Weekly Themes Offer Academics Mixed With Fun

Weekly K.A.V.E. Club themes keep learning fun and engaging. Your child’s in-class learning grows even while out of school, so they’re ready to enter the new year and excel with their friends.

Safety In The Sun For A Worry-Free Summer

Attentive teachers with walkie talkies are in continuous communication with each other; plus, they’re always near to keep a close eye on your child. Additional features like restricted access and security cameras let you know your child is safe for a fun, worry-free summer.

Your Child Feels At Home Among A Tight-Knit Team

Your child receives expert care from nurturing professionals at a 40-year-old program. This longevity, combined with average teacher tenure surpassing 10 years, creates a home away from home for your child.  

Cleaning Staff Keep Your Child Healthy

An onsite pro cleaning team means your child’s tools and spaces stay scrubbed and clean, keeping your child’s health a top priority and giving you worry-free peace of mind. Keep their immune system safe with effective cleaning measures.

Amazing Playgrounds & Indoor Gyms For Exercise

Every day there’s play, and where better to do that than on the playground? Age-appropriate areas offer your child safe spaces to challenge growing muscles and make friends. On rainy days, indoor gyms host obstacle courses that are so much fun.

Field Trips Show Your Child A World Of Possibilities

From museums to parks and more, your child gets to take in new sights and experiences at favorite local destinations. Stepping outside the usual gives your child opportunities to learn new things, and they have fun sharing the experience with friends.

Social Skills They Use For A Lifetime

Getting messy with new friends and playing team games exercises essential social skills your child needs in the classroom and out. Summer is most fun when it’s shared, and good friends give your child the memorable summer they deserve.

Trusted Accreditation Means You Are In The Right Place
