At PACES, we approach each child as an individual with their own talents and one-of-a-kind needs. We consider it a privilege to take care of your child and we will strive to do our very best to see they are loved, respected, and happy, and that you, as the parent, are satisfied.
WE PROMISE TO PROVIDE
OUR GROUP LEADERS
PACES recognizes the importance of having quality, educated individuals working with our children. Our Group Leaders know how important they are to your child's growth and development.
Our goal is to create a warm, open environment where students feel confident and comfortable. We want them to have a positive atmosphere where there are many opportunities available. Our Group Leaders will provide options for indoor and outdoor activities, as well as one on one tutoring and help with homework. Our staff understand the importance of positive guidance and working with our students to solve conflicts. We ensure a "bully-free zone" where each child will feel safe and comfortable. Our staff is trained in School-Age care, as well as CPR, 1st Aid, and Playground Safety. They will work hard to make sure your child is happy and they are always available if you need anything.
QUALITY AFTER SCHOOL CARE
Each child will have fun in a comfortable, bully-free zone, where he/she can spend time with friends, do fun, engaging activities, and work on homework so you have more time as a family at home.
PACES believes that children will develop a strong sense of self in a comfortable, safe environment. In order to do that, our staff works with each individual child to ensure that they are happy and feel important each day. Our staff monitors social situations daily to ensure that children are not being bullied or pressured into activities they are not comfortable. We will not tolerate inappropriate language or behavior toward another child or staff member. We will work hard to help children learn the tools to good, positive communication, as well as how to successfully work through conflicts that may arise.

Upon arrival, all students will receive a nutritional snack that meets the USDA standards. Children will be divided into groups (based on their age) and will have opportunities for planned indoor/outdoor activities, time to work on homework, as well as down-time to socialize with their peers. Each week our Group Leaders will implement a lesson plan with teacher directed and child-directed activities in Arts & Crafts, Science, Reading, Music, & Sensory activities. We also see the importance in physical activity, & children will have opportunities to spend time outdoors participating in gross motor activities, group games, & sports activities.
Each of our groups is led by a Group Leader, who is qualified and trained in caring for school-age children. They are CPR & 1st Aid certified and have been trained in Playground Safety as well as Discipline and Behavior Management. They recognize and understand the unique qualities that school-age children possess and they have the skills needed to nurture and grow these young minds.
