At Creative Arts we believe that our students' education does not end when they leave the classroom. Our After School program is designed to serve the needs of all our families and is offered entirely on site and until 6pm. After School spaces are available for all CACS students. The program is fee based, but accommodations can be made due to need.
K-Club serves our Kindergartners after their earlier dismissal time. K-Club includes a snack and outdoor activities until 3pm. There is an extended day option to transition to the second phase of After School activities, where they will join the first graders through middle school students.
The After School program from 3:15-6pm is a unique environment due to the mixing of ages, and very often feels family-like in nature. After School at Creative Arts is fun and enriching. Every day includes a quiet time to do homework with homework support, an outdoor recess, and a project-based activity. Our nurturing and creative staff offer a variety of project-based activities that include science, yoga, arts and crafts, storytelling, sports, construction with Legos, Zoobs, and K'Nex, and a Brio train set that fills a classroom floor. We also have card-playing with competitions, board games, and large group projects that reflect the larger themed curriculum of the school. Our students' interests drive our program, and they are a large part of the decision-making regarding what we do. Our job is to insure they have fun while extending their learning day.
Our After School staff are an essential part of our community and often get to know students in completely different ways than our classroom teachers and support staff do. While teachers change year to year, the After School staff remains a consistent part of a child's school experience. After School staff attend all professional development, health and safety trainings, and school community events to ensure program consistency.
