Before and After School Care
Valley Child Care & Learning Centers provide parents with an option for high-quality day care, as well as infant, toddler, and preschool programs in the Phoenix area at convenient hours and affordable prices. At some locations, we are pleased to also offer before school care and after school programs for children in kindergarten up to eight years old. Our before and after school services take the pressure off of parents who have early morning appointments, are working overtime, or have other errands to run. Drop your child off as early as 6 a.m. and we will take care of the rest!
A balanced breakfast prepares your son or daughter to be focused and ready to optimally learn. Our before school programs start by serving your child a free meal that is balanced and nutritious. Studies show that children who eat a healthy breakfast are able to do better in school, so all of our meals are homemade and meet all of the USDA daily nutrition requirements. Each meal is created with healthy portion sizes and your growing child’s nutritional needs in mind. Sample breakfasts include options like Cheerios, apple slices and milk/water or bagels, oranges and milk/water.
After breakfast, your child will participate in a variety of group activities at our learning center, including:
- Outdoor Play Time (weather permitting)
- Fun Games
- Arts and Crafts
- Group Story Time
- Math Drills and Writing
- Hands-on Craft & Science Experiments
- Help with homework (for older kids)
Valley Learning Center’s before school programs also include taking your child to their school as well as bringing them back to our center for after school programs at some locations. We are proud to offer a comprehensive early-morning curriculum that includes a free meal and morning activities as well as homework help, arts and crafts, and a snack after school.
With daily drop-in rates available, you’ll never have to stress over running last-minute errands, finishing up projects at work, or juggling the rest of your hectic schedule. Each of our learning centers are Arizona DES certified. Contact your local Valley Child Care and Learning Center for a free tour today!
