Innovation Learning


Your Voice. Your Choice. Your Program.

As educators, former teachers, principals, and parents, we make it our number one priority to build the optimum program for your school. We support the goals of our partners, our students, and our families to ensure that our programs are customizable, catering to each school’s unique need. By creating a customized, flexible approach to learning, children will learn skills at an individualized pace and be fully prepared for the journey ahead as a lifelong learner. 

A Truly Customizable Program

Our programs are based upon the premise that Innovation as a “set of skills,” can be nurtured, taught and practiced. These skills include curiosity, collaboration, associative and integrative thinking and a bias toward action and experimentation. This “innovative mindset” has been proven to improve social, emotional and academic outcomes for children. Children who master these skills are far better prepared than their peers and live a more successful, healthy and fulfilled life.

No two school communities are alike, and we work with and support the goals of our school partners, our students, and our families to ensure that we are catering to each. Unlike typical organizations that seek to establish a model that they dictate and then replicate, we are passionate about leveraging important before and after school time for the well-being of children. We feel that the best way to accomplish this is by offering programs that appeal to the specific wants and needs of each community. We listen to parents, children, and school administration to offer a variety of options and choices that are important to them. The result is a truly customizable program that each community can embrace and is proud to call their own.

A Comprehensive Program

While most before and after school providers come from either an early childhood or recreation background, as educators, our leadership team offers a unique understanding of the impact that seamless programs can have. Our expertise is far-ranging and includes Science, Technology, Engineering and Math teaching and curriculum, Physical Fitness programming, Social-Emotional Learning, and Psychology, which supports structured Play-Based programming. We also partner with some of the very best Enrichment providers to offer expanded opportunities such as band, orchestra, tennis, golf, karate, to name a few, to provide a comprehensive schedule of activities. We leverage this expertise to arrange a combination of programs in a way that creates the ideal for every community in which we partner.

A Unique Perspective

Innovation Learning is one of the fastest-growing before and after school programs in the country. Our leadership team consists of former teachers, principals, Department of Human Services licensing specialists, and school district administrators who also all happen to be parents. Our growth has been fueled by this unique perspective, which works to support the schools, families, and children.

Our Core Values

We Thrive on Innovation

An innovative mindset can be nurtured and is accomplished through intentional opportunities for creative problem solving, critical thinking, collaboration, and active communication among peers.

We Value Community

Our sites reflect the community’s needs, desires, and wants where every student, parent, teacher, and administrator has a voice and a choice in their program.

Learning is Fun!

Our curriculum is designed to engage children in inspiring activities that promote learning in a fun way. Children can accumulate understanding and knowledge through play, exploration, experimenting, and building connections with others. 

We Promote Well-Being

Our program motivates every child’s mind, body, and spirit. We embrace a holistic approach to our programs and the need for students to have both a healthy body and a healthy mind.
