Our After School Program is shaped around providing a physically, socially, emotionally, and spiritually safe place for children entering 1st grade through 12 years old. Healthy snacks, arts and crafts, sports equipment, and outdoor play spaces engage the body and the imagination. Homework times and homework help encourage academic development. Our 14-1 child-to-adult ratio and our small size (24 children) allow for one-on-one academic coaching. Chapel and the integration of Biblical stories provide opportunities for spiritual growth. Another aim is to develop cognitive social skills. We intentionally teach empathy and lead children through conflict resolution. We build a cooperative environment, actively working against exclusion or playground power dynamics, teaching children how to work through these situations and put themselves in other people’s shoes. Cliff Drive is much more than a place to be after school; it’s a place to thrive and actively learn.
We are a fully state-licensed program, and we offer after school pick up from Adams, Monroe, and Washington Elementary. Intentional schoolwork time with homework assistance available.
Sign up for the month, for the week, or, even, for only certain days or days of the week.
Flexible and drop-in schedules available. See our Current Rates page.
