Kindergarten up to 7th grade

Lil’ Sneakers University offers before and/or after school care to children attending Kindergarten up to 7th grade. Ridge 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.

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, Pioneer Waterland, the Cleveland Zoo, Dave and Busters, 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.
