L’il Folks offers before and/or after school services for children entering kindergarten through twelve years old. Convenient bus pick-up and drop-off at our Center is available through Carrollton Elementary School, Westside Elementary School, Isle of Wight Academy, and Nansemond-Suffolk Academy. Before school students enjoy the opportunity to socialize and play in a relaxed environment before starting their school day. A breakfast of cereal and milk is offered for students arriving at our Center between 6 a.m. and 7 a.m. each morning. Designated staff are responsible for supervising the students up until their buses arrive each morning to ensure that everyone gets on their assigned bus. After school students are given the opportunity to begin homework assignments upon drop-off in the afternoon upon parent's’ request. They are also offered a daily afternoon snack and given time for indoor play, reading, crafts, and outside play when weather permits. Accommodations are also made in advance for all announced school closings and early dismissals.
During the summer months the Center offers a summer camp program for our school age children to provide full day care. During the summer our teachers plan several field trips to get the students out and about in the area to explore our community. We also plan multiple activities within the Center, such as special visitors, bounce houses, petting zoos, etc. Summer Camp schedules are available on a full and part time basis. The children also get plenty of time for enjoying the summer with outdoor play and various arts and crafts activities.
