The Before and After School program maintains accreditation by the Council on Accreditation. The program offers developmentally appropriate curriculum, high-energy activities, and expanded learning opportunities in a safe and healthy environment. The program welcomes all eligible 5-12 year olds to take on the challenge and join this fast moving program. During school breaks and summers, this program becomes a full day camp. Field trips, swimming, bowling, nature walks, computer challenges, science experiments, and group activities ensure that each full day is fun and exciting for participants.
In addition to daily Power Hour (homework time), both School Age facilities offer daily lesson plans and long term projects. Lesson plan curriculum is based on 4-H and Boys and Girls Club programming, educational standards and the interest of the youth in care! Numerous clubs are offered throughout the year such as cooking, sewing, science, sports, writing, jewelry and Junior Staff. Each room in both facilities features a main focus (art, science, literature, and sports) as well as a wide selection of manipulatives to choose from for independent play. The children may choose what room they want to go in by using our famous safety board.
