After School Child Care
We are proud to successfully present programming that stimulates both the minds and bodies of our youth residents during the "after school" hours. This is accomplished by providing quality homework assistance as well as personal attention towards building positive social skills and self-esteem. The children are exposed to many positive influences and creative enrichment programs such as: Mystery Club, Book Worm Club, Mathletes Club, sports, free play, arts and crafts, special events (science fair, poetry jams, talent show, mini Olympics). Good health and nutrition habits are encouraged along with exposure to environmental awareness. Students also have opportunities to play recreational games, sports activities and explore their creativity through a variety of craft projects and special events.After School hours for Teaneck students Monday through Friday or any combination of days during the week from the start of the Teaneck Schools in September through the end in June. The program operates from school dismissal to 6:00 p.m. and follows the Teaneck Public School Calendar including snow days, holidays, vacations, as well as Municipal holidays. Children ages 5 through 13* are welcomed to register.
The philosophy of the program is to enable the child to foster their self-esteem socially, physically and emotionally through age appropriate activities.
