  1. Before and After School Programs

    SPARC Before and After School Program is a licensed child care program that provides a great opportunity for your child to learn and grow both before and after school through a variety of clubs, sports, enrichment activities, homework help, and mentoring. The program provides:

    • Snack Time: A healthy after school snack and 100% Juice are provided.
    • Social Time: A chance for friends to catch up, talk about their day, and unwind.
    • Games and Activities: Every day provides a different activity, or choice of activities that work on a core physical, mental, or enrichment element. SPARC focuses on teamwork, sportsmanship, strategy, critical thinking, and more!
    • Homework Time: We give the students a chance to work on any homework from the day, study for any tests, or ask the staff for any specific help with an assignment.
    • Special Events: Movies, pizza parties, and cookouts!
    SPARC also offers clubs throughout the year to enhance learning and physical activity beyond school hours. Participating schools are Fremont*, Harrison, Truman, Watkins, Westport, Williams (p.m. only), and Wilson’s Creek.

The highlight of our program is our Challenge Course set in the quiet and natural setting of the 245-acre Ritter Springs Park. Our Challenge Course provides a low risk, but challenging element to our teambuilding program that will have your group walking cable ropes, negotiating obstacles, and balancing on elements built close to the ground.
