After School Program

After-School Program

Our school-age program goes beyond mere after-school supervision. We designed the program to augment the cognitive, linguistic, fine motor, gross motor, social-emotional, and self-regulatory learning your child is doing at school. Our teachers provide one-on-one tutoring and homework help to our students, followed by a free-choice exploration of our classroom centers. Students can choose from a variety of areas in our classroom dedicated to specific interests including art, literacy, reading, science discovery, STEM, and technology centers. We end the day with gross motor time on one of our two playgrounds, where our students have the opportunity to get some fresh air and interact with one another in an active environment.

The development of positive social skills is a key component of our after-school program. Our teachers and staff use the PBIS framework in their interactions with their students in an effort to keep classroom management consistent from the beginning of their school day until they are picked up from our center. We will reinforce your child’s positive behavior with the same language they hear at school, praising their choices to be safe, kind, and responsible learners. 

We are open for business during CPS teacher workdays and snow days! Our teachers write plans for exciting STEM demonstrations, arts and crafts, literacy activities, and research projects to supplement these days off from school.
