“The Club has been a tremendous help to my family. I can safely leave my children there for a very affordable price. I like the positive attitudes of the staff…the homework power hour, field trips, and the art program”


“The staff are positive role models. I drive my son to an out of district school specifically because of the positive environment the club provides. I will keep my son in the club until he ages out and at that point I suspect he will be working there the summer before he goes off to college”


“I like the extended hours, the sports, the field trips and safety!”


“The fact that my son has fun and the personal help with homework.”


“What I really like is how the staff empower and build up the children’s self-esteem through encouragement and the programs offered.”


“My child has opportunities that I can not afford for my child…participate in the Grammy Camp”
