Do you need a safe, supervised environment for your child to start or end the school day? We can help! Our school age before & after care programs are designed to meet the social, recreational and educational needs of your child – with enrichment activities such as arts and crafts, soccer, STEM, cooking, and yoga– along with homework support.
So while you’re at work, you can feel confident that your child is safe, productive and having fun. During school breaks, emergency closings and summer months, we offer full-day options with enrichment specialists, field trips, on-site entertainment, games, projects, and more.

This program is available for students at Farrell Elementary School.

What Parents Say
“Since Dwight has been at the FELS’ After School Program at Moore Elementary he gets his homework done and plays outside so now when we go home, things are calmer and I can get him to bed at a decent hour.
