Much More Than Daily After School Care...
Here is a look into a typical daily schedule of what we do...
Proceeding school dismissal, the children begin after school with a healthy snack, that includes a meat and/or vegetable protein, milk, juice, and fruit.
When the snack is complete, they are separated in to their grade appropriate class rooms to complete homework. The small ratio of 12 children to one educator assures the completion and comprehension of subjects that were learned that day. This is the practice portion of the educational concepts that the children were introduced to that day. For children in the ESoL Program (English Learners) we offer translation of their written and oral homework assignments.
Once homework has been checked and initialed by the teacher, the children move onto the enrichment part of the day.
