Our after school program provides an environment that works on the cognitive, social, physical, and emotional well being of the child while they have fun gaining valuable skills in arts, language, technology, and sports! More importantly we strive to provide children a safe and loving place where they can explore new talents and learn about the love of Jesus for them and their community.

Here is a brief description of our goals for each of the specialty classes as well as some cool facts on why we value each of our classes!

• Arts: Elliot Eisner, a professor of education at Stanford University, offers a deeper understanding of the role of the arts in a child’s life: “The arts teach children that problems can have more than one solution and that questions can have more than one answer. The arts celebrate multiple perspectives. One of the large lessons kids can learn from practicing the arts is that there are many ways to see and interpret the world.” Our program explores drawing, painting, sculpting and much more!

• Language: One of the most important reasons to learn a foreign language is the stimulation it offers your mind. According to studies by Bruck, children enrolled in foreign language courses demonstrate stronger cognitive skills, particularly in the area of creativity. Our program will offer Spanish classes!

• Technology: The use of technology can help students understand and retain concepts in different and better ways. Through the use of technology, students can gain a greater sense of self-initiative to learn and explore new topics everyday! We will introduce children to programming and design thinking!

• Sports: According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, "Participation in organized sports provides an opportunity for young people to increase their physical activity and develop physical and social skills."
