Non School Day Side Treks

Most days that school is not in session, our Learning Ventures Child Care is open.

At Learning Ventures, your child has extra time for hobbies and friends in a safe, supportive environment. Each non school day features on-site activities that give students the opportunity to be creative, think critically, develop self-direction and experience a sense of belonging. Some days also feature field trips.

Please note that a bag lunch and beverage are needed each day, unless otherwise indicated. A light breakfast and an afternoon snack are provided.
