Our Story


HotSpots Extended Care Program Inc. originated within the structure of Celebree School, a for-profit early child care provider, as an external provider to students attending schools in the local community. As a sister organization of Celebree, HSECP was formed to support the voices of parents requesting in-school educational enrichment that eliminated transportation.

Upcoming Events

Our passion for children does not stop when the school day ends, but extends into the nontraditional learning environment. Through a collaborative partnership HotSpots, School Day educators and Community Leaders extend children’s learning experience outside of the “typical school day hours!” Learning changes a child’s life offering opportunity, imagination and a dream.

Our Goals

Our vision is to promote academic achievement by extending learning outside of the classroom and strengthening the school-community relationships through collaboration and partnerships with educational leaders and community stakeholders.
