For a working parent, the sense of relief I feel knowing that my child is in a safe environment while I am at work is immeasurable. The staff are incredibly professional, and the hours of the before and after school program fit into my work schedule. My daughter always comes home talking about all of the activities she has participated in and I have seen her grow socially, making new friends at the Club. I love that when I pick her up she has already completed her homework which saves us time at home.

My children have been attending the after school program since Kindergarten. My husband and I work full time and finding a program that works for us has been a life saver. BGCNRI busses them to and from school which is priceless. They offer fun activities for the kids and actually play every day which means a lot in this age of technology. They come home full of stories about games, art projects they worked on, and friends they played with. They are able to complete their homework which provides better ‘at home’ time for us. The staff is wonderful and encourage my kids to try their best. If I forget to call because my child is absent, I will get a call immediately after school making sure my child is safe.
