After-School Enrichment 2014-15

The school understands the need of many families for later pick-up options. Therefore, we offer an afterschool enrichment program staffed by two teachers that runs from 3:00 PM to 5:30 PM each day. Payment options include:

Annual contract rate per afternoon = $12
Month by month rate per afternoon = $15
Per afternoon drop-in rate = $20

Very much like after-school visits to Grandma's, we serve a healthy snack each day and provide a rich array of learning opportunities and relaxed discovery, all in the service of inspiring a love of learning.

Two qualified teachers, Jamie Babcock and George Mackaronis, get to know your child's interests and encourage the unique ways of learning each presents. Together they study artists like Mondrian, make their own art, mix colors, have fun with GAK, launch paper airplanes, manage their our own retail shops, reproduce cave paintings, eat s'more around the fire, occasionally get muddy and dirty, build a time machine, experiment with bird bath construction, and run around a lot! Recall the observation of Case Western Reserve University Medical School psycholigist, Gary Landreth: "A child's play is his 'work'."
