Playworks provides care for elementary school (kindergarten to age 12) children before and after school, on school break days, and during the summer break.

Before- and After-School Care

The Playworks School-Age program is located in the Link Classroom, located in the lower level of the Playworks LINK Event Center.

In the school-age program, children are given a chance to explore, interact with friends, and acquire new skills. Meal times, enrichment activities, time for homework, and active play are also incorporated into the daily programming.

For more information, call 952.445.PLAY (7529).
