The City of Augusta School Age Childcare Program operates with a philosophy of service to the children, parents and community. For children, the program offers a safe, supportive environment that encourages creativity and positive self-esteem. This is accomplished through wholesome and fun activities; including age appropriate education activities, arts and crafts, literacy activities, creative play, and nutritious snacks. For parents, the program offers affordable childcare with dependable scheduling and flexible enrollment policies. For the community, the program provides support for families of local business, social services, and school.
