We are a non-profit corporation, founded by parents, just like yourself. We have proudly held the contract with University Place School District #83 since 1990. We operate in portables and gymnasiums at Chambers Primary, Evergreen Primary, Sunset Primary and UP Primary. We also provide care for Narrows View and Drum Intermediate students at Chambers Primary.
We offer a variety of weekly activities in science, cooking, arts & crafts, cooperative games and language arts. For our older children, we offer daily homework time with encouragement and guidance from our staff.

An afternoon snack is provided daily. We try to make these as nutritious as possible. A morning and afternoon snack are provided on long days. Parents are welcome to provide a "birthday snack" or treat for the class. A monthly snack schedule is posted in your child's classroom. University Place Latchkey has a "no nut products" policy. Please refer to your Parent Handbook for more specifics.
