  • After relocating from another state, we were very excited to find the AfterZone. From 2011 to the present, we have been very pleased with the AfterZone Day Care Center. Our greatest satisfaction has been the after school services provided for both of our sons. They have a great owner, Stephanie McCormick and a great staff of attentive and skilled childcare providers. We really enjoy that as soon as the kids arrive after school, that they immediately start working on their homework before going outside for recreational activities. As a customer since 2011, we feel that the services provided to both of our son’s has been great and would recommend the AfterZone for anyone looking for quality after school care as well as summer programs.

  • We have been at the Afterzone since it first opened. Both of my sons have attended, and my youngest is still attending and loves it. Since I am a working parent, the hours are great for me. The staff help with homework each day after school, and this really helps us out a lot! The Afterzone has a big heart for the community and has even started clubs that get the kids involved with lending a helping hand. My son loves being involved with this. We just love everything about the Afterzone – especially the compassionate and caring staff!
