What Parents Say

Apollo has been a wonderful after school program for our 1st grader. He loves it there and gets a great mix of outside active play, fun, creative projects, and help with homework everyday. They obviously really care about the kids and are great about communicating with the parents about what is happening there. I would recommend this program to anyone looking for high quality after school care

It was great! So much more was offered than l expected. The kids were learning new concepts and doing experiments. It was not just a babysitting job to Courtney, and she was wonderful.

My three children love ❤️ going to Apollo aftercare, this was my first year back at work full time and I was concerned about their care. I am very confident and comfortable with the care they receive at Apollo. Ms. Maria is amazing.

This review is for the Ventura, CA Apollo program. It’s great and comprised of really caring people. They have been getting better each year. My daughter learns more Spanish through this after school program than through her school actually. It’s a lot of fun for her and she even has her homework finished before coming home 🙂
