For over 12 years After the Bell has been the partner families turn to for their children. A place to connect, burn some energy off after school and for some, complete their homework. Giving more quality family time at home with kids more relaxed and sleeping better. You can finish your workday guilt free knowing your kids aren't bored and are well cared for.
After the Bell is not a chain. We are local, family owned and run. We have been a part of the community for over 25 years and love our children, parents and grandparents.
Choosing who to trust your children with can be a challenge. We are not a fly by night business but have decades of professional experience and training.
It doesn't matter how nice the facility is or what it costs if your child is just seen as a number. It's our highest calling to care for your children as if they were our own.
Speaking of nice, we sought to create an amazing place your child actually looks forward to coming to. It's hard to be away while at work but when your kid loves being here our parents say it makes it a little easier.
After The Bell exists to provide the absolute best in after school care, always striving to surpass the expectations of parents. To be more than just a building to drop your kids off for a few hours, it is our passion and sole purpose to be a trusted integral part of helping you raise your children to be happy, healthy and achieve their full potential.
In a nutshell, our aim is to give parents peace of mind and provide a place children actually look forward to coming to after school.
After The Bell believes that children deserve to be cared for and respected. And that all children are entitled to a safe, clean and healthy environment. After The Bell also believes in open communication with parents and community partners to create a place where children can thrive.
Social and life skill such as honesty, responsibility, fairness, compassion and respect are endowed through positive activities and interaction between staff and children.
"My two children have gone to ATB since they were in kindergarden. I have been SUPER impressed with the way this place is run. There are clear behavioral guidelines, teacher assistants are hired to help with homework, I do not have to worry about whether homework is done or not as there is a chart indicating its status, the place is clean, all employees care about the children that are there, it is organized and meant to be a place for kids."
"My son loves this place. They help with homework, provide snacks, and plenty of play with hands on supervision. I couldn't think of a better place for kids that attend Newport Elementary."
"This is the absolutely BEST daycare/aftercare for kids. My kids have been to many in there short little lives but this will be their last. It's the only place I get dirty looks when I pick them up early, and specifically been asked NOT to pick them up early and have had to "threaten them" to get them out so I can go pick up their brother who is only 8 months old otherwise he would be there too!
Mrs. Debbie is in this business for the kids!!! I can not say enough good things about Mrs. Debbie and her staff! LOVE THEM!"
It's a big decision we get it. In fact we've gone through it as parents and later grandparents, it's what drives us to provide such an amazing experience for our families. We're hear when you're ready.
