Before and after school care.
Wishing Well Preschool and Childcare offers before and after school care for those families with school-age children. These children are transported by means of Wishing Well van or walked to or from their appropriate grade school. The van is equipped with approved care seats, booster seats and seat belts as appropriate to the children’s height, weight and age. Afterschool programs offer a variety of activities designed towards school age children. Wishing Well Preschool and Childcare also provides a Homework Club on Mondays-Thursdays for children in First through Fourth Grade. This program gives children an opportunity to complete homework in a quiet atmosphere with the assistance of an adult helper. Children not participating in Homework Club are offered activities including art, construction, relaxation time and games. An afternoon snack is available to the children when they arrive after school as well. During the summer we provide full-day care for school-age children. This program offers a camp like atmosphere packed full of field trips, crafts, sports and library time. Our summer program offers an opportunity to interact with peers and encourages friendships, while still providing the security of a safe environment for your child. Specific information regarding field trips, themes and activities is available to parents in early spring. The summer school-age program is only secondarily educational, with its primary focus on day-camp activities and frequent field trips. In addition, we’ve incorporated a Spanish program for children participating in our summer program. Your child will be introduced to familiar Spanish greetings, colors and numbers, terms for family members, body parts and much more. They will learn all of this in a fun, relaxed atmosphere with music, movement, games and puzzles. They will also have the opportunity to discover the Spanish culture through books and stories.
