School-Age Children



What is your child doing after school? Darlene’s Wee Care 4 Kids offers before and after school programs for children up to age 13. We offer a dedicated space, homework support and review, and additional opportunities for academic and social development, as well as an escort to and from school.


Skills That Children Will Learn

Unfortunately, not many schools have the same school hours as working parents’ work schedules. But, when it comes to the care of your child, you want something more than childcare that simply keeps a watchful eye on them. At Darlene’s Wee Care 4 Kids, our teachers act as an extension of your child’s school and your family. Our before and after school programs reinforce the lessons at school while allowing children to relax and play after a long school day. We offer nutritious snacks, homework help or tutoring, and plenty of indoor and outdoor play space to allow your kids to be kids!

Children in our before and after school programs can take advantage of all the great daycare services we offer and you can rest assured that your children are safe, entertained, and spending their time productively. To enroll your child in before and/ or after school care in Upper Darby, contact our staff today!

What Families say

Testimonials About Darlene's Wee Care 4 Kids

I just wanted to let you know how happy and grateful I am that your school, your students, and your staff made my baby boy feel loved, welcomed, safe, and happy yesterday. All he talked about yesterday was how happy and well behaved he was. My baby boy walked into that facility yesterday and said “Hi!” and walked out yesterday so happy. He told me all about his day and was ready for the next day. The smile on his face, his whole posture was everything to me. I’m so happy I picked this school! I CAN FINALLY SAY MY BABY IS HAPPY, I ACCOMPLISHED A GOAL FOR HIM, AND GRANTED HIS WISHES WITH A NEW SCHOOL that he named “DARLENE’S VIRTUAL LEARNING SCHOOL.” Thank you! Thank you! I can say that I feel good and am not worried about his care while he is with y’all!

It is so important to find a place that you can trust. I have had such a great experience with Darlene. The staff is always helpful. They provide great feedback and communication. They are wonderful and have helped me and my daughter with a smooth transition. She is a happier child, which makes me a happier mommy!

For the past nine years, I’ve gone to work with ease and reassurance knowing that my children are in the best of care at Darlene’s. From the owner, Mrs. Darlene, to all of the teachers and support staff, they exude professionalism, integrity, and warmth while caring for my children. I am a single mother raising two young boys to become responsible men and having that extra support in their lives, enforcing positive behaviors, is truly a blessing. From the cleanliness of the facility to the stellar education and loving staff, I give Darlene’s Wee Care the utmost praise.
