Mission Statement

PELC's school age childcare program exists to partner with Parchment School District to provide a complete support for families in our school system. Our staff offers a calm, but engaging environment to students before school, after school, and on days when school is not in session.

Summer Camp

Summer Camp runs 6:00 AM-6:00 PM daily. Tuition costs follow the No School Day section on our Pricing Sheet found on the Forms and Reports page. There is also a $25 Activity Fee for each child attending Summer Camp to help cover the cost of field trips and special events.

Our summer programming has lots of opportunities for learning and LOTS of opportunities for good old fashioned summer fun! We walk a half-mile to Markin Glen Park every Thursday for Beach Day. We play board games, kickball, blow bubbles, run through sprinklers, and go on field trips - just to name a few things!

See our current summer schedule with themes and dates on our Forms and Reports page.
