Assisting families by filling in the gap between school and home


In basketball, an assist is attributed to a player who passes the ball to a teammate in a way that leads to a score. We are purposed in the same idea.  We are here to fill in the gap between school and home.  Assist is not just a place for children to be “watched”.  We will reinforce learned scholastic concepts while nourishing areas of struggle and developing social and spiritual character. Your child is destined to win the game of life and we want to assist in making sure that it happens!
