After-school can be a critical part of your child's development - in Missouri, children in after school programs are taking part in physical activities, getting help with homework, and receiving a health snack and meals. In a growing digital age, we feel it's important that the kids in our care are able to take part in all the above - swimming, running in the gym, and of course, having time to do their homework. Part of our after school philosophy revolves around the family - we strive to be as communicative and collaborative as possible with a child's guardians as we work with them after school. Using tools like ProCare Connect (an app that allows parents to message staff, see sign ins/outs, and more), director conversations at sign in/out, and more, we hope that we meet this mission daily. (For more information about after school programs and their impact, feel free to check out the After School Alliance here.
