WE BELIEVE THAT CHILDREN ARE OUR FUTURE
We Did It! School-Age Care Society is a fresh, innovative, charitable organization which has been established to respond to the growing needs for quality and affordable programs that take place in a structured and educational environment, and that cater to the needs of children of all ages and abilities.
In establishing our organization we have recognized that the majority of school-age programs take place in unstructured environments with limited supplies and resources.
In a city with a growing population it is extremely difficult to ﬁnd programs that take place in a suitable environment, and that provide quality childcare programs at an affordable price. Let We Did It! be your answer to all of your childcare needs!
Our Mission is to provide children with a safe and nurturing environment that encourages them to learn new skills while exposing them to new and unique opportunities that exist in the world around them.
