We are excited to be expanding our afterschool program this fall to be on both Mondays and Thursdays from 2:45pm-5:30pm! We also have Summer Camps for children 5 and up!
This program offers parents a slightly longer work day or just a bit of free time, and offers students a various opportunities to build Social Emotional skills, as well as participate in exciting offerings and adventures. Click here to see some of the summer camp and afterschool outings!
As with all of our programs, Social Emotional well-being is our top priority. Thus, an essential component of the afterschool program is offering children space to voice feelings and ideas, to work through conflicts with one another, and even to brainstorm solutions to challenges they are facing outside of Patchwork. Students learn NVC (non-violent communication), as and collaborate as a team to make group decisions. The mixed-age group allows for mentoring and learning from one another, and students also at times have opportunities to interact with the preschool students.
In addition, students can champion ideas such as field trips, group or individual projects, they can ask for support with homework, or take some time to rest and get a snack after a long day.
For me, it’s so helpful to have a few extra hours during the week and extremely convenient when the van picks them up. I also appreciate that this helps reinforce the social emotional learning that occurred during her preschool years and gives her an outlet to work through some of the school day stresses.Allison, parent 2019

My child likes the freedom to explore, spend time in nature, and build relationships. My child feels respected by the teachers and has learned good conflict resolution skills.Parent
