After School Program Philosophy

The objective of the Program is to create a fun and safe experience every afternoon that encourages children to build good relationships, learn thru the arts and demonstrate responsibility during study time. The children are continually supervised. Students are divided into smaller groups in separate classrooms at the appropriate times.

The daily routine is punctual and organized.  Example: Arrival – Snack time – Dress for Class – Study time – Dance class- Dismissal

Eligibility

Students ages K through 5th grade are eligible for participation in our program. Every child must have mandated forms completed on file at STEPS prior to the first day. No one will be permitted to attend without this information on file. Parents of 5-year-old students must be aware of out program suitability to these youngsters. A 5 year old in our program must be independent enough to participate in our program.

STEPS wants you as parents to concentrate on your job with the peace of mind that your children are having fun after school, making good use of their time and staying healthy with the Arts
