Our TGIF program goals are:

  1. To provide a safe and clean environment

  2. Affordability in comparison to a full-time babysitter

  3. Access to the Learning Park, healthy food options, and engaging group activities

Trained staff members implement interactive, group lesson plans throughout the day. Students participate in a variety of engaging and creative activities that may include art, outdoor recreation, and group activities. Child care classrooms have a student to teacher ratio of 10:1, in compliance with the Department of Health standards. We accept HRA and ACD vouchers, please obtain voucher before registering for a program with 82nd Street Academics. Read about our Learning Park & Playground here!
