Carelot Clubhouse is committed to providing a safe, comfortable supervised program for children in kindergarten through sixth grade. The Program promotes individual self-esteem and provides opportunities for recreation, relaxation, and creative learning experiences. The Program offers age-specific and mixed-group programming, cultural sensitivity, and mutual respect between the children and staff. Family involvement is welcomed and encouraged.

The Carelot Clubhouse program offers a personal, creative, safe, and nurturing environment. The overriding strength of our Program lies in our integration with the Public School curriculum and community, our respect for each other (child, teacher, parent/guardian), and a friendly learning atmosphere that takes each child's interests and uniqueness into account. The Program is committed to enhancing your child’s out of school experience and includes the following elements:

· staff and programming that model mutual respect, tolerance, cooperation, and conflict resolution; developmentally-appropriate activities in a nurturing and culturally sensitive environment;

· a variety of recreation, enrichment and creative learning activities for different interests;

· time for indoor and outdoor play as well as homework assistance:

· regular communications among school staff to enhance activities.

By participating in a mixed age group, the children learn group interaction, responsibility, taking initiative, cooperation, as well as respect for one another. Children learn to make appropriate choices, use free time wisely and develop hobbies and skills for life-long learning.
