After School Program

Dragons After School, our after school program, keeps children active beyond the end of the school day. Students participate in a variety of extended learning activities to help them discover their interests as well as a study center, unstructured play, organized games, outside time, and more! Students can enroll on a term basis, one to five days a week, or daily drop-in.

This will be a different Dragons After School Program as necessitated by the Covid-19 situation. Because we are severely restricting the number of people who have access to our building, we cannot engage outside providers in the after school program.  We know that some families need after care for their children, and we are focused on being able to provide this service in the safest possible manner.

Our top priority for the Dragons After School program will be to follow CDC guidelines so that we can provide a safe environment for the students. In order to accomplish our intended purpose, the students will remain with their school day cohort in after care. This will result in smaller teacher to student ratios in after care than in previous years. In addition, the students will remain in their classroom following dismissal with their assigned after school teacher. A snack will be provided, gym and/or outside time will be scheduled along with socially distanced small group activities. Older students will also receive homework help if needed. Tuition prices will remain unchanged from last year so that we can provide this more intimate environment for our students.
