After School Program – Charlotte NC

A school year unlike any other deserves a childcare plan unlike any other.  If you are interested in our plans centered around virtual learning, please see our Remote Learning Support page for program information for the 2020-2021 school year.

We are pleased to offer after school care and pick up from local area elementary schools during the school year.  We are still taking input as to what schools we will be picking up from so please let us know if you are interested in pick up from a school near us.

After your children are done with their school day, we load them into our Giggles vans and bring them to our facility located in Ballantyne Village.

When they arrive at Giggles we feed them a snack and make sure their homework is completed. We do have designated after school teachers who help your child with their homework every day if they need it. We are a small program and generally have around a 1:5 teacher to child ratio for homework time.  Following homework and the group activity, free play is encouraged until you come and pick your children up when you are done with your workday.

All After School Options include school days, half days, and four hours after 2 PM on teacher workdays.  If you need care on Holidays, or Saturdays, you can pay hourly or choose our After School Unlimited option.
