WeVillage is the number one place for after school care for kids kindergarten through 6th grade (up to 12 yrs of age). We work with the local schools to have a bus drop off right in front of or near all four of our locations.
From 2:30-6:00pm every school day, after school kids are engaged in learning, social engagement and play time activities. Every school day we designate 3:30pm to 4:30pm as homework time, and do our best to make sure every bit of
homework is done. We allow a good deal of time for fun and a healthy snack. And since WeVillage is open until 9:30pm on weekdays you always have the option of a later pickup (normal drop-in rates apply) if something comes up.
We offer a daily rate of $35, a 3 day a week rate of $335, and a weekly rate of $475 a month.
About Us: WeVillage was built on the concept of childcare when you need it. With our convenient hourly flexible child care you will never have to worry about paying for care you aren’t using or lengthy contracts. Simply drop your child off
once enrolled and go.
