Before & After School



Happy Hours provides service to any school-age child in need of care both before and after school, but does not provide transportation, thus most participants attend Happy Hours at their “home” school oR families must set up their own transportation to the program.

Our staff come from a variety of educational backgrounds and education experiences. Many of our staff members elect to take additional courses to enhance their credentials and remain current on best practice methods. Staff members also participate in ongoing professional development to continue their education in care of children. All staff must meet AzDHS regulations for their positions including education, experience, background checks and drug screening.

  • Language Arts

  • Visual Arts

  • Science Investigations

  • Music and Movement

  • Physical Activity

  • Culinary Arts
