SAP Spring After School Programs 2019 Open for Registration!
K-5th After School Program:
From BCSIS and High Peaks, my assistant and I personally pick up students from their teachers after school on Mondays and Wednesdays. We gather up, play together, snack and share about our days and our lives, do an introductory activity, and then set off (either on foot or in our adventure van!) on our main activity, nature exploration and/or science lessons in nature. We will end up at my home on Gapter Rd. for free time and pick up at 5:30pm.
Middle School Program:
From Manhattan Middle School on Tuesdays, I either pick students up after school or they bike together to my house. From Platt, students walk to my house. We snack and share then get to work building and making! Our focus will be to build a farm stand where we can run a cottage business making edible and artistic/crafty things to sell. We will see what it's like trying to cover expenses and make a profit on things we make ourselves. We will also learn about marketing, presentation and salesmanship!
Days/Times: K-5th grade is Monday and/or Wednesday, from the time school lets out until 530pm. Middle School is Tuesday from 4-6pm.
What to Bring: Dress kids for the weather, with layers and extra dry clothes in their backpack. It's unfortunate to have to bring the whole group in because one student is wet or cold. Most important is footwear, for Fall and when it's warm out, water shoes they can also walk in is best. For Winter and Spring, mittens, waterproof shoes or boots, and layers including a water resistant outer layer is key.
Price/Billing: $12/hr with a small monthly fee for snack and materials. No charge for school off or teacher training days, only for program days, which are averaged by month so the price is the same each month. I invoice at the start of each month.
Missed Days: If your student has to miss a day due to illness (not choosing to go on vacation or do something else), they can make up the day on their off day if they do one day a week, or get a credit for a full-day program or summer camp.
What Students are saying about
Science Adventure Program
"Unlike other programs, rather than sit and learn about science, we actually do the stuff we learn about, and we actually go to the places we talk about."
"In SAP, sometimes we get to study zoology and chemistry, and you can actually see wild animals you never get to see."
"Now the most amazing thing I have in my life are the science days with Christina!”
What Parents are saying about
Science Adventure Program
"Now when I take Sam hiking, he asks all sorts of questions, I can see his mind working much more like a scientist.”
"My kids look forward to nothing else like they look forward to your classes!"
“I finally found something that Olivia loves enough to use as leverage to get her homework done at night.”
