that develop your child's ability to problem-solve, observe, predict, and explore cause-and-effect relationships; provide opportunities to explore math relationships such as classification; and provide support and time to complete homework and school projects.

Developing Social Skills

KinderCare supports your child in developing healthy peer relationships.

We use club activities, the Classroom Council, group games, and events to develop leadership, planning, organizing, and team-building skills.

Growing a Healthy Body

KinderCare stimulates your child to stay active.

We build stamina through small- and large-group games; focus on endurance, balance, and strength during daily fitness activities; and promote the link between physical activity and proper nutrition in creating a healthy lifestyle.

Nurturing Creativity

KinderCare motivates your child to express creativity.

We encourage experimentation with color, shape, texture, design, and music; provide opportunities to build abstract concepts and problem-solving skills; and stimulate creative writing and expression through poem- and story-writing, performance, and word games.
