How it Works

Blackbird Academy provides flexible care that works for families.

Participating children may be at Blackbird Academy for anywhere from 0 to 40 hours per month.   You can use your hours however you like — say, 2 hours one day, 6 hours another — whatever works for your family.  Time is booked using the calendar on our website, so you can plan your child’s schedule whenever and wherever it’s convenient for you.  If spaces are available, you can make reservations with as little as one hour’s notice.

The highest quality care at $15/hour

Each family pays $50 per month to maintain their membership at Blackbird Academy (Please note that if your child is enrolled in one of our classes, your membership fee for the month is waived!).

As members, you will pay just $15 per hour for fantastically fun, educational care provided by enthusiastic and highly qualified educators.  Again, you can purchase as much or as little childcare as you need, and that amount can vary from month to month and can be booked with less than an hour’s notice, at your convenience.

Book at your convenience

We’re open from 8:00am to 5:00pm Monday to Friday, and 9:00am to 1:00pm Saturday.

We’re committed to providing an engaging and stimulating learning environment, with new activities every day.  Each week, we have a new theme at Blackbird, and create a rich educational web in which children learn about a topic from many angles.  We provide a positive, nurturing environment that celebrates who each child is, and who they’re becoming.
