After School Care Home
After School Care - Tara Tegard
Summer has come and gone. I hope you all had a good one!
The After School Care program at Cross of Hope is entering its third year. We are an academic program. We play a lot, and all of our art and play is educational. (Let's not forget to mention fun!) We teach to the interests and needs of the children, so we have studied everything from penguins to metamorphosis to cheese. My goal for ASC is for children to grow closer to the Lord through discovering new things about the world He has created. In the After School Care program, we intend to raise confident, intelligent, loving and humble leaders in Christ.
The program runs every day we have school. Monday through Thursday we meet from 3:15-5:30 and on Fridays (and half days) we meet from 12:00-5:30. The kids eat a snack they bring from home, and have recess right after school. Then we help them with their homework and do a teacher-led activity. On Fridays, the children eat a lunch brought from home, get two recesses and two teacher-led activities. We have a rest time where a teacher will read out loud. We also prepare a snack together on Fridays.
Keep an eye on this page throughout the school year. I am hoping to post on the fun we have together, and give you a heads up on what we are planning. This first week of school will be all about our ASC rules. (Don't worry, it's going to be lots of fun!)
As you can see, we do a lot in ASC! I hope to see your child there.
