Older children need a safe, friendly, fun, and educational environment in which to spend their time when they are not in school. Whether you're looking for Before and/or After School care, or Summer/School Out care for your school-age child--from Kindergarten to age 13--Millard Children's Academy offers flexible programs to meet your needs. During the school year, we offer Before and/or After School care with transportation to and from the following Millard Public Schools: Ackerman, Black Elk, Neihardt, and Upchurch.

Children can start their day at MCA by having breakfast and socializing with their friends in one of our designated "Schooler" areas. Our van drivers are ready to take your children to their respective schools starting at 8:00 AM, so we ask that our school-age children arrive no later than 7:45 AM. Upon return from school each day, the children will be given an afternoon snack, after which, they will have a variety of activities to choose from until they go home for the day.

School-age children have the opportunity to complete homework, with supervision and assistance, thus freeing up their evening hours to spend with family. Children who do not have homework, or whose parents prefer to oversee it themselves, may have outdoor time, iPad time, or play time with cards, games, puzzles, word-finds, or color sheets. Some may choose to settle down with a book in our reading pit, while others may choose to catch up with friends from other schools.

School Out days and Summer Camp activities are more structured than our Before and/or After School program, but no less fun! School-age children who spend the entire day with us will be served breakfast, a morning snack, a balanced lunch, and an afternoon snack. The kids are split up into groups of up to fifteen children and enjoy organized games, crafts, food-making, and science experiments. Other special summer activities include weekly Movie and Snack Day, Reading Day, Spirit Days, and Water Fun Days (spraying only, NO swimming). In addition, optional field trips are offered several days each week during the summer.

Along with scheduled school out days for teacher in-service, conferences, etc., Millard Children's Academy is also here for you on those unexpected snow days during the winter. Since its inception, Millard Children's Academy has rarely closed for snow days or inclement weather. In fact, since January 2000, we have closed for snow seven times: four full days, twice at noon, and once at 3:00 PM. We know many of our parents have to work and are counting on us to be there no matter how extreme the conditions may become. We will always do our very best to be open when we say we'll be open.

Although we do require a deposit to hold a spot on our vans for school transportation due to the limited number of seats available, we do not require activity fees, supply fees, maintenance fees, or have contracts to sign. Our summer rates are some of the most flexible around, as you are only charged for the days that your school age child is actually in attendance.
