The Youth Zone for school agers
Our Before School Care and After School Care Programs or The Youth Zone provides a nurturing, supportive and educational environment for our students before and after their school day.
The Before School Care Session (5:30 A.M. to 8:45 A.M.) begins the child’s day in a calm and organized manner. Educational games and table activities, storytime, and independent play comprise the program’s early hours. Family-style breakfast is served from 7:00 A.M. to 8:30 A.M.
After School Care Session 1 (12:00 Noon-3:30 or 7:00 P.M.) begins with outdoor playtime, with naptime to follow. After nap, a snack is served and outdoor play commences once again. Back in the classroom, directed activities are planned to engage the children in story time, art projects, music and dance. Independent play time with games, books, and toys completes the day.
After School Session 2 (3:30 -7:00 P.M.) is designed for our kindergarten and first grade students as well as elementary students from selected area public schools. Snack time, and outdoor play begin the afternoon. The Brain Power Hour follows, which provides 60 minutes of student- selected learning activities such as supervised homework, computer assisted learning, reading activities and math games. Teacher directed projects as well as student selected activities complete the afternoon.
