After School

Our curriculum uses 26 themed units that incorporate journals and portfolios to encourage communication through drawing and writing. The typical daily structure for your preschooler might include:

  • Morning and Afternoon Circle time where the day’s themed activities are introduced and reviewed.
  • Activities in the Learning Centers to bring the day’s educational theme to life. Math, Language & Literacy activities to progressively build important foundational skills.
  • Music and movement (songs, poems and rhymes) to expand your child’s vocabulary and listening skills.
  • Outdoor/Indoor play at least twice daily to burn off energy and develop motor skills.

You’ll receive assessments regularly through weekly and or daily written reports, ongoing portfolio collections, quarterly reports and family/teacher conferences twice a year, so you can rest assured that your preschooler is progressing throughout the year. 

School Age (5-12) Afterschool Program

Our exciting and innovative summer program includes a variety of age-appropriate sports, arts, specialty and other activities, specifically designed for each group of campers.


Our School Age Camp Program allows campers to hone skills in activities they regularly enjoy while still getting the opportunity to try new activities. The Counselors has an advisory role in each group and encourage campers to socialize and face challenges together with their friends.

Campers will choose two Select/Club Activities each week that allow them more control over their schedule and where they spend their time at camp. Our School Age Camp Program gives campers the independent schedule they crave while still spending time with their group and maintaining friends.

The program takes place Mondays through Fridays from 7:30am to 8:30am and 2:45 p.m. to 6:00 p.m., a critical time to engage school-aged children in structured activities.

Busy Bees

Our Pre-K classroom is designed to help your child make significant developmental gains, communicate more successfully, and work well both independently and in group situations.Building on Preschool learning, Pre-K learning focuses on problem-solving, responsive listening and language usage, as well as social and collaborative skills, with specific lessons in:


Reading (matching letters to sounds, recognizing familiar words)
Writing (using letters and other symbols to create written messages)
Math (simple addition and subtraction, sorting and classifying objects)
Social skills (respecting others and working together)
Physical skills with complex or combined movements (jumping rope, climbing)

Regular updates, ongoing portfolio collections, and twice-yearly parent-teacher conferences ensure that you understand how your child is progressing.

Focus on Literacy! In Pre-K, your child is immersed in literacy. In-school and at-home activities are designed to improve your child’s literacy and cognition in:

• Vocabulary development: using language purposefully and precisely in thinking and communicating

• Phonological awareness: hearing and manipulating groups of sounds (rhymes and syllables) in spoken language

• Phonemic awareness: hearing, identifying, and manipulating single sounds in spoken words to recognize similarities and differences and how sounds relate to each other

• Print awareness: understanding the meaning of written language


• Alphabet knowledge: recognizing that letters are their own unique symbols and each has its own name, sound, shape, and order within the alphabet

We’re excited to share this program with your child, to promote literacy in a fun, interesting, and interactive way.
