The place to be for After School and Summer Camp. We have a lot to offer. Check us out!
Your child’s safety is our first priority. When picked up at each school, our bus drivers make sure each child is accounted for prior to departure. Upon arrival at Jump Start, your child is checked in again by their age-specific teachers. Classes are structured by age and student/teacher ratios. No child leaves without pre-approved parental accompaniment. Parents must sign their child(ren) out each day when they pick up.
Each counselor and Jump Start team member has completed a thorough interview and hiring progress in addition to a background check. In addition, our staff is regularly trained in the ‘Jump Start’ way of child care, ensuring that each child is treated with the love and support they need and deserve. Our counselors truly care about your child and make it a point to create a personal relationship with each one.
Jump Start is founded on Christian morals and uses a faith-based approach to child care. Your child will be involved in fun activities (use of our indoor gym, basketball, swings, gaming areas just to name a few) in an encouraging and uplifting environment. Good words, right actions, and fair play characterize our activities. Jump Start also has a zero tolerance for inappropriate language and behavior.
Jump Start is located at the center of Spartanburg County District 5, conveniently and closely located to all schools we serve. We are located just off of Highway 290 at 253 Tucapau Road Duncan, SC. (turn at Circle K)
Jump Start shares its facility with our sister company, RTGC (Rhythms Tumbling, Gymnastics, & Cheer), which offers your child access to our spacious 10,000 square foot building, including gymnastics gymnasium / indoor play area, classrooms separated by age groups, with lounge areas for the kids, toys centers, gaming areas, and teaching tools.
Quality child care does not have to be expensive. At Jump Start, you will find affordable weekly and daily options for both after school and summer camp programs. Sibling discounts provided for each additional child. We also offer a 1-day Shuttle Service option to pick up your child on the day they attend gymnastics or dance classes at one of our sister companies - Rhythms Dance Co & RTGC (Rhythms, Tumbling, Gymnastics and Cheer)
*We also offer a 5% discount for full-semester or full-year payment. Learn more about our family-friendly rates in the program area that interests you.
