Before & After School Program 2021-2022
We strive to offer children a program that is affordable, fun and safe. One of the key elements of this program is “play!" Through play, children increase their social competence and emotional maturity. Activities will include indoor and outdoor sports, group games, arts & crafts, music, dance and occasional field trips. Each day quiet time will also be offered for participants to complete daily homework.
A parent handbook has been prepared for your convenience. It informs you of our policies and procedures as well as to provide valuable information to help you to navigate the many details involved with this program. We ask that you keep this handbook in a handy place for easy reference, or please find a copy on our website (below) for your convenience. We are excited for another successful year with our Before/After School Program. Thank you for being a part of it!
