School Age Before/After Care


During the school academic year, this class is a combination of Kindergarteners and after-schoolers through age twelve. The class is organized into a team. The team works on team building skills that give the students a sense of comfort in and trust in themselves and each other. As a group they feel like they can accomplish anything. Each week is a different theme, and the class experiments with new ideas and concepts that are educational and unique.


Along with Homework Club, the class finishes several chapter books as a group and has on-going arts and crafts to stimulate their minds. Our goal with this class is to teach responsible behavior and teach the children how to be well-adjusted and learn to deal with everyday problems in their community. They also take a leadership role with the entire center.


During the summer, the school age program follows the weekly summer themes of the center with projects, science experiments, indoor and outdoor explorations, and water play. Summer also includes field trips every week, including the zoo, area parks, bowling, mini golf, and other fun places.
