School-Age Care For Grades K-5

Program Overview

The Explorer Club School-Age Care Program located at LILA’s Main Campus (K-5) is a before- and after-school age care program that provides quality care in a structured setting at each site. Please read the Parent Handbook and the IMPORTANT ADDENDUM.

Explorer Club offers a safe environment for your child to build positive social skills, to learn about conflict resolution, to explore team-building skills, and to grow lifelong friendships with other LILA students. Explorer Club also provides a structured homework time for students to be able to work independently or with one another.

Enrollment in the Explorer Club school-age care program is first-come, first-served, and there are limited spaces available each year.
