Philosophy and Goals

The High Hoppers School-Age Child Care (SACC) Program philosophy is to provide a positive, fun, and safe environment, which focuses on the whole child. We offer hands-on experiences that enrich and build each child’s learning skills according to their age and ability in order to allow personal growth and development. 

 The High Hoppers Program offers:
 · A safe, accepting, fun, and positive environment for all children.
 · Activities which help develop a healthy mind, body, and character through vigorous, challenging and creative recreational and enriching activities.
 · Opportunities to develop and strengthen social relationships.
 · An introduction to service learning opportunities which allows participants to develop a
   respect for individuals, groups, and the community.
 · Open communication among staff, participants, and parents.
Eligibility for Participation 
Children enrolled in the High Hoppers Program must be between the ages of 5 and 12 years and must be enrolled at Mark Hopkins Elementary.

Please note:  If the decision is made to close schools, School Age Child Care will be on the same Early Dismissal schedule.  Parents will need to pick up children at the school dismissal time.

This is not a drop-in care facility. Your student must be registered and dates of child care must be placed in advance.
