During the School Year
We are an after school and summer care program located in Anderson, South Carolina for children ages 4 to 14. We collect students from many schools in the area (currently: Midway, Montessori, St. Joes, Concord, Clahoun, McClees, New Prospect and McCants) and we have students who are dropped off because we can’t get to their schools.
A nutritious and substantial snack is provided. Help with homework is available and indoor and outdoor play is a choice the child can make after required homework is completed, or if parents wish, homework is left for home time.
We transport our children to private lessons all over Anderson. There is an extra charge for this service and not all requests can be accommodated but we do get most of them allowing our students to get home earlier on school nights. We also have private tutors who work with the children here at AAS. Some of the tutors are sent here by the parents and all we provide is a quiet space. Other are paid through AAS and I broker the arrangements based on need. 20 years in Anderson has connected me with some truly awesome teachers.
On a school day our hours of operation are 2:00 – 5:45. On teacher work days and most holidays we are open from 7:30 -5:45. We are closed on Memorial Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving and the Friday after Thanksgiving as well as the week between Christmas and New Years. We open to cover most “bad” weather days at 9:30, however if we have no power we are closed. We post on channel 4.
During the Summer
We provide care for children ages 4 to 14 from 7:30 to 5:45. Each summer we have a theme that guides our activities, crafts and food choices. Our 4’s have their own class room and do not travel everyday. Their theme is FUN ON THE FARM and they have visiting baby animals in their classroom that they learn to care for.
My older children have mornings filled with crafts and free play then after lunch we travel. Bowling, skating, swimming, movies and some once per summer trips that make each week special. These trips include Kakilaki, the Art Center, inflatable water slides brought to the farm, rock climbing, special lunches out at Sumo and the Olive Garden and an end of summer trip to build a bear.
Morning snack and afternoon snacks are provided and lunch can be purchased. Calendars which detail activities and menus are available each week.
