Our before-and-after school program provides a happy, club-like atmosphere where children are offered enriched learning opportunities in a fun and engaging environment. The rhythm of the program takes into account each school-age child’s desire to form lasting friendships, explore theme-related topics of interest, gain confidence in their independence skills, and experience a balance of learning and fun.
Teachers are positive role models who support the growing needs of school-agers in a comfortable and nurturing atmosphere.
Our comprehensive before- and after-school curriculum complements what children are learning in school and offers a balance of enriching learning opportunities and fun. We even incorporate homework support into the daily routine so you can enjoy family time at home.
Our school-age classrooms are places where children can relax before and after school, chat with friends, work on homework, snuggle up with a book in a quiet corner, prepare and enjoy a snack, begin or continue a craft project, or create something unique, all in an environment designed just for them. Our thoughtfully designed school-age classrooms offer the following nine activity areas:
While your child is in our before or after school program, you will receive updates through an electronic communication application which allows our teachers to share information as needed, send messages, and delight you with photos via e-mail. You are also welcome to use it to send your child’s teacher a message.
Each morning you and your school-ager will receive a warm welcome from our teachers. During this time, you will have an opportunity to connect with your school-ager’s teacher to create a smooth transition from home to school.
Your school-ager will engage in meaningful, hands-on activities and exploration projects that encourage thinking skills and help them on their journey to lifelong learning.
In a relaxed and encouraging environment, your school-age child will be provided with homework assistance by our caring and educated teachers.
Our school-age children enjoy a nutritious breakfast and a healthy after-school snack each day, often prepared by themselves, with assistance from our school cook. On school-release days, lunch is included as well.
Jumping, running, playing sports, testing new skills, climbing, and playing group games will be an especially fun part of your school-ager’s day as they enjoy our state-of-the-art playground.
Discovery and investigation are key components of the before- and after-school schedule. Our teachers will guide your child in expanding upon their own unique interests, to engage their inquisitive minds.
New Horizon Academy is open on many school release days throughout the year. To make those days off of school more fun, school-agers will often go on a field trip or have a special guest visit!
“My daughter attended the after school program at New Horizon. It was SO convenient for us that they offer this program because it allowed us to have one pick-up location. The teachers were great, and she loved the change of scenery from her school’s program.”
