We're a school-age program and activities range from day to day. The kids are able to enjoy the flexibility while still being able to do things that interest them. While we know they need structure, the kids are allowed to aid shape it . We have found that in allowing, with our guidance, the kids to participate in the program structure, they earn a sense of ownership and a sense of responsibility to keep the program a safe, flexible, and nurturing place to be.
