The Before & After School Program runs from 6:30 am to 6:00 pm excluding the time when children are in school. Depending on the services needed, the program provides before school care which is called The Breakfast Club, After School care, and for those kindergarteners who get out of school mid-day, Camp Kindergarten. The Breakfast Club participants are served a light meal and are encouraged to participate in morning conversation and activities that help get the brain going. They are then dismissed when school starts, warmed-up and ready to learn. Camp Kindergarten participants are picked up from their classroom and escorted to our program center (on campus) and are then engaged in curriculum, activities, and experiences that enhance their kindergarten education. The program encourages self-awareness and community, and offers a veritable treasure trove of kid-amusement in a inviting and fun atmosphere. The After School program provides sports & outdoor activities, music, dance, drama, and visual arts. Recreational leaders assist with homework assignments, provide a nutritious snack, prepare social skill activities, fun projects and experiments. The Before and After School program is a life-enriching program that takes place in a fun and safe recreational environment.
