About After School Connections

Our Philosophy and Mission

 

Our philosophy is to provide a quality enrichment after school program that inspires creativity, motivates the mind and ensures a safe, fun and affordable environment for our children.

 

After School Day

Counselors submit a monthly lesson plan that corresponds to a weekly theme.  Some of the themes included are educational and very creative such as Mystery week and Futuristic week. Every week students will learn a new theme based upon the calendar year or current events. Activities are subject to change without prior notice.  

Specials taught by our highly trained staff are implemented into the curriculum along with STEAM, a multi -disciplinary way of teaching different types of learners by incorporating science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics into the lesson plans.

The programs structure ensures that each student has a portion of the afternoon incorporating physical activities along with study session during our classroom time. Special events are planned for early release days.
