WHAT WILL A NORMAL DAY LOOK LIKE?
In short, CARE this year will look a lot like school! Children will be separated by grade into individual classrooms where they will sit in desks. Classrooms will have instructional aides and counselors to assist students with schoolwork and focus on assigned learning objectives. We will be working with area schools to communicate and ensure that children remain focused on current topics and assignments.
We will have several rooms dedicated to enrichment activities (art, music, drama, athletics, computers). Children will have outdoor recreation time - both structured and unstructured. Children will eat lunch and snacks at the program.
The day will be separated into 4 activity periods.
Instructional Periods (AM/PM)
There will be an AM and PM instructional period of approximately 3 hours each. During instructional periods, children will work on their assigned schoolwork and/or learning objectives for 2 hours and engaged in enrichment activities for the remaining hour. Students will be required to bring their own device to complete virtual learning assignments. The specific time between activities will be adjusted to accommodate the different ages and attention spans.
Roughly 11:00 - 1:00, midday activities include lunch and indoor/outdoor recreational activities. We have access to a dedicated playground, cafeteria, and City-County Gym across the street for our programming. This period will have significant entries and exits as children leave for PM school sessions or arrive from AM school sessions.
End of Day
The final few hours of the day (3:30 - 6:00) will return to recreational programming for most students. This includes organized games, crafts, and other activities. There are several schools who have full day schedules, and those students will be having instructional time immediately upon arriving at the program.
