School Age

Silly Slugs & Silly Snails: K-5th

Field trips, STEM experiences, team building activities, and more!

For school-age students at Lil’ Tots, mornings and afternoons are engaging and active in a collaborative, interactive, and social classroom space. We understand your child has spent their day hard at work, which is why our school-agers are given a choice on how they would like to spend their afternoon. Children can receive homework help from one of our staff members, or they can join in on the classroom activities we have planned for the day. Our School-Age program is a place to keep your child busy and engaged through arts and crafts, games, group activities, and outdoor play. Student-led activities and large-group experiences in team-building games promote teamwork and friendships. Our program focuses on group dynamics, homework support, and character development.

Not sure what to do over Summer & school year breaks?

Our summers at Lil’ Tots are jam-packed with fun!  The school-agers spend their weeks traveling throughout the metro to see what fun awaits them. We schedule various field trips each week for the kids; Science Center, Boone Train, Bowling, Pump it Up, Historical Museum, multiple parks and splash pads around the metro, and so much more!
