Our Center for School-age Development (CSD) programs offer a process orientation in which youth are involved in planning, implementation, decision making, and activity choices. The before- and after-school programs are primarily recreational, with opportunities for working on homework. We recognize that families have busy schedules, so we work with each family to encourage a balance of activities, particularly after school, when most children need some physical, “unwind” time. Just as preschoolers learn by doing and playing, elementary age children learn, grow, and mature through social and recreational opportunities that teach without appearing to be academic.
Our trained staff provide a wide variety of play and learning choices every day that challenge children cognitively, physically, and socially. For parents, the benefits are twofold: Your children are safe in a supervised setting, and they are happily engaged in appropriate activities that challenge their minds and bodies.
SUMCD is flexible with CSD enrollments, so parents can enroll for the regular days each week that meet their needs. In several CSD sites we also provide “school’s out” child care when the public schools are closed for holidays, school breaks, or snow days. Additionally, the before- and after- school programs extend daily hours when schools dismiss early for bad weather or have a delayed opening.

At the end of the school year, parents are looking for child care options. Summer Camp is a fun, activity-filled child care opportunity. Supervised recreation activities such as swimming, field trips, arts and crafts, sports, and games for children ages 6 to 12 years of age are available. All programs are licensed and supervised by trained, professional staff.
Enrolling early is strongly encouraged, as Summer Camp is incredibly popular and in high demand. Contact us at 570-524-0926 (Union/Snyder Counties) or 717-242-3032 (Mifflin County) for more information.
