BEFORE & AFTER SCHOOL CARE
We bus kids from Burton and Mill Plain Hearthwood Elementary
In the After School program we have a relaxed atmosphere that is safe and fun. We provide security, freedom, achievement and respect with boundaries that allow for creativity, follow-up of their grade school day and release of energy.
Our goal is to create a positive learning experience and continue to prepare children for a positive future. We use the "learning through play" theory as our base. During the school year, the children have the opportunity to explore the activities in the classroom, have an after school snack, enjoy a large motor skill activity, and a creative activity. During the different vacation times, they follow the theme based curriculum that is done in the rest of the center, as well as, have the opportunity to go on field trips.
THE ACTIVITIES INCLUDED IN THE CLASS ARE:
- Building/creating props for school plays
- Putting on puppet shows
- Make own puppets
- Create story line
- Recycling program

- Outdoor/Field Trip Excursions:
- Educational trips, Library and Parks
