Life Kids is a well-equipped and fully staffed before & afterschool program. We are committed to providing a safe, structured, clean, and helpful environment for children in Kindergarten through grade 8.
As a before & afterschool program, children are dropped off by schoolbus or guardian, encouraged to complete their homework assignments, and guided in structured, age-appropriate activities. Tutoring is also available upon request.
We offer before & afterschool care five days per week from 7am until 6pm.
We offer a separate program from our Special Needs friends called our VIP Club, and a middle school environment that is created just for our older students. Please call or email us for more info!
Before Care: Monday through Friday from 7am – schoolbus pickup [ South Colonie Campus Only]
