The Discovery Kids program is a before and after school program that offers structured activities and hands-on learning for school-aged children. The Before and After Care program is available at each Queen Creek Unified School District Elementary School. Activities include homework time (not tutoring), science, arts & crafts, technology lab, active games and more! Sibling and employee discounts are available. Our programs start at 6:30 a.m. to school start and school end to 6:00 p.m. Discovery Kids is an award-winning program and follows the Arizona Quality Standards for Out-of-School Time Programs.

The Consistent schedule (child is scheduled to attend every day) is based off a weekly rate. You are billed for the number of weeks in a month, and you will not be billed for non-school days.

The Pick Your Days schedule (child is not scheduled to attend everyday) is based off a daily rate. You are only billed for the number of days you schedule in a month.

NO REFUND POLICY - In order to schedule and hold your spot, our program is a prepaid program only. You are invoiced for days scheduled not days your child attends. Invoices are always due on the 1st of the month. A late fee of $25 will be assessed if not paid by the due date. Once your contract has been approved and you should decide to withdraw, you will receive a credit to your account.
