Secure Your Child’s Spot for Summer Camp!

Our summer camp is filling up fast, but spots are still available! Our jam-packed summer activities now includes a swimming program. Our campers love going on our weekly field trips or experiencing our on-campus special programs. We include the fun elements our children love—music, art, sports, STEAM, and talent shows for older campers! 


A unique option at All Day Learning Centers is that parents can tailor their summer camp experience for their children—adding activities—based on what you and your child prefer. This “choose your own adventure” approach to summer camp is one of the elements that sets our camp apart from others!

Students Dressed to Impress for Week of the Young Child

Each of our classrooms celebrated The Week of the Young Child in April. All Day Learning Centers joined over 60,000 schools nationwide to bring attention to young children's and their family's needs and uplift the organizations that meet them. We celebrated with dress-up days and fun activities each day.



Little rockstars jammed through our halls for Music Monday dress-up day. They kicked off Week of the Young Child with a parade around the school in fun outfits with instruments in hand.











Adorable princesses and pirates enjoyed a fruit salad picnic on Tasty Tuesday! While outside for their picnic, they met the Easter Bunny and hunted down eggs on our campus.







Our students built the tallest towers they could for Work Together Wednesday! They dressed as their favorite community helpers, including firefighters, police officers, superheroes, and even some of our ADLC teachers.










On Thursday, students were asked to wear as many colors as possible to match the vibrant art they created throughout our school. Teachers hung up large pieces of paper outside and covered the classroom tables so everyone could stretch their creative muscles through drawing, coloring, and painting.












Thank you to all parent readers who joined us for Family Friday to finish celebrating the Week of the Young Child. Students came to school dressed as what they want to be when they grow up and enjoyed afternoon snacks with their special visitors.


Local Author Visits Students to Share Her Book

Author Karen Rostoker-Gruber visited our classrooms to read her beloved book, “Rooster Can’t Cock-a-Doodle-Doo,” a story about kindness, gratitude, and empathy in a barnyard full of animals. This story blends beautifully with our Kindness Curriculum, ensuring our children learn to tend to their emotions, self-regulate, and connect with their peers.

Be a Hillsborough Hero at Upcoming Blood Drive

Mark your calendar for a blood drive on Saturday, June 10, 2023! So many members of our community are in desperate need of life-saving blood. Donations benefit them and children like our student Harrison who was diagnosed with leukemia last year. Join us at the Hillsborough Elementary School blood drive to help our community in need of blood donation.

Save the Date for Spring Concerts

A Month of Celebrations

Eid al-Fitr

Our classes celebrated the Islamic holiday of Eid earlier this month. This festival commemorates the end of Ramadan, and families typically enjoy food, games, and gifts for children. Our Director, Melinda Rushing, gifted each child a goody bag full of treats. Each class watched a video describing why people celebrate Eid and what it represents. They also did a coloring page, and a parent came in to read a book.

Earth Day

We celebrated Earth Day on Friday, April 21! The children colored pictures of the earth, and we learned why we all need flowers and plants. Each student flexed their green thumb by planting a flower to bring home and watching it grow.
