When School’s Out For The Day, The Kids Will Play!
Growing Minds Prep Academy provides after school program for children attending Jerry Thomas Elementary, Limestone Creek Elementary, Jupiter Elementary, and Lighthouse Elementary.
Our after school program combines exercise, play, and homework time to fully occupy the child’s afternoon.
After a day at school, the playground at our childcare center provides activities that are fun and stimulating, while helping them develop their large and small muscle groups. After burning off energy on our one-acre playground, your child will enjoy a healthy snack, computer lab, and some entertainment activities such as board games, crafts, to give them a chance to relax. For those who need it, children with homework are given time to accomplish it and teachers are on hand to provide assistance.
When the public school is on break, you’ll be glad to know that Growing Minds Prep Academy provides a safe environment for the school age child whether it is for Half-Days (school district PDDs), a day, a week, or the entire winter, spring, and summer.
During these bigger breaks we plan specific field trips and curriculum designed to keep your child engaged and active!
At Growing Minds Prep Academy, we believe in preparing your child for their educational future as well as life. Conflict resolution training, developing a sense for community, and encouraging bonding and forming friendship activities are part of the daily routine.
