MISSION

Our mission is to enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.

 

PHILOSOPHY & GOALS

The Club will meet the child’s physical, social, and emotional needs.  Based upon play and social experiences, the program will compliment, not imitate the school day.

 

The needs of the children will be met by creating an environment that:

  • Provides for the development of self-esteem in selection, structure, and balance of activities offered.

  • Offers children a base of warmth and security provided by caring staff, in which they can all grow, respect, and enjoy each other.

  • Fosters individuality, decision making, problem solving, and interest exploration.

  • Encourages and provides freedom and creativity within set limits.

  • Provides nutritious foods that meet the health needs of growing children.

 

The needs of the parents will be met by a program that:

  • Provides security of a safe and caring environment.

  • Involves parents in planning, communication and provides accessible parenting information and programs.

  • Suggests special services as needed.

  • Creates a bridge between school and home hours.

…all at no cost to the family.

 

The needs of the community will be met by providing a program that

  • Provides quality child care services.

  • Prevents the development of undesirable behavior patterns by providing constructive activities, skill development, and mentors.

  • Shares and builds upon existing resources.

  • Recognizes the important contributions of the Boys & Girls Staff.
