ABC's program reinforces much of what the children learn in school. The program always has something very exciting happening. The children have center rotations, including but not limited to art and cooking projects, computer, drama, and manipulatives. In addition the children have a very informative and fun team time activity. Our before and after school age program has very creative art projects as well as a secluded homework area. The center has a large gym area to play a wide variety of large muscle games.
By providing a variety of activities, our program offers enriching, relaxing, fun-oriented experiences. We always keep in mind that children are unique and develop at varying intervals. We encourage each child to use his/her potential and we provide new experiences for growth. It is our purpose to help each child develop to the best of his/her individual ability and to provide an atmosphere in which the child can learn to share and be a supportive member of a team. You may find us having an ice cream social one day and then working on a community project the next. We have long term art projects, great thinking games like Mancala, Blokus, Rush Hour and Guess Who. Each weeks programming is designed around a theme which will incorporate drama, constructions, literature or cooking activities.

This Location Meets COA Standards
COA's After School Standards represent a merging of NAA's standards and COA's 8th Edition Standards, and include three different sections of standards: After School Program Administration (ASP-AM), After School Human Resources (ASP-HR), and After School Programming and Services (ASP-PS). The set of standards are based on generally-accepted elements of best practice, outcomes-oriented, effective in advancing quality, and responsive to the unique needs and diversity of after school programs. COA's standards are grounded in a long-standing, widely held belief that children, youth, and families benefit when a program enhances its capacity to achieve its mission and validate its impact. “Children and youth who participate in After School and Youth Development programs gain the personal, social, emotional, and educational assets needed to support healthy development, increase well-being, and facilitate a successful transition through childhood, adolescence, and into adulthood.” Council of Accreditation Core Purpose
