Before and After School Program

Lovely Lane’s Before & After School Enrichment is a state licensed, non-profit program administered by a director and volunteer advisory board.  Our staff provides a safe and enriching environment for Kindergarten through 5th grade students at Pierce Elementary School. 

Why us?

  • Our location – we are located right next door to Pierce Elementary which provides us the opportunity to escort students safely to and from school during the day.  It is also convenient for picking up and dropping off students.
  • We provide a hot breakfast daily before school and snacks after school while staying peanut free to protect those with peanut allergies
  • Enrichment activities such as special crafts or yoga, are offered in the afternoons and special activities like storytelling or movies are offered on days with early dismissals
  • We provide daycare on in-service and snow days.  For an additional charge, we also provide daycare for days during Thanksgiving and Spring Break, and the summer months.
  • We hire staff that love to interact with children.  All staff members have been fingerprinted and background checked.  Our staff is trained in CPR and First Aid.  All staff participate in professional growth opportunities.
  • We offer flexibility.  You can choose to pay for before and after school; before only; after only; or drop-in (pay per use).
  • We have an outstanding reputation because of our many activities and the way we work with parents.



  • BASE operates from 6:30 am to 5:45 pm (Times subject to change during inclement weather.)
  • We escort students to school at 8:40 am and pick them up again in the afternoons at 3:50 pm or 2:15pm on Fridays.
  • Breakfast is served from 7:00 to 8:00 am and a healthy snack is provided in the afternoon.
  • In the afternoons students are provided with opportunities to join in on enrichment activities, play games, create in our art center, read, put together puzzles, and go outside (weather permitting).
