School-age kids are both independent and social, eager for structured learning as well as time to do their own thing. We provide both! Our friendly and flexible before and/or after school program provides time for schoolwork, learning activities, and play.
We also offer a fun summer program for school-age kids at Merry Moose Childcare and Preschool 3 in Richmond.
Much more than childcare, the goal of our school-age programs is to have a positive influence on your child’s school performance by encouraging a lifelong love of learning and healthy social skills. Teachers are available to help students complete homework and provide fun educational activities that continue to build your child’s independence and self-confidence.
Our before and/or after school-age program in Richmond is equipped for children between the ages of 5 and 8.
The Merry Moose school-age curriculum is created to meet the unique needs of each child. We make learning fun, with a focus on strengthening their literacy, math, science, and social-emotional skills. Parent conferences are held twice a year to share formal feedback with families.
Children learn at different rates and in different ways, and we encourage the process versus praise the result. Our school-age program is well-balanced, with time to complete homework, participate in both independent and teacher-led activities, and socialize with peers. Weather permitting, your child will go outside each day for free play and some structured activities.
Merry Moose Childcare and Preschool offers care for students before school (beginning at 6:00 a.m.) and after school (until 6:00 p.m.). We also have an all-day summer program.
