Extra Curricular Activities:
CVMS is proud to employ an aftercare coordinator to plan daily and monthly activities for children who stay with us after 3pm. We additionally host several extra curricular classes on-site! This allows busy families the opportunity to offer their children experiences that support their growing interests, without the hassle of driving to and from various locations. Currently we offer classes from the following partners. Check out their websites for more information:
