After School Program Info

Our program is designed for working parents and will ensure that all children accurately complete his/her homework and have an opportunity to participate in a wide array of extracurricular activities.

We pick up from most local public and private schools and can assist you with transportation if your child’s school is outside of our area. All children arrive at our facility promptly after their school dismisses. Our program begins with a light snack and afterwards children immediately begin his/her homework. Children work in groups divided by grade that are assisted by one or two counselors.

Our staff takes the time to go over the material and will ensure that all children come home with their homework completed accurately and are able to demonstrate an understanding of the subject. We offer pick up at 6:00pm or 7:00pm.

After School Homework/Test Prep

Homework assistance is the focus of our program.

All children are grouped by his/her grade and work with one or two counselors until all homework is completed.

Counselors are trained in all subjects and current curriculums across all of the grades that we serve.

Teachers assign homework so that your child can better understand the work given in the classroom; therefore we make sure that every child understands his or her homework before the end of the day.

Our staff is equipped with all materials and tools to complete every assignment given from kindergarten through 8th grade.

Grades 3-8 will receive three months of intensive test preparation for both state ELA and Mathematics examinations.

NYS licensed teachers give these workshops once per week per subject.

 

Daily Routine

All of our school buses and vans leave our facility at 2:00pm with our staff members as chaperones.

All children are picked up at their schools dismissal times and brought back to our building.

At this time a light snack is served and the groups have a chance to socialize.

Counselors promptly begin homework after snack is completed and work with your child until all his/her assignments are complete.

Activities begin around 4:30pm and are only open for children whose homework has been completed and checked.

Children that have not yet finished their homework will have the opportunity to join the activities at a later time.

For children that take a long time to finish their work, there is no rush, they can work comfortably until they are picked up.
