Childcare at Blakey Hall
Young children gain so much experience from the older generation. In addition, the older generation is inspired by the energy and enthusiasm from the children. Intergenerational involvement is truly wonderful and is the reason we opened Blakey Hall After School & Summer Camp next to our senior accommodations in 1999.
Childhood is a unique and precious span in the human life cycle that should be valued and respected. Through our child-centric programs, we provide young individuals with opportunities to build relationships with others. In addition to that, we have a dietary department that serves freshly prepared, nutritious meals to the children under our care.
After-School and Summer Camps, Holidays, and Teacher Workdays
Your child will have an exciting, memorable experience at our after-school and summer camp. We do pick-ups at most schools in the area. During the school year, we help with homework; and during the summer, we incorporate several field trips into our schedule.
Childcare at Blakey also offers à la carte options during the school year, when kids are out of school because of holidays or Teacher Work Days. If you’re looking for a safe and engaged program for your children, get in touch! We’ll reserve a spot for your child(ren).
