Polite Piggy’s Before & After Care at SWS

Polite Piggy’s — the new before and after care provider at SWS — currently provides before and aftercare at two other Capitol Hill schools, Maury Elementary School and Tyler Elementary School. VanNessa Duckett, executive director of Polite Piggy’s and a teacher at Maury Elementary, is committed to bringing SWS families high quality, comprehensive and rich programming. Since 2007, Polite Piggy’s staff have worked hard to provide for the needs of children and our families, nurture the spirit of each and every child, have really authentic relationships in our school communities and we have been immensely committed to working together to ‘get things right’.
