The After School Program provides a warm supportive environment for children from grades K-6 to play, do homework and relax in the after school hours. Children interact with students from many different grade levels. We believe that, after the structure of their day, children flourish and learn by being together, problem solving and simply being allowed to talk, play and enjoy each other's company. Outside play is a major part of After School time. After School is available starting the first day of school for grades K-6.

After School is a PLAY GROUP. Students can interact with children from many different grades in an unstructured way: playing outside, playing games, writing, drawing, reading, etc. We believe that after the structure of their day, children flourish and learn by being together, problem solving and simply being allowed to talk and enjoy each other's company. Outside play time is an important part of our After School timeAfter School is a HOMEWORK CLUB. All students are given time to start homework. Younger students who have homework work in the After School classroom. Parents who prefer that homework be done at home can request that as well.
After School is an EMERGENCY CARE and TEMPORARY CARE program. If there is an emergency situation which requires that your child remain at school on a particular day, the After School Program can provide care at short notice. In addition, if there is a need for temporary short term care (perhaps parents or other caregivers need to be out of town), After School can be used just for a few days or weeks.
After School is for WORKING PARENTS. The After School Program provides care until 5:30 pm each day for parents who work. Our program is reasonably priced and supervised After School allows for participants in OTHER SCHOOL SPONSORED ACTIVITIES. Students may come to After School before or after going to other school sponsored activities.
