Education changes a child's life. Our extended care programs give children opportunity, imagination & a dream!

Our Story

Upcoming Events

Our passion for children does not stop when the school day ends, but extends into the nontraditional learning environment. Through a collaborative partnership Hot Spots, School Day educators and Community Leaders extend children’s learning experience outside of the “typical school day hours!” Learning changes a child’s life offering opportunity, imagination and a dream.


Hot Spots Extended Care Program Inc. originated within the structure of Celebree Learning Centers, a for-profit early child care provider, as an external provider to students attending schools in the local community.
