We are working in partnership with the Madison Metropolitan School District to provide full school day programs for school age children at Lapham Elementary (1045 E. Dayton) beginning September 8. This program is designed to meet the evolving needs of students and parents during this unprecedented time. We are excited to continue supporting families by offering full school day care that includes academic support for virtual learning, fun enrichment activities, and social emotional learning.

For us to provide a high quality After-School Program, we maintain a ratio of 1 teacher to 10-12 children, a nourishing snack, and a variety of cooperative play and learning opportunities for your child. Our program is child centered. It allows time for quiet play and reading, active and outdoor play, field trips, and both small and large group and individual activities. Activities are also offered in the areas of arts and crafts, construction, small manipulative toys, games, dramatic play, science, computer, and cooking.
