Schools Out Special (SOS)


Schools Out Special also known as SOS, offers all day childcare for parents who need a safe and fun environment for their children during teacher work days, holiday breaks and even snow days (weather permitting). 

SOS runs from 7:00am-6:00pm on dates offered, and is jam packed with field trips to places like Pump It Up, Movie Theater, Frankie's Fun Park, Skate Palace, bowling and more! We also offer a wide variety of planned activities such as arts & crafts, fun and exciting games as well as swim time in our aquatics center! Ages for SOS days are 5 Years-14 years.
