Valley Child Care & Learning Centers provides parents with an option for high-quality day care, as well as infant, toddler, and preschool programs at an affordable price and convenient hours. At some of our Phoenix locations, we are pleased to also offer before-school care and after-school programs for children in kindergarten up to 8 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!

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 playtime (weather permitting)
  • Fun games
  • Arts and crafts
  • Group story time
  • Math drills and writing
  • Hands-on craft and science experiments
  • Help with homework (for older kids)

Valley Child Care & Learning Centers’ before school programs also include taking your child to their school as well as bringing them back to our center for after-school programs. 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 & Learning Centers for a free tour today!
