We believe that play is an essential part of a child’s day. This time allows children to explore their surroundings, cultivate interests, build friendships, and relax from what can be a challenging day at school.


 Visual Arts ◊ Drama ◊ Music ◊ Dance

Artistic expression is a fun release, and helps our students experience culture in many ways. It is also a connection to a child’s emotions, and helps our staff create strong bonds with the ABACUS students!


 Physical Activity

Throughout the day, energy builds up in children that must be released. If children are not able to physically exert themselves, this energy can manifest into negative behavior. We offer children ways to move, and exercise which are healthy for the body and mind.


 Cooking ◊ Science ◊ Crafts
Technology ◊ Mind Work ◊ Building

These activities and more are just a portion of what our staff offers our students! We pride ourselves in keeping the children engaged!



In between school, work, appointments, activities, and more, finding time for homework is difficult. At ABACUS we set aside time for students to work on homework, with access to the help and materials they need to be successful. Our staff members allow time for and can assist students with their homework.


 Social Responsibility

We take a child’s role in society seriously. The ABACUS experience helps strengthen our children’s independence and allows students to increase their conflict resolution skills. Our staff incorporates many areas of social skills into their everyday plans. We find that ABACUS students succeed in areas such as courtesy, kindness, and honesty.



ABACUS hires Lead Childcare Providers, Assistant Childcare Providers, and High School Aides.  All levels of employment are based on education and experience.  All of our staff have CORI check and are required to hold current CPR/1st Aide certification.  Many of our staff have Associates, Bachelors, and Masters Degrees.  Most of our college level students are majoring in education.



Our staff is here to create a comprehensive before and after school environment for you and your children. To make this the best experience it can be, and to serve our students’ the best we can, we are constantly communicating with our program families, classroom teachers, principals and more. We welcome your comments and your questions.
