With a busy schedule, the logistics and cost of finding before and after school care can be difficult and prohibitive. To make your life easier, Apollo is conveniently offered at your school, rather than requiring transportation off-site or finding a babysitter or tutor on your own.
Apollo offers 19 different supplemental enrichment themes, which are offered every day and are included with tuition. Through fun activities, our students’ gain skills which supplement their academic development and provide exciting new experiences which they might not be able to fit into a busy school day. Administrators and parents can choose our focus at each specific school to fit your vision and needs. Take a look at some of our options!
Homework time is an important part of each day at Apollo. Our staff dedicates a set portion of the daily schedule to ensuring kids get the help they need. Through checking their work and answering directed questions, Apollo educators guide our students on the right track towards completing their tasks. We know how precious family time is during a busy week – it feels great to have your child show you that they’ve gotten the job done!
Structured Physical Activity Time
A structured physical activity time is included in each day’s schedule. Our staff is equipped with our Apollo Olympians curriculum, which includes over 60 lesson plans which are designed to be highly energetic, fun, and inclusive of all students. These group activities build flexibility, teamwork, cardiovascular health, and gross and fine motor skills. Many of the activities require strategic cooperation, which encourages students to combine mental and physical skills. Students also help set up the activities, which provides them with the knowledge and skills necessary to initiate the activities outside of Apollo, with their own friends and family. Of course, when the weather’s nice and a playground is available, sometimes kids just want to blow off some steam and play their own games. We build opportunities for this important type of play into our daily schedule.
Supervised Free Play
Study after study has shown the value and importance of unstructured play for our physical, social, emotional, and academic development. Through play, we create scenarios which help us prepare for life in a fun environment. At Apollo, we believe play is important, and our staff facilitates these crucial opportunities for students of different classes and ages to come together and enjoy themselves under the safety of trained adult supervision.
Healthy snacks that are sensitive to our students’ dietary considerations are included in each day of Apollo at no extra cost.
