Welcome to the After School Program! This is a child driven program, we’ll start our day off with lunch and chosen indoor activities until each student arrives. Once all members of the classroom have arrived we’ll have a classroom meeting to discuss and agree upon our activities/learning for the day. Some of the options include exploration and large motor activities in the meadow, a walk to Westlake Park, sports, cooking projects, extended art projects…. The possibilities are endless when we follow a child’s lead! This is a new adventure and I am so excited to see where it takes us!

Can’t wait to get started –
