Reliable Childcare for Children 5-12
Finding high quality childcare is often a top priority for parents.
For working parents, the gap before and after school can be tricky to coordinate. In the community of Allard in Heritage Valley, there’s a great option.
Right inside Dr. Lila Fahlman School, students can attend Discovery Place Out of School Care. Rather than having kids go to a separate facility, they stay right at their school.
Benefits of Childcare at Dr. Lila Fahlman School
- Less driving
- Less stress
- Children are in a familiar place
Program Director Kelsey Connors is pleased to be offering childcare at Dr. Lila Fahlman School.
“We are very excited about being part of the Allard and Dr. Lila Fahlman School community. Our programming is based off the children’s interests, and our educators engage with the children in play and make observations to ensure we are providing a rich environment that all the children want to be in.”
—Kelsey Connors, Discovery Place Program Director
