Before & After School

Life Kids is a well-equipped and fully staffed before & after school program. We are committed to providing a safe, structured, clean, and helpful environment for children in Kindergarten through grade 8.

As a before & after school program, children are dropped off by school bus or guardian, encouraged to complete their homework assignments, and guided in structured, age-appropriate activities. 

We offer before & after school care five days per week from 7am until 6pm.

We offer a separate program from our Special Needs friends called our VIP Club. Please call or email us for more info!

Before Care: Monday through Friday from 7am – school bus pickup [ South Colonie Campus Only]
After Care: Monday through Friday 2:30pm-6pm


Transportation to and from schools is provided within the South Colonie  & Guilderland School Districts only.

We promise we will not make this call unless we feel it is necessary.

If the weather is deteriorating while your child is in our care and we feel it necessary to close for safety reasons – you will be notified via snn, phone, email and facebook and will need to pick up your child as soon as possible.
