Afterschool (Ages 5 – 13)
Academic and expanded learning opportunities developed for students served at The Commons are based on the principles of Strycker’s Bay Neighborhood Council’s highly successful Youth Program.
Established in 1993, our youth program was built on the philosophy that children, when given the opportunity to grow within a safe and nurturing environment, are able to thrive academically, emotionally, and socially. Our program is designed to incorporate project-based learning by exposing students to a variety of activities and disciplines that offer opportunities for creative exploration and self-expression.
Open from 2:45 to 6:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, after school programming is provided to elementary school students in kindergarten through fifth grade and includes homework help, snack time, and enrichment activities designed to meet the individual needs of students, as voiced by their parents and teachers.
