Welcome to Encore!

School Age Care strives to continually improve and deliver a program that promotes an environment where children can explore and develop their creative, personal, physical, and ethical attributes; where strengths are fostered, active learning is child driven, their individual uniqueness is embraced and the fun and learning never ends.

About Encore

The Encore program is a childcare program for children grades five-eight. The before-school program is located at Friendly Hills and Heritage Middle Schools. The after-school program is held at the Noreen Center in West St. Paul. Encore offers tutoring during homework time, Youth Services, a Character Counts program, Kids' Club, cooking, free time, arts, gym time and a healthy afternoon snack!

The purpose of Encore is to create a safe, warm environment where children feel secure and respected. We will provide a stimulating environment for fun and adventure. Children are encouraged to try new things and to develop positive relationships with peers and staff. We promote an atmosphere of trust and respect and strive to assist children in building strong self esteem!
