After School Care

Welcome to Maryville City Schools Adventure Club school-aged care program.  The quality of care given to a child when he/she is not with a parent is vitally important to the child, the family, and the community.   Our program goals are to enhance the student’s academic, emotional, physical, and social development while still on the school campus.

With this in mind, our mission is clear. The Maryville City Schools Adventure Club leadership team and staff are committed to providing quality student care in a safe, nurturing, relaxed environment. We provide students with a variety of opportunities and activities of choice that offer enrichment in emotional, physical, and social development, as well as academic support as needed. Our program extends beyond basic needs by providing nourishment, play, and relaxation.  Our staff provides care, security and compassion for many students and we look forward to serving the needs of your family too!
