We know how important it is for you to have safe, convenient, affordable, and quality childcare while you are at work or going to school. We offer a planned and comprehensive program designed with your child and family in mind. Our SAC program maintains the highest standards for the safety and wellbeing of the children enrolled. The program is planned, facilitated, and managed by caring staff members who are trained to meet the needs of children and provide positive adult role models. All staff members complete a background check. Safety is one of our primary objectives but that does not mean your child will not have fun. The program will include: arts and crafts, sports, indoor and outdoor games, team building, music and drama, cooking, science & technology, gardening, and other creative activities.
The main goal of our School Age Care Program is to provide a happy, safe, and structured environment for children before and after school. Our program provides children with a comfortable transition from the school to the non-school part of their day. We strive to make the non-school environment one that allows the children time to relax and enjoy themselves while partaking in a variety of structured activities. Transportation is provided to Flour Bluff Elementary and Flour Bluff Middle School.
Hourly Care is avaialble during our program hours. Pre-registration is required and all requests must be made online at https://myffr.navyaims.com/wbwsc/corpuscyms.wsc/wbsplash.html?wbp=1.
