After School & Summer Camp Club

A Fun and Educational Child Care Program  in Fort Mill, SC

After-School Programs Throughout The Year

Creative Kids offers after-school programs and a fun summer camp at our Hands Mill campus for year-round activity. During the school year, your child is welcome to participate in our After School Club and enjoy continued fun and learning. During the summer months, your child can pick up where they left off by participating in our adventurous Summer Camp.

“Creative Kids” – A STEAM Based Center

STEAM means we strengthen the foundation of STEM by helping kids enhance their critical thinking skills through the intersection of art, technology, and learning. We have dedicated spaces (Makerspaces) for kids to create mixed media works of ART, write code for video games, and bring robotics to life at our centers.

Where your child can be a creative kid! Where invention is encouraged!

Homework Done!

At our Creative Kids of Hands Mill campus, we know the importance of your child getting homework done for the day. Our team provides time, space, and assistance for your child to complete his or her daily homework assignments.

Sign your child up for “homework time” and we will check their agenda to ensure they are meeting their homework requirements. We’ll also coordinate any materials they may need to “get it done!” with success.

The Creative Café

We’re proud to encourage culinary skills at our after-school facilities. Our Creative Café at each location is focused on child nutrition. We give kids a safe space to write new recipes and explore different food groups. Children are allowed to learn about the basics of safety in the kitchen, food preparation, and the safe way to cook. Our Creative Cafe also allows children to enhance their taste by trying new foods that are healthy for them.

A snack break after school each day is not just snack time. It is planned by the Kids for the Kids… How Creative!


Makerspaces are simply designed spaces at our facilities where children can be safe, creative, and have fun at the same time. All of our Makerspaces are well-designed for STEAM-based projects and activities. Messy and Gooey – Pop and Fix – making cool concoctions that intrigue the child’s natural wonder and imagination in a safe and well-supervised space. SCIENCE IS FUN!

Musical Instruments are also available and we have a Drama Stage with Music, Lights, and Sound! Performances that kids write and make costumes for are the best!

Students will have opportunities to collaborate with their peers, develop presentations and feel accomplished as they learn and present them using our green screen and videography equipment.

School Days Off

When the students are scheduled for an “out of school” day, we have fun workshops they can participate in like puppetry, drama, and culinary arts!

We are available to be your child’s home away from home.

These days are well planned, with activities and space to meet your child’s needs for the day.

Celebrate Your Child’s Birthday With Us

Need a fun place to host your child’s birthday party? Our Hands Mill facility is available for your family to rent and host a birthday party for your child. Saturdays and Sundays are dedicated days for these events. Contact us for all the details.

Summer Camp at Hands Mill
