Before & After School Child Care
For Camas School District families looking to enrich their child’s education, we offer the Extended Day Program, the option of dropping off children before school and/or picking up them after school. The program provides a family-like atmosphere that emphasizes positive interaction, self-control, decision making, and self-responsibility. Developmentally appropriate activities encourage creativity and permit children the freedom to explore and learn through play.
Development of the Extended Day Program is based on understanding of the needs of children who are at various developmental levels and stages. Our program offers a safe, accessible environment provided by a warm, caring, and responsible early childhood education staff. Parents’ values and cultural diversities are respected and included in program activities, as appropriate.
In addition, our before- and after-school program focuses on social learning. The atmosphere is structured but relaxed. It allows for small group, large group, and individual social interaction through outdoor or gym play, table games and activities, crafts, free choice, and homework help. Children learn leadership, teamwork, responsibility, cooperation, and friendship skills by planning and directing group games and activities for and among themselves.
