Beyond the Bell (BTB) programs provide a safe, fun, and positive environment for children. We provide open communication between the staff, parents, and schools to ensure that each child’s needs are met on a daily basis.

Staff will be positive role models who will help each child benefit and grow through social interaction. We believe children have positive attitudes when they are in a positive environment. This is achieved through games, activities, crafts, and opportunities to socialize.
