Structure & Variety: The After-School Schedule

At school dismissal - Our staff members receive children directly from their teachers and escort them to the school cafeteria for snack and attendance. Once all students are present and accounted for, our staff leads a group warm-up that includes calisthenics, stretching and dance, to get bodies moving for the beginning of after-school.

Club Time - The sports, arts and enrichment classes that you select when enrolling your child in the program are taught by certified teachers, teaching artists and activity specialists. These classes take place from 3:30 - 4:40 PM and 4:40 - 5:50 PM.

Choice Time and Daily Electives - Before and after classes, students choose from a list of structured and open play activities, led by our counselors. These activities include: homework help, gym sports, yard play, indoor games, arts & crafts, music and more.
