“The staff is so friendly and caring and take their time to really get to know, not only the children, but the parents as well. My son loves attending and is saddened on those days when he is not there, I am running behind, or I pick him up early and he does not get to see his friends…”
- Cynthia, Parent
“The kids are given a great balance of encouragement, exercise, STEAM learning, and hands-on activities to promote education and creativeness. I highly recommend this beneficial childcare!”
- Melinda, Parent
“One of the most impressive things I saw this year was the projects or "units" that the kids worked on. I am unsure of the specifics, but the children worked in groups to research volcanoes and then give a relatively formal presentation, ending with a model volcano that actually erupted! The kids were so proud to present what they learned, and all age kids were able to take part - even my preschooler.”
- Amy, Parent
“For the first time in 10 years, I am thrilled with After School services and believe in their ability to actually strengthen and enhance our instructional program while keeping with the culture we have established in our school. Pure Genius. Thank you, Innovation Learning!”

- Corinne, Parent
“What stood out to me about this program is the fact that my child is always doing something different. I love that he’s never bored, and he actually asks me to go more days than he currently attends!”
- Jennifer, Parent
