The staff plans a lot of Out of the Box activities for the children each day, especially team building activities and group games. The children have daily routine activities such as a quiet homework time, social studies, language art, and creative expression activities. This year the staff has worked very hard with the children with new and exciting activities. Our center is always a very active and fun learning environment. The staff at Eldersburg takes a different approach to their weekly activities which encourage children to stay on their toes.
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.

This Location Meets NAA Standards
The NAA Standards for School-Age Quality specifically address the indicators of quality programs reflected in current research. Examples include meeting the developmentally different needs of youth, 5-14 years, involving children and youth in program planning, providing positive interactions between children and youth and adults, and ensuring a safe and challenging environment for children and youth in and out of school time.
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
