Preschool of America offers a safe, convenient program for after-school hours, school holidays, and other school closings. The overall goal of the after-school program is to help children develop valuable skills while encouraging the smart choices and healthy habits that last a lifetime. We provide a nurturing, stimulating, and fun environment where children further their learning experiences and explorations. Our centers pick up children from neighborhood schools at the end of each school day, including days when there is early dismissal. We provide a nutritious afternoon snack each day while kids socialize with their friends.
Student needs are met through warm interactions with teachers, who provide help and guidance with daily homework, reading, studying, and special projects. They work with children one-on-one or in small groups to complete their school assignments. Teachers also provide enrichment activities and time for independent learning to help children build on what they already know.
The after-school program encourages activities that foster teamwork, helping to build a child’s confidence, self-esteem, character, and social skills. Children are also given the opportunity to play word and board games, create arts and crafts projects, participate in music and movement activities, and enjoy physical fitness. Teachers take children outside for neighborhood walks or to local parks or playgrounds when weather permits.
Our staff guides and encourages the children in completing daily written homework assignments and assists them in studying for tests and exams. The teachers also help the children to strengthen their reading and math skills through enrichment lessons and games.
