Kindergarten up to 7th grade

Lil’ Sneakers University offers before and/or after school care to children attending Kindergarten up to 7th grade. Hopkins Elementary School and Memorial Middle School bus to and from Lil’ Sneakers. Because Lil’ Sneakers has its own 8 passenger minivan, we are able provide transportation services to area schools that do not provide bussing services. At the present time Lil’ Sneakers transports to and from Brentmoor, Hopkins and Memorial. However, our transportation services are available only on a first come, first serve basis.

In addition to our before and/or after school program, Lil’ Sneakers offers full day service on school holidays, breaks, and snow day closures. We welcome drop-ins for these days.

During the summer Lil’ Sneakers runs a full-time school-age camp program. The camp can be utilized on a full-time or part-time basis and vacation can also be accommodated during the summer. This program is jam-packed with activities specifically designed for the active school-aged child. Swimming is offered twice a week at area pools. The school-agers visit one of the area parks each week for a picnic lunch and a full day of outside activities. One day a week we have people come in to the center for a program whether it is educational or just pure fun. Each week an out-of-Mentor field trip is offered. These trips are on a first come, first served basis and could be to The Science Center, The Natural History Museum, The Art Museum, to a Lake County Captains’ game, Wild Water Kingdom, the Cleveland Zoo, the Lake County Fair, etc. Each year we pole our school-agers to see where they would like to go and we try to work it into next year’s activities.
