School Age

School Year

Explore & Grow offers programs for children until they turn 13.  During the school year, we have a before and after school program, and care availability for snow days, school breaks and other scheduled days off for most schools.

Currently, we have bussing available to students who attend Kentwood Public, Dutton Christian, and Legacy Christian for before and after school care.  Our bus transports to Cross Creek Charter Academy for the noon and after school runs. 

Christian Influence

Teachers incorporate Christian principles and plan bible activities for the children on a  regular basis.  Bible activities include devotionals, prayer requests, skits, bible trivia and songs.  We also pray before our snacks and meals.

Summer Program

Explore & Grow also provides a well-planned summer program for children needing care. A wide variety of activities are scheduled each day. This program starts the first Monday after school is out and continues through the Thursday before school starts in the fall. You must pre-register your child(ren) for this program.
