What Parents Are Saying

I no longer have to leave work in the afternoon and drive from one end of town to the other to pick up my children from school and take them to music, dance, or karate classes. ARTS Afterschool offers everything from after school pick-up and homework assistance, to music, dance, visual & martial arts classes that are taught by professionally trained, well-educated people who care about children and want to see them succeed.  ARTS Afterschool:  Where Children learn the Arts & the Staff has a Heart!

Mom of Two

“As an over-protective, single parent, who works full-time to ensure that my children are well-educated and well-rounded, I was looking for an after-school program that offered more than just pick-up services and baby-sitting. I found it with ARTS Afterschool.  ARTS has been an absolute blessing to my family. The after-school pick-up service & homework assistance, combined with a wide variety of enrichment activities allows me to rest a little easier knowing that my child is in a trusted and nurturing environment all while being exposed to a variety of enrichment activities.”

“I was stressed out trying to find extra-curricular activities for my children that sparked their interest, matched our schedules, and fit into my budget. We found all that and more at ARTS Afterschool. The services offered by ARTS (i.e. after school pick-up, homework assistance, music, dance, visual & martial arts) save parents time, money, and stress. Big THANKS to Ms. Carla, Ms. Alicia, and the rest of the staff at ARTS Afterschool.”
