School-age children are still children – continuing to grow physically, emotionally, socially, cognitively and linguistically. But as they develop, five- to twelve-year-olds crave peer connection and information about the adult world, so they thrive on friendships, alliances, challenges and responsibility. Our School-Age program is designed for children five through twelve years old who are enrolled in kindergarten through 5th grade classes at several local elementary schools. These children are picked up by one of our buses at the end of their school day. We also have Summer Camp and holiday care on the days public schools are not in attendance.
Our School-Age Program offers your student a comfortable group atmosphere with learning centered around weekly thematic units. Every day, students have scheduled homework time to begin or complete homework assignments. Additionally, their classroom is well stocked with art and craft supplies, puzzles, board games, books, many manipulative toys, and items for creative play.
Our afterschool program is not just a continuation of school activities. Children need time after school to have a nutritious snack, relax, unwind, have fun, and choose what they want to do. Our small groups allow the teachers to give lots of one-on-one attention to each child. This is especially important during each day’s designated homework and quiet study time.
