After School Enrichment Program
The Joshua Tree After-School Enrichment Program is our program for older children. The Program allows children to complete homework assignments and exposes them to an array of disciplines through five weekly enrichment clubs. We aim to help children master time-management and encourage them to explore the world around them.
The Joshua Tree after school program is currently available for K-6 students at Meredith Elementary, Kaleidoscope Preschool at Settlement Music School, Christopher Columbus Charter School, and Nebinger Elementary School. Additional schools may be added based on demand.
Children will be picked up from their school by a Joshua Tree teacher at dismissal. The children and teacher will walk to The Joshua Tree at 9th and Catharine to check in and have a snack. Each day at 4:30pm, children will participate in Enrichment Clubs. When the opportunity arises children are also escorted to Palumbo Playground.
Our After School Enrichment Clubs include:
Music: Children in the Music Club will engage in music and learn to perform together. The club explore the possibilities of performance and teach children to enjoy the many different genres of music through singing and storytelling. Music Club meets Mondays & Wednesdays.
Science Club: In the Science Club, children will learn about recycling, saving energy, and cultivating an Earth conscious lifestyle through community-based activities
Art: The Art Club will expose children to the visual and plastic arts. Children will explore self-expression through a range of mediums and materials, creating their own genuine works of art every week. Art Club meets on Fridays.
Performing Arts: The Performing Arts Club will alternate between dance and drama activities. Children will have the chance to put on plays, explore dancing, and improvise! The Performing Arts Club meets on Tuesdays & Thursdays.
Yoga: Children will learn poses and imagination-based techniques for relaxation, for play, and for staying healthy. Teaching children tools for stress management, emotional regulation through yoga, and improving focus are the foundations of this program. Yoga Club meets Mondays & Wednesdays.
