Extra Curricular Activities


Scottsdale Child Care & Learning Centers offers computer classes for preschool, pre-kindergarten, and kindergarten students; children three years old and up. Our Computers Class Students learn a whole new way, reinforcing the subjects that they learn about in the classroom (alphabet, numbers, shapes, and colors) while utilizing basic computer skills (mouse control and keyboard control).

Our North Phoenix Computers Class is just one other way we make learning fun and interesting at our child care center.

Classes are held twice a week and hours will vary according to each child’s school schedule. Contact us to get signed up for computers class today!

Dance class at Scottsdale Child Care & Learning Center is a fantastic opportunity to learn rhythm and have a fun time with friends! Basic dance and gymnastics techniques are taught, utilizing many different styles of dance, including jazz, swing, cheer moves and some hip hop!
