Our After-school Programs
On Site After-school Programs — Academic Enrichment and Positive Alternatives for Children Ages 5 to 18
Para Los Niños’ After-school Program has a school-based After-school Program which provides care for children attending our charter elementary and middle schools, ages 5 to 11, each weekday, before and after school and during school vacations. Activities include tutoring and homework help as well as cultural, recreational and other educational activities. The After-school Program promotes literacy and educational attainment through a variety of programs tailored to meet the needs of low-income children.
In 2002-2003, program staff created "My Values Project," so that children could explore universal core values such as trust, respect, responsibility, compassion, and patience, in a non-judgmental, participatory environment. Each weekly curriculum theme is chosen by parents and is explored through creative activities, community service activities, recreation, parental involvement, and field trips.
