School Age


Trinity North's school bus stops at our center.

Effective for the 2019-2020 school year, we will only be accepting students from Trinity North Elementary School.

The School Age class is comprised of Kindergarten students through age 12. In our program, students are guided to move themselves about and seek those activities that interest them most. 

The School Age students play indoor and outdoor games, make crafts, build forts, and do homework. Breakfast is served before school transports; afternoon snack and an evening snack are served after school.

During the summer, the School Age students take frequent field trips, play in the sprinkler, work on long-term projects, construct art, build things, read Chapter books, and dive deep into topics than interest them. We listen to music and enjoy the sunshine! 

What to bring to our class:

  • Families are requested to bring in at least one seasonally-appropriate complete changes of clothes (including socks!), labeled with their child’s name. Besides toileting accidents, sometimes we get messy in our play, necessitating a change.


  • We encourage you to bring in pictures of your family – you can include any members of your family and even pets.
