Serving over 50 area elementary schools!
HoneyTree is OPEN when schools close for weather and on teacher workdays, so you’re never stranded without a fun, safe, and exciting place for your child while you work. We provide transportation to and from most area schools. For a complete listing of schools we service click here.
Throughout the year, our children enjoy special field trips to Star City Skate Center and our private Aquatic Center with gymnasium when school is out. Many of our school age children also participate in our Summer Camp program. This year's theme is HoneyTree AllStars!
Expanding your child’s mind . . . one day at a time.
Homework/educational enrichment area – We provide a designated place for working on homework or other educational enrichment activities. Also on hand are word games and crossword puzzles. We even challenge your child with science projects and brainteasers!
Art Center – The art center is a place for children to show their most creative artistic side. It is filled with materials appropriate for the skill level that will inspire your child to create masterpieces.
Board Games Area – The board games area has a shelf filled with board games that interest the children and several places for them to be played at a table with chairs, a low table with floor pillows, or perhaps even a rug on the floor for lounging and playing.
The Chill Zone – The chill zone is an area for relaxation and relating to peers. It has comfy, school-aged children-sized furniture that encourages students to stop and “chill.” Things like pillows, books and magazines, a sofa table for game play so conversation and relaxation abound here. A TV is used sparingly!
Book or Library Center – The book or library center is a quiet area for your child to look at a variety of books. Age appropriate magazines are a favorite choice for school age students.
Technology Center – This center has a Smart Board and is setup for students to use in both group and individual activities as school enrichment. They also have access to iPads loaded with many games and educational activities.
Drama Area – Here we provide the opportunity, accessories, and space for students to use the expressive arts. Karaoke, acting, singing, and dancing might all be encouraged.
Transportation and Block Center – Your children learn spatial development, logical thinking skills, small motor skills, and get lots of practice interacting and playing in this popular center.
Amazing Athletes Training
Amazing Athletes Training Academy is a cross-training, skill-based fitness program designed to engage older children in active wellness through advanced physical fitness challenges and partner-based sports lessons that focus on advanced motor-skill development. All the programs are non-competitive which allows every child to learn and develop at his or her own pace. By allowing children to build their skills at their own comfort level, they become accustomed to sports and fitness in a natural way that will benefit them throughout adolescence and stick with them into adulthood.
Kindergarten through Fifth Grade children display a wide range of physical abilities and strengths. Our coaches work with each child to help them strive for their personal best. At the core of each 45-60 minute class is sport-specific training focus where athletes work in pairs to advance their motor-skills and develop teamwork and patience.

Character Counts Program
The CHARACTER COUNTS! program is taught at HoneyTree’s After School care. This program enables adults to teach the Six Pillars of Ethics –responsibility, respect, caring, fairness, trustworthiness and citizenship — in ways that children of all ages may understand. This program provides a unified approach, which, in and of itself, strengthens the program.
