Why are we the best?
Proehlific Park provides a child care program that emphasizes character development through academics, athletics, and fellowship. Our coaches help develop sports skills, lead guided homework huddles, teach good sportsmanship, effective communication, and encourage positive relationships.
Monday through Thursday our students huddle up in smaller groups to work on homework. Grades K-3rd are allotted 30 min and Grades 4th-8th are allotted 45 min to complete homework. Coaches are there to monitor progress and answer questions along the way.
When school is out, come on in to Proehlific Park! We offer child care on days when school is closed on teacher workdays, holidays, winter and spring breaks, and inclement weather closings. Our students love participating in a variety of activities including team sports, cooperative games, arts and crafts, and more! Members and non-members are welcome! *Extended Hours: 7:30am – 6:30pm $55 Full Day / $40 for Early Release Day *On inclement weather days the hours may vary.

Reviews of Program
I love being here at Proehlific because I have learned so much in the short time that I have been here, from learning to love all different types of sports as well as meeting all the new kids that join the program. I love making them feel welcome the same way I felt welcomed and loved on when I came to Proehlific! I am grateful for Ms. Angie, the coaches, Mr. Ricky and everyone here that has gone above and beyond to make sure that we have a safe and fun environment but most importantly, a place to be a kid.
"I have never been to a program where my son gets upset when we pick him up early! He loves it so much that he asks to stay and be the last one to leave in the afternoon!"
"My son was worried that as a middle school student he would be placed in a group with “little kids”, but was very pleased to learn that there was a group of just middle schoolers that he could hang out with!"
"My daughter is a little shy and isn’t particularly interested in playing sports. I was relieved that she could still participate in the program and have fun playing other games and activities. She doesn’t feel out of place and has made many new friends. That makes my husband and I very happy!"
"My kids LOVE it there so much and want to be there after school this year. Konrad has been there off and on since he was 5 and I am so comfortable with all the coaches and staff there ….everyone there is so good to both of them and I want to keep them in that environment if at all possible."
