Did you know that 1 in 5 students in America are alone when they get home from school? According to this article on youth.gov “High-quality afterschool programs promote positive youth development and offer a safe space where youth can explore their potential.” And more importantly in tough times like these where mental health is a real challenge especially for our children, “Afterschool programs can support social, emotional, cognitive, and academic development, reduce risky behaviors, promote physical health, and provide a safe and supportive environment for children and youth.”
With our After School program, your child benefits from all of the following: Social and Emotional Learning, Academic support, School participation, Safety, Support of Working Families, Nutrition, and Physical Activity!
Ripley! We have room in our Before and After School program. Not only will your child get their homework done and enjoy some after-school activity with their friends, but you can also finish the things in your day you need to get done and be ready for them. We all know 3:15 comes fast when you’re a busy mom or dad. Consider our program. Email Nichole Gollhardt to sign up Ngollhardt@ywcawestfield.org.
