6 Beyond-the-Classroom Programs

The first day of school is quickly approaching! We’re here to help you switch gears and keep your child engaged beyond the classroom.


Afterschool programs are an excellent way to give your child a supervised location to engage in homework help, high active activities, and more! We have four programs: L.E.A.D (Learn. Excel. Achieve. Dsiplay.), Leonhard, Teens in Action (T.I.A), and Champaign-Urbana Special Recreation. Each camp offers unique opportunities, and arrangements can be made with Unit #4 to drop kids off at CUSR, Leonhard, and L.E.A.D programs.

Find out more about each of the four afterschool options HERE.


School’s Out Days

School’s Out Days are the perfect destination for positive, educational, and productive programming on days when school isn’t in session. Whether you follow the traditional or balanced calendar, we have activities planned to keep your child active!

Parents’ Night Out

Weekends are time to relax, recoup, and reenergize. Whether that’s dinner and a movie night, a grocery trip without the kids, or an extra-long snooze session, you can take advantage of Parent’s Night Out one Saturday a month! We’ll keep your children busy and properly distracted with our energetic staff. Bonus! All programs are TV-free.

Youth Sports: Soccer, Volleyball, Football, and Basketball

We love to see kids get active, learn teamwork and confidence, and grow their skills and talents. Youth and Junior sports leagues and clinics are kicking off with the school year to teach them all of these great traits! Try something new, repeat something they’ll love, and get them moving.
