“My son and I had the pleasure of being a part of UYKQ from the beginning and I recommend this program to everyone I know who has children. Check them out, you won’t be disappointed.”

Niambi Thomas

“UYKQ has been such a fun, easy, active safe space for the kids to spend their time after school. They’ve made new friends of all ages and had time to deepen their school relationships. They love the UYKQ staff - they are kind, engaged, and always making sure the kids are safe and welcomed!"

Liz Sytsma (and Family)

"UYKQ is an absolute gem. The activities they organize and the care they provide are fantastic. At the end of the day, my review is driven by my kids’ assessment, and there isn’t a day at UYKQ where they want to leave a minute earlier than closing. I can’t ask for much more."
