after school adventure

Quality, licensed childcare programming ….

Located in a beautiful camp-like setting, four miles east of I-5, The Firs After School Adventure (ASA) program offers quality, licensed childcare programming for school age children, Kindergarten through fifth grade, during non-school hours.

Every day, children are greeted at participating schools by our qualified staff, then transported by van or foot to our ASA facilities. ASA provides a staff to student ratio of 1-10, to ensure relationships are formed and students receive the care and attention needed to feel safe and secure.

Daily Adventures include, but are not limited to, Fort Building in our 3.5 acre woods, Art and Science, Drama, Field Sports, Scooter/Skateboarding, and yes…Homework Adventures too!

Transportation

After School transportation is currently offered at the following elementary schools:

Geneva

Wade King

Carl Cozier

Roosevelt

Silver Beach

Northern Heights

To be a qualifying school for pick-up service requires 3 full-time enrolled students. Please contact us at: asastaff@thefirs.org if you are interested and currently attend a non-participating school we do not serve and we will add you to our waitlist.

Students are transported from school to ASA in 15-passenger vans. Please check with your school as to where childcare pick-up is located. Depending on each school’s enrollment, ASA may pick up from multiple schools in one van. Geneva students walk with our staff to ASA.
