Discover the Ultimate AfterSchool & Pick-Up Program for Children Ages 5-12!

As a working parent, your schedule simply doesn’t match that of your child. You can’t leave work early to pick up your kid after school, but you need to make sure your child is well cared-for, safe, and secure. So how do you handle those hours between the time school ends and the time you can get home?

Great question. And we have an even better answer:

I’m ready: Sign my children up for our after-school, pick-up program now!

At A Child’s Academy, we understand what it means to you to leave your child in the care of someone else. You need to know your child is physically, emotionally, and educationally cared for – our after school programs in Gainesville FL ensure just that.

That’s why A Child’s Academy is extending our services to include your elementary school kids.

ACA houses the Best After School Programs in Gainesville FL.

A Child’s Academy’s Before and After School Program supports the development of children’s emotional, social, physical and cognitive skills by referring to the five pillars of character: Respect, Trustworthiness, Honesty, Caring, and Self-Expression. It is through the promotion of these core values that children develop skills they will utilize for their entire lives.
