Welcome to School District 197 School-Age Care!

School-Age Care (SAC) strives to continually improve and deliver a program that promotes an environment where children can explore and develop their creative, personal, physical, and ethical attributes; where strengths are fostered, active learning is child driven, their individual uniqueness is embraced and the fun and learning never ends.
We provide a stimulating environment for fun and adventure! Children will be encouraged to try new things and to develop positive relationships with peers and staff. We promote an atmosphere of trust and respect and strive to assist children in building strong self esteem!

School-Age Care programs offer childcare that creates a safe, warm environment where children feel secure and respected.
