Sun ‘N Fun & Club STAR School-Age Programs
Sun ‘N Fun is a state licensed drop-in program offering before and after- school childcare services to students in K-6th grades.

To best serve the needs of all children, Sun ‘N Fun is located on campus at five elementary schools within the City. (See the Sun ‘N Fun FAQs for specific locations and hours of operation.) Each site is staffed at a low one-to-fourteen teacher/student ratio. The daily curriculum includes a variety of developmentally appropriate indoor and outdoor activities and experiences, homework assistance, nutritional mid-morning and afternoon snacks, and group times. (Lunch is not provided) Enrollment is on a first-come/first-serve basis and is limited by state licensing capacity mandates.

The Club STAR (Students Taking Active Responsibility) Program is an after-school program designed specifically for 4th, 5th and 6th graders. Understanding the needs and interests of upper elementary children, the program's curriculum incorporates a variety of components that promote health and wellness, personal growth and success, inclusion of family, school and community and of course, fun and play. (See the Club STAR Program FAQs for specific locations and hours of operation.)
