Our School Age Programming is underway!!

Join us Monday through Friday from 3-6 pm as children from throughout the city gather here at the Neighborhood Center. Looking for a loving and supportive environment for your children to learn and grow? Our mission is to serve your family and help your children to be successful each and every day.

We pick up from several local area schools: Hope Charter, KIPP Cooper Norcross Academy, HB Wilson, Mastery Charter, Sacred Heart, Wiggins and Cream Schools.

Full Day Programming is available for school closings due to professional development and some holidays. Call 856-365-5295 for more information!!

All you need to know about our School Age Programs!!

Our Program adopts practices designed to engage children in positive and developmentally appropriate activities that are fun and constructive. We seek to foster an environment where children build strong bonds with their teachers and peers while understanding the importance of contributing to their community.

Our daily schedule is filled with opportunities to learn through play, participate in athletic experiences and team building, Arts and Crafts, Christian Education and life skill development.


We take seasonal trips to local area parks and attractions! We look for every opportunity to broaden their horizons and try new things!

Arts & Education

This year, we will continue to learn and reinforce helpful skills through fun and creative avenues! Children will engage in hands on learning experiences as well as freely explore materials in our thematically curated learning centers. Also, with the help of our friends at the Pop Up Library, we have zoomed in on literacy as they provide books for our children to take home weekly.

Athletics and Sports

Our facility supports several sports including but not limited to Basketball, Soccer, Football and Baseball. We offer opportunities for athletic development and team building activities within our programs each day. We also have 2 built in playgrounds for our children to interact and play.

Christian Education

Our mission states that we love our neighbor as ourselves, but we also learn what it means to love God with all our heart! We believe that obedience to this command enables us to love others well and serve others with joy! Through an amazing Bible curriculum and the faithful work of our staff, we interact with deep truths through songs, stories, art and much more!

So, Are you ready to join our family???
