LUNCH Programs

For the lunch programs the kids eat in the classroom that their program takes place in.  If they have hot lunch they eat quickly and join their class.  You can also pack a lunch on the day of your child’s program to ensure they are maximizing their program time.

AFTER SCHOOL Programs

After school programs are one hour from 3:15 – 4:15. Explore It! Instructors will pick up all JK and SK students from their classrooms at 3:10pm and walk them to our program space.

Students are supervised at all times while in our care. All children in after school programs stay with us until signed out by a parent, designated adult, or by Unicorn Day Care’s After Care staff.
