The After School Program is designed to provide tutorial support in a safe and fun environment. We offer a variety of activities for students that include arts and crafts, outdoor activities and a wide range of indoor activities all supervised by licensed staff members.
We offer three grade appropriate groupings to promote student involvement in all activities. We offer a Kindergarten class and a Grade 1-2 class that meet in separate classrooms. These classrooms are kept to a low teacher to student ratio insuring that students receive strong academic support and supervision. Older students in grades 3-6 are separated into groups according to activities offered. All students are expected to participate in the homework portion of the program which is 40 minutes of quiet academic study. Staff will assist students with homework and/or offer tutorial help. Students who do not have assigned homework are required to bring with them a book, magazine or other reading material for this time period.
There are a wide variety of activities for all students to participate in such as Theater Arts, cooking, basketball, flag football, kickball, board games, arts and crafts, computers etc and field trips (school vacations and summer program).
A nutritious snack is provided for the afterschool program and breakfast, lunch and snack is provided for our school vacation and summer programs. Examples of snacks are yogurt with graham crackers, fruit with crackers and cheese all served with milk and juice.
