The Tucker Maxon Extended Care program provides exceptional childcare both before and after school for our busy families. Extended care opens at 7:30 am. When school begins at 8:30, the children are escorted by staff to their classrooms. When classes end, children are accompanied by their teachers to the Extended Care rooms and checked-in with an Extended Care staff member.
During the afternoon, there is ample time for a healthy snack, art activities, reading a good book, working on homework and playing with friends of all ages. We are outside each afternoon and when Oregon weather prevents us from utilizing our beautiful playground, we always have our full sized gym for the children to use. Our afternoon session ends at 5:30 pm each day.

Joe was introduced to Tucker Maxon in 2012 when he enrolled his daughter, Molly, into the preschool program where he quickly became a fan of the staff and students. Joe grew up on a sheep farm in rural Iowa so is used to running around and herding, skills that come in handy on the playground and the gym. He graduated from the University of Northern Iowa and has decided to continue his education with a Master’s in Early Childhood Education as a result of the positive experience at Tucker Maxon. Most of Joe’s prior work experience has been in customer service and training in a variety of industries.
