Adlerian Child Care Centers

After School Enrichment Program 

     (Children in grades 1 - 5)

After-School EnrichmentAfter picking your child up from school, we provide time for homework to be completed with a teacher' s assistance. Following homework the fun begins with science experiments, cooking, art, and thematic research. Games, drama, block construction, books, art, sand, water and music centers provide your child with a wide choice of play areas. Weekly field trips provide your child educational and enjoyable outings with fellow classmates. Teachers lead a variety of athletic games to teach children the values of physical exercise and good sportsmanship.
