Child Care ("Challenger Care")

Before/After Care Program

The Before/After Care Program is a safe, fun, and caring environment for our students. A variety of supervised games, crafts, and enrichment opportunities are offered, as well as snacks, scheduled homework time and daily opportunities to socialize with friends. It is licensed by DHS as a childcare program. It is an extension of the SNU Lab School and is a well-loved service of our parents.

Before/After Care is a business and as with all businesses, certain guidelines must be followed and all obligations met. We believe these policies will protect this service and ensure that the children who attend will be well cared for and safe while at Before/After Care.


The program is open to all Lab School students. An enrollment form must be filled out and turned in for your child to be considered enrolled in Before/After Care. (This applies to full-time students or drop-in students.)


All staff undergo a background check and meet or exceed all requirements set by the state of Oklahoma’s DHS and SNU Lab School. The program maintains a staffing ratio of one adult to ten children at all times. In addition, the DHS inspectors visit the programs regularly.
