We provide a second home during after-school hours—and all day most school holidays and throughout the summer—so your child can explore interests, develop positive relationships and build the skills and resilience they need to thrive.
For children ages 5–12
During the coronavirus pandemic, we’re providing a safe, connected space for school-age students to attend virtual classes and get the support they need to succeed this school year.
Our school-age educators offer your child help with homework during the school year and assist with learning retention over the summer months. We also work with you and your child to identify areas for improvement, establish goals and provide extra support to help them grow academically.
Health & Wellness
We provide healthy snacks each day (breakfast and lunch during our full-day schedule) and regular opportunities for active play and exercise. Students also have access to health education through our Super H initiative as well as social-emotional support and counseling delivered by graduate interns through the Chicago School of Professional Psychology.
Our clubs meet for 8-10 weeks at a time and create spaces for your child to dig deeper into a particular subject area or activity and have fun while learning. Club topics vary—from cooking to basketball to origami—according to student interests and areas of expertise our school-age educators bring to the program.
You can provide academic and social-emotional support to school-age children as they learn and grow.
