Activities & Programming
Day Care and ASAP offer the children a variety of structured and unstructured recreational and enrichment activities. The activities are designed to provide the children opportunities to “learn through play” in a stress-free and fun environment. The children have a choice of many activities each day and participation is optional for all activities.
The activities include recreational and board games, arts & crafts, music, drama, dance, reading and special projects and events. The children also have opportunities to participate in a number of other enrichment activities, such as community service and environmental projects, cooking, science, language and literacy projects and games.
On Monday through Thursday at Thomas Jefferson and M.E. Henderson, the children are offered an opportunity to work on homework in a quiet, supervised setting. The homework period generally begins around 4 p.m. and runs for 45-60 minutes.
Parents can obtain a “Homework Contract” at Thomas Jefferson and M.E. Henderson. This contract is a signed agreement between the parents and children detailing their expectations regarding homework. The staff will use the “contract” to encourage attendance in the homework area on the days indicated on the contract.
