BEFORE AND AFTER SCHOOL
As children 5 -12 years of age enter elementary school they are beginning to develop close relationships in peer groups, can communicate more effectively with peers and adults and are better able to problem solve and use abstract thinking. To develop these skills we offer a very small and personalized before and after school program to balance with the more structured school setting. Children in this program are provided with a large variety of stimulating hands-on learning experiences to suit their needs.
