School Age Programs

before & after school care

We offer a before and after school care program Monday–Friday for school-aged children TK–5th grade during the school year, which allows for children to receive our care during a normal school day, early outs, late starts, no school days, or weather-related days of school cancellation. Children also receive school bus transportation to and from their school.

summer care

We offer a summer program for school aged kids. This program encompasses a variety of themes, activities, and outings. Children have the opportunity to regularly attend the swimming pool, library, and park during the week. They also engage in summer recreation through Orange City Parks and Recreation, and outdoor education through planting and maintaining a summer care garden. The summer care program has many stimulating activities to offer your school-aged children. They will love the summer care program and will benefit socially, physically, and educationally.

For school-aged children TK–5th grade during the summer.


“As summer school aged teacher at Orange City Daycare and Preschool, I carefully plan each day’s activities to provide a balance of physical outdoor activity with fun, but purposeful learning center activities. Children are engaged in writing, drawing and reading activities daily to minimize the ‘summer learning loss.’ Children are actively involved in planning, planting, maintaining, and harvesting a summer vegetable garden as well as performing a child sized circus and learning puppetry skills with Lisa Laird of Pockets Full of Fun. Children ages five through 12 are welcome to join the summer fun.”
–Leora Olson, lead teacher

“Selecting Orange City Daycare and Preschool was the right choice for our son. The care providers are passionate about providing a program that is fun and educational.  Our son enjoys all of the fun activities, crafts, and games.”

“I enjoy Orange City Area Daycare and Preschool for several reasons. I enjoy the routine each room has  Kids need routine and they learn a lot by having a daily routine. Being at Orange City Area Daycare and Preschool is also like having your kids in school year round. They are continuously learning, exploring and using their imaginations. They also learn discipline, along with manners.  I also enjoy getting to know the teachers in each room my kids are in.”
