School Age


Close to Home Childcare Center offers the perfect combination of fun, friendship, and learning for children attending school. Close to Home provides a safe, enriching before-school and after-school program. Close to home strives to provide an engaging environment where school-age children can spend time with friends before and after school. And to make it convenient for you, many schools also provide transportation to and from neighborhood schools. Our centers work with your school calendar and offer fun-filled programs during holidays and out-of-school days.

Close to Home School Age program helps school-age children develop a sense of who they are and what they can do. Musicians hold concerts, the children write plays, design costumes and props, We have 12 acres of outdoor play area to explore, play baseball, volleyball and go on Ecology walks or just watch for deer. We encourage children to be independent thinkers and to make choices in daily planning, thus encouraging independent learning. Of course we offer daily homework time and encourage our children to learn and get ahead for next year. We do this all thru exciting activities, hands-on exploration, and daily “funwork” time.
