Before and After School

After-school programs play a crucial role in helping kids avoid unhealthy situations.  Recent studies show that children who experiment with drugs, alcohol, or cigarettes are more likely to do so when left unattended after school.  Children's Academy of Mason provides a safe and fun atmosphere and an environment for positive socialization. Time, space and support is provided for helping kids complete homework assignments, as well as high speed Internet access. Tutoring is also available for those children who need extra help in problem subjects. 

Enrichment classes are offered to children in our after school program as well. You can enroll your kids in on-site karate lessons, Webby Dance, or tumbling.  We also offer expanded Sign Language, French and Spanish-as-a-Second Language instruction for the children. 

Our teachers prepare special schedules for after-school activities that offer kids choices of open-ended activities to encourage creativity and expand on cooperative skills. Children may help out the teachers with banner or sign making, spend quiet time writing in their journals, or explore and pretend in Center Time. Each day also includes plenty of opportunities for play and exercise outdoors; or indoors with table games, arts and crafts, air hockey, ping pong or football. 

Special activities are planned for school holidays, and unexpected snow days promise outdoor fun, movie time, or special visitors.  Our parents love the hot breakfast we provide before seeing the kids safely onto the bus.  After school, a nutritious snack awaits. If you expect to arrive for pick-up after 6:00pm,your kids and their friends can enjoy a homestyle dinner prepared by our on-site gourmet chef.  Special activities are planned for school holidays and unexpected snow days promise outdoor fun, movie time or special visitors.

Before and after school care is available for children in Kindergarten through 4th grade.
