Before & After School Care

We are excited to be partnering with the YMCA to offer before and after school care for our students.

Program Goals:
Academic success and developing positive lifelong skills is the overall goal of the before and after school programs. This is achieved through the following:

  • Encouraging self-discipline and self-worth in each individual child.
  • Providing opportunities to make new friends.
  • Help children understand the changing world, respect people of different ages, abilities, incomes, races, religions, cultures, and beliefs.
  • Provide children with the opportunity to become leaders and supporters.
  • Helping children develop skills to interact with peers in a positive manner.
  • Providing a consistent daily schedule to help with feelings of security and control in the environment.
  • Offering a variety of materials and activities for varying attention spans.
  • Offering free choice activity times to foster independent choice, sharing, cooperation, and exchange of ideas.
  • Offering a homework area where children may work on homework and get assistance.
  • Providing games that may encourage a variety of skills, including language skills, math skills, and an interest in science.
  • Encouraging healthy eating habits and lifestyle following HEPA and CATCH standards.
  • Supporting and assisting the parent to strengthen parent-child relationships and to increase the importance of the family unit.
