At Giggles Drop-In Childcare we think of you and your kids as our extended family! We are so grateful that the Kaboom readers have voted us not only the BEST summer camp in the upstate but also the BEST afterschool program, as well as a finalist in the preschool and field trip categories.

Why is our summer camp the best?? A couple of reasons:
1. Did you know that our summer camp goes on a really fun field trip EVERY DAY?!! Places like Shipwreck cove, Kangaroo Jax, skating and more. The kids at our camp have a blast!
2. EVERYTHING is included!! Snacks, lunch, ALL activities and we even wash your kid’s camp shirt daily and fill their water bottles.

Why is our after-school program the best?? We have low ratios!! We have a ratio of 1:14 max which gives kids the personal care that they need with daily homework help, snack, and fun activities. Kids have a great time making friends and relaxing after the school day is done.

Why is our preschool awesome?? Our preschool provides flexibility with an awesome play- based curriculum. Kids learn while having fun too and we can adapt to your changing schedule.
