Before and After School Care Programs for Children in Houston, TX
Striving to Offer Premier Before and After School Care
In today’s day and age, flexible schedules are more important than ever. Unfortunately, many parents do not have the benefit of a flexible work schedule and have a hard time making sure their children get to school on time. At Yorkshire Academy, we want to be part of the solution. We offer before-school care for families who need to drop off their children early, as well as after-school care for families who need care until 6 p.m. Flexibility is key at Yorkshire Academy, and we welcome all eligible families to ask about our program.
What Is Safecare?
Safecare is how we refer to our before and after-school care programs. This program is geared toward working families who need earlier drop-off times and later pick-up times to accommodate work schedules. We allow drop off as early as 7:00 a.m. and pick up as late as 6:00 p.m. Let us be part of your support system!
What to Know About Our Before and After School Options
Safecare is available to children of all ages. Younger children will be grouped together to enjoy plenty of hands-on activities that continue their education outside the classroom. They’ll also have time for a snack and lots of time for playing outside. Older children can use before and after school time to work on homework with help from one of our teachers. Once the work is done, students will have plenty of time left over for playing with friends. Each Safecare program is taught by a Yorkshire Academy teacher, so you can trust that your child is getting the guidance they deserve, even beyond school hours.
Providing Nurturing Care on Holidays
To accommodate working Safecare families, we offer childcare on several school holidays, including the Monday and Tuesday of Thanksgiving week, several days over the winter holidays, and four days during Spring Break. We also welcome Safecare families to take advantage of our program during the weeks between the end of the school year in May and the beginning of our summer program. Please keep in mind that in order to prepare for the start of school, the campus is closed to all students a few weeks prior to the first day of school in August.
Continuing the Fun After School
Many Safecare families also take advantage of our private elementary after-school program. The Memorial Afterschool Program, or MAP, truly has something for everyone. During this time, children have the chance to explore new topics or delve deeper into one of their current interests. Program topics might include:
- Tae Kwon Do
- Musical Theatre
