(5 years – 12 years)
Our school age program provides both before and after school services. We provide bus transportation to the Clinton schools (Joel and Pearson) in both the morning and afternoon. Our van drivers are professionally trained and well-versed in safety and understand that your children are priority number one. A Westbrook schools bus stop is conveniently located outside of our center as well. Before school, we provide an easy environment for transition from home. Children are offered plenty of age appropriate activities. After school care is focused on providing an easy transition from school. It is a time to wind down, but also a time for more play. We offer homework help to those that need it, as well as reading time. We encourage a love of reading with a fully stocked library. We offer plenty of time for after school outdoor play. Children involved in the school age program enjoy making new friends while enhancing their problem-solving skills and their ability to listen and communicate effectively. We provide opportunities for increasing responsibility for the children through group projects with younger children and aiding other classrooms with their work. Just because the school day is over does not mean the children stop learning when they arrive. We encourage exploration of art, science, dance, fitness, and much more. We embrace the world of technology by offering some supervised computer time. We offer unique team-building activities, educational games, outdoor experiences, as well as arts and crafts. We offer full-time summer camp care for children ages five to twelve. Each summer, a new, unique curriculum is developed. We use this to offer returning students some new learning experiences. We host a variety of in-house activities that appeal o all ages as well as a few big out-of-house learning experiences. Safety and cleanliness are very important for our center. Classrooms are cleaned daily to ensure the healthiest environment possible. All of our teachers in the school age room are certified in CPR and first aid, as well as medication administration.
