School Age Child Care - SACC


SACCSacc kids 1

SACC is open to students at most schools in Grades K-6 in Jefferson County.

Areas of Focus:

Community Service: Each site participates in at least 2 community service related projects every school year. Our goals are to help foster a sense of community and to empower our children to know that they can make a tangible difference in another person’s life.

Active Play: Recognizing that all children need to be active and have a physical outlet, we mandate that our programs play for at least 1 hour every day. Whether it is outside, in the gym or going for a walk, our children are active.

Academics: Your child’s success in school is important to us. Each day, every child is given the opportunity to complete their daily work while in our program. Our staff is also available for light tutoring. We love to see all of our children succeed in school!
