A safe, fun place for after school and summer time!

During the school year, buses deliver children to The Son Rise School from Kilgore ISD and from Longview ISD. We drive a van to East Texas Montessori Prep Academy (Longview ISD) and to Tatum ISD to pick up school-aged children. 

When they arrive at our center, children are served a Simple Supper. Then they have many opportunities for well-rounded run and enrichment such as outside play time, Wii time, homework time, games, arts and crafts, and more.

Summer care

  • During the summer, we plan special activities, events, and field trips for children. 
  • We offer a summer-themed curriculum that is fun and exciting and that gives children an opportunity to learn.
  • Children have a quiet time to rest each day. During this time, they can relax while watching a G-rated movie or, if they choose, take a nap. 
  • A daily schedule is posted in each classroom along with the weekly curriculum. The schedule includes designated times each day for inside and/or outside physical activities. We also have designated screen time. 
  • Field trips are a special summer activity (for children who have finished kindergarten and older). Children must have permission of parent or guardian to participate in field trips. Parents are notified of upcoming field trips at least a week in advance. 
  • We sometimes invite special guests to visit us during summer and school breaks. Guests may include magicians, balloon artists, Child Evangelism, The Story Lady, and others. 
  • We also celebrate the holidays with special holiday parties. Parents are always welcome to join us for the holiday fun!
