Who We Are

Welcome to LASER!

LASER is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization formed in January 1984, by parents of children at Laurelhurst Elementary School, and incorporated as “Laurelhurst After-school Enrichment Rooms” or “L.A.S.E.R.” Since 2013-14, LASER has operated a second site at Bryant Elementary School. We now go by the name “LASER Childcare.”

We have a team of qualified personnel who are committed to providing excellent programming for children. LASER is directed by an Executive Director and overseen by a volunteer Board of Directors.


During the school year, we offer a licensed after-school enrichment program for children attending kindergarten through sixth grades. On in-service days during the school year, vacation periods, and over the summer, we offer day camp for children ages 5-12. We also offer other fun and engaging events including Parent Night Outs, Family Nights, Curriculum Nights, and more! A staff-to-child ratio of 1:10 is our goal at all times.
