The first thing our kids do when they arrive at our facility after their regular school programs is meet with one of our teachers to go over their homework assignments. No time is wasted. Each teacher is qualified to assist in all subject areas and is uniquely gifted in making learning fun for the kids, often incorporating a game or a healthy snack into the lessons. After completion of all homework assignments, each child is given an opportunity to go to a Learning Center of his or her choice (Dramatic Play, Computers, Reading or Writing).
The reasons for providing our After-School Care Program are numerous:
First, it ensures that our kids have access to academically enriching activities, including tutoring, to which they would otherwise not have access if left unsupervised. Too often these days, children are left to the tutelage of video games or the next viral YouTube video, when they could be putting their minds to more constructive use and having fun while at it.
Second, by providing a safe environment for our kids to apply themselves in their school work, we work to increase homework completion and engagement in school. A child who is struggling with math–who expresses frustration and disengagement in school when math is taught–will begin to understand the concepts and thus appreciate and engage with the subject more because of the extra time spent at Miracle Moments. In the end, it is our sincere hope that our work with these kids will increase graduation rates and test scores, thus preparing each child for further academic success in college and professional achievement thereafter.
Finally, we understand that all of our students represent many various forms of family units. Some have two full-time working parents; others may come from a single-parent home. We understand that it can be difficult for parents to provide direct supervisory support for their children all of the time. Miracle Moments' After-School Care Program gives parents peace of mind knowing their child is in good hands.
