The Kids’ League After-school Program
We understand the importance of a child’s after-school experience. That’s why our program is designed to help your child grow and learn while also providing them an environment to explore on their their own. The daily components of our program include:
Homework Time: Once the children have arrived from school and settled in, we encourage them to complete their homework responsibilities so as to allow them to enjoy the afternoon as well as quality time at home.
Kids’ League Enrichment Clubs: (see sampling of club offerings below) The Kids’ League offers a variety of clubs each afternoon. These clubs cover a variety of activities suitable for children of all interests to participate in. The children are challenged to exercise their thinking skills with a Math, Spanish and Science club. They can also use their creativity in our Arts and Crafts club. Our popular Cooking Club has become a favorite among the kids.
Outdoor Physical Activity Time: Children play outdoors for fresh air and unstructured recreation. When the weather is unfavorable, we provide indoor games and activities to allow for physical recreation.
