TEAM HUMANITY AFTER SCHOOL
Team Humanity After School is a supercharged enrichment program geared toward the advancement of elementary and middle school students after school. Students will be involved in structured, entertaining activities that will help them develop and strengthen their academic, social, emotional, and physical skills. Parents will be happy to know that their children will always be supervised in this safe environment.
We provide a safe and welcoming after school environment, with a wide range of activities and opportunities for our students to grow. We inspire our students to be lifelong learners, encourage creative expression and build their sense of self-confidence. We encourage our students to think big, increase engagement in their communities, and make positive contributions to the world around them.
In the TeamHumanity enrichment programs, we believe in learning by doing – our project-based curriculum challenges our students to learn new skills and apply their knowledge by creating works that have a direct impact on the world around them. Play is also a very important part of the learning process, and we provide our students with plenty of opportunities to explore on their own under the helpful, safety-conscious eye of their instructors.
Team Humanity offers several different supplemental enrichment themes, which are offered every day and are included with tuition. Through fun activities, our students’ gain skills which supplement their academic development and provide exciting new experiences which they might not be able to fit into a busy school day.
Homework time is an important part of each day at Team Humanity. Our staff dedicates a set portion of the daily schedule to ensuring kids get the help they need. Through checking their work and answering directed questions, Team Humanity After School educators guide our students on the right track towards completing their tasks. We know how precious family time is during a busy week – it feels great to have your child show you that they’ve gotten the job done!
Structured Physical Activity Time
A structured physical activity time is included in each day’s schedule. Our staff is equipped with our Team Humanity Olympians curriculum, which includes over 15 lesson plans which are designed to be highly energetic, fun, and inclusive of all students. These group activities build flexibility, teamwork, cardiovascular health, and gross and fine motor skills. Many of the activities require strategic cooperation, which encourages students to combine mental and physical skills. Students also help set up the activities, which provides them with the knowledge and skills necessary to initiate the activities outside of Team Humanity, with their own friends and family.
Supervised Free Play
Study after study has shown the value and importance of unstructured play for our physical, social, emotional, and academic development in after school classes. Through play, we create scenarios which help us prepare for life in a fun environment. At Team Humanity, we believe play is important, and our staff facilitates these crucial opportunities for students of different after school classes and ages to come together and enjoy themselves under the safety of trained adult supervision.
Healthy snacks that are sensitive to our students’ dietary considerations are included in each day of Team Humanity at no extra cost.
