SPARTA — With the new school year just beginning it has been a busy time for the folks at K.E.E.P. Operations Director Linda Conrad took a moment out from her busy schedule to discuss the many benefits offered by K.E.E.P. “We had an amazing summer," she said. "The kids had a great time, swimming at White Lake and enjoying the varied activities camp provided. But now its time to look ahead to the rest of the year. K.E.E.P. offers care for children aged six weeks to six years in our L’l Keepers program (held at our main office off White Lake Road) as well as before and after-school care on site in many of Sussex County's public schools and Frelinghuysen (in Warren County) in what we call Project Keep. Parents like having their children stay right at their school for care and kids love the educational enrichment activities provided." K.E.E.P’s rates are competitive and K.E.E.P. accepts NORWESCAP contracted payment for funded clients and never charges those parents excess fees as some providers do. It also provide unlimited financial aid to qualified families. For more information, visit the website at www.keepkids.org or call the main office at 973-383-2213.
