Our After School activities include, but are not limited to, the following: cooking, art, movement and homework. If you are interested in enrolling your child with our After School Program or have any questions about enrollment, please contact our Director, Ms. Valerie Hoelscher.

Description of Location & Daily Schedule
Our After School Program is located in the large auditorium on Esperanza School’s property. The auditorium features a large stage for original productions, fun indoor activities such as a pool table, a concessions stand for “Freaky Fridays” (afterschoolers can purchase small treats to celebrate the end of the week), an outdoor sports area, a large playground and an outside theatre space. There is a specialized homework area where experienced After School Counselors are on standby to help your child with any homework areas and weekly progress reports are sent home every Friday to help you keep track of your child’s accomplishments! Our counselors have added their own personal touch to the auditorium with brightly decorated bulletin boards and customized cubbies to provide that home-like feel for your child to enjoy after a long day at school.
The After School schedule starts upon arrival. Your child will start his or her afterschool adventure with a healthy snack to fuel their fun. After snack time is ‘Stage Time’ where any important announcements are made, such as birthdays or welcomes. After ‘Stage Time’ is ‘Ancillary Rotation’, which is a rotation of age groups between fun activities such as cooking, art, and movement. Any afterschoolers who have homework
are not allowed to join their ancillary groups until they have finished their allotted homework time in the Homework Room and had their progress report filled in by the After School Homework Counselor.
If there is any time left in the day after â€˜Ancillary Rotationâ€™, the after-schoolers are able to choose between inside quiet time or outdoor play. If there are any special circumstances concerning your child's care, communication with your child's After School Counselors and our administration will ensure that your child will receive the best care to your specifications.
