Afterschool Program at The Caring Place

In the Afterschool Program at The Caring Place it is our first concern to get the children from school to daycare safely as we provide school pick-up service in the Champaign-Urbana area. When the children arrive, we start homework. We work one-on-one with them when they need help and we have a special homework table with dividers to allow concentration and to reduce distractions. After homework we eat snack, do art activities, and play outside (when weather permits). There are also three computers in the classroom!

Afterschool care is available for children up to age 12.
