About the Provider

Description: Knowledge is power and motivated children love to learn. Let us help you give your child a BOOST in learning! BOOST– Best Out of School Time – offers an array of fantastic programs to children and teens. BOOST serves more than 600 students in kindergarten through grade 5 before school (from 7:15 a.m. - 8:30 a.m.) and after school (3:10 p.m. - 5:50 p.m.), Monday through Friday. BOOST programs include homework assistance, recreation, arts and crafts, certified after school/camp program curriculum, computer lab, field trips and more. Our goal is to support the growth and development of each child by providing a safe, caring, adult-supervised before and after school environment and to build upon the physical, social, emotional and cognitive skills developed by our children in school.

This is a good program that is affordable to the parents but they lack in professionalism and quality care. My experience with the boost program has not been good. i have been harassed on several occasions by a particular staff member Maria. She insulted me through formulation of her personal opinion and consistently holding a sort of resentment that I can not comprehend. They also refuse to fully help my child with his homework, which is part of services that they proclaim to provide.
