Firetree Place’s After-School Club is committed to helping your child continue their growth and development even after school is over.
After school, Firetree Place picks up from Curtin Intermediate, Cochran Primary, Jackson Primary, Stevens Primary, Donald E. Schick Elementary, and Lyter Elementary. We have three Firetree Place staff members that always ride on our own River Valley Transit bus and two drivers to pick up the youth in our Firetree Place vans. We pick up your little ones and get them to Firetree Place safe and sound so that you don’t have to worry! A typical day in After-School Club consists of…
During this time, the kids sit down and eat dinner as a Firetree Place family at 4 pm daily. Dinner is prepared by our own full-time Chef through participation in the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP). We are all about quality daily nutrition for the youth we serve, so we feel it’s important to foster healthy eating habits.
Alternate food items are provided to meet the needs of those with food allergies and non-pork individuals. We serve low-fat white and non-fat chocolate milk. All grains are enriched or whole-grain. Occasional substitutions may be necessary.
During this time, Firetree Place kids will play! Staying active is vital for the development and health of youth today. During this time, kids will engage in some form of recreation ranging from kickball and basketball to playing outside on nice days.
During this time, our staff help your kids with their homework and academics. Although we are not a homework club, we take academics very seriously here at Firetree Place. If kids do not have homework, then time is used for reading or other educational activities.
During this time, a number of things can be happening. Children will engage in interactive programs with our many partner programs. Firetree Place partners with different organizations and they volunteer their time to work with our children. Some examples of programs are a Scoutreach program in collaboration with Boy Scouts of America, Kids in the Kitchen in collaboration with Junior League of Williamsport, and a Healthy Me, Healthy You program in collaboration with AmeriHealth. The children will also be engaged in educational lessons and activities created and implemented by our Group Leaders.
Firetree Place will be offering tutoring services to the youth enrolled in our program at no additional cost. We take education very seriously and aim to provide tools necessary to set each child up for success. Tutoring in math and reading will be provided to the youth by a certified teacher.
