Connections LLC is a licensed childcare company contracting with North Lakes Academy to provide childcare before and after school for up to 26 kids in kindergarten through 6th grade.


Care is provided only on days when school is in session. Morning care is not provided if school has a late start due to weather but will provide after school care for 2 hours if school closes early.


After school the school cafeteria is converted into an area where a great variety of playing and learning supplies are provided for kids in Connections.


We also offer a healthy snack each day and spend time at the outside play area. 


Morning sessions are from 6:15am to 7:20am.
After school sessions are from 2:15pm to 6:00pm.
