Who We Are

Welcome to The Neighborhood! We are a Before and After School Program located in West Springfield, Virginia, providing caring and creative programming in a nurturing environment for the students of Keene Mill Elementary, West Springfield Elementary, Rolling Valley Elementary, and Cardinal Forest Elementary schools. After an afternoon snack and individual homework help, children participate in organized indoor and outdoor activities, self-directed play, and a weekly chapel service. We believe the time before a school day begins and after it ends are important, and we want their time with us to be filled with activities, friendships, and fun.

We are excited to continue to offer different opportunities for our families, including our Hybrid Schedule program, Teacher Workday availability, and enrichment opportunities. If you are interested in these options, fill out the interest form below or send us an email.
