Furthering Education Through School-Age Programs

Safe and Friendly

At the end of a long day at school, your child is ready to relax, snack, and engage in fun activities. To meet this need, we created our school-age program for working parents with children who need a safe and friendly place to go before and after school. 

Drop-Off and Pick-Up Services

Paducah Day Nursery offers AM drop-off and PM pick-up services available. Local schools like McNabb and Morgan provide transportation to and from our facility. We also offer transportation to and from Clark. 

Exploration and Play

We offer a wide variety of games, music, arts, and craft activities. When weather permits, a large portion of their afternoon is spent outside. Learning centers are still a part of the school-age program, with many options available for your child to explore, spend time with others, and learn new skills.

Experience the Benefits of Sensory Play

At Paducah Day Nursery, sensory play is a core component of our education programs. What is sensory play? It includes activities that stimulate your child’s sense of touch, smell, taste, sight, and hearing, as well as learning that engages movement and balance.
