Our school agers program includes breakfast and free play in the morning and snack, homework time, a discussion time and free play. We know that children need to blow off steam when they get off the bus; on good weather days, they can go and play on the playground. Inside, the children have a choice of activities: drawing and coloring, fuse bead creations, legos, puzzles, board games and much, much more. For the Christian education piece, they might read a devotional and discuss what they learned and work on developing some aspect of character education.
During the summer, we run an all day summer camp for our school agers. They visit the library to check out books to read, have people come in to teach art and magic, have a weekly movie time and do water play. They also take field trips to places like the Great Lakes Science Center, Roseland Lanes, the Cleveland Zoo and the Macedonia Rec Center.
