Before and Afterschool Enrichment
Today's Child Learning Centers has been retained on an exclusive basis by a number of Delaware County school districts to provide before- and after-school enrichment programs. We also provide before- and after-school enrichment programs in our own centers and include transportation to and from local schools. The programs serve school-age children, up to 13 years old.
Each month's activites are based on an overall theme and detailed lesson plans on each them are created by the classroom's lead teacher.
In our School-Age Enrichment Program, children arrive at a center in the morning before school and can take part in various self-directed activities.
Parents who wish to bring along breakfast for their child may do so, as long as the child arrives by 7:45 a.m. and the meal requires no preparation.
For students attending schools with breakfast programs we will, at the parent's request, escort the child to the cafeteria for breakfast.
At the end of the morning sessions, children are escorted to either their bus or elementary school classroom, whichever is applicable.
In the after-school portion of the program, activities are designed to allow children to stretch their muscles after a long, hard day's work at school.
Homework support is built into each daily schedule. This support, however, is optional. If you want your child to work on homework at Today's Child, help is available. But you can also request homework be saved for later.
Children in the after-school enrichment program are provided with a healthy snack upon arrival at the center.
Full-day enrichment programs are also available when children are off from school on select school holidays and in-service days.
On days when children are off from school and will be in the enrichment program for the entire day, parents are required to send a morning snack and a nutritional lunch. An afternoon snack will be provided.
All-day care should be arranged in advance with the Business Director for each center and may carry with it additional fees.
