Kindergarten through third-grade children come for before and after school care and all day on school release and vacation days during the school year. Instructional practices in a high-quality, school-age program foster strong relationships and learning among the children.
Our School Age Summer Program includes sports, field trips and challenging activities so the learning doesn’t stop when the school year ends.
School-age children need a safe, interesting afterschool environment where they can develop skills and relationships in a positive manner. We encourage this development with age-appropriate activities that include social, physical, creative and emotional opportunities for growth.
Leadership skills and conflict resolution are focuses for this age group. Individual interests are honored. Decisions about classroom materials and the environment are made jointly with the children. School-age children are encouraged to work in teams and share in decision making and problem solving.
Enrichment activities include field trips and interactions with community people who visit the classroom. The program promotes fun through games, project-based experiences and hands-on, experiential learning.
