The mission of the Westside Early Childhood and Before & After School Programs is to provide a safe, engaging educational environment for children ages 18 months through sixth grade. The program offers developmentally appropriate opportunities for children to grow and develop socially, emotionally, intellectually, and physically with the support and guidance of competent and compassionate adults.
Club “66” is dedicated to making extended school time a safe, fun and enjoyable experience. Arts and crafts, physical activity, center time, group activities, music, free movement and computers are among the many activities we offer. Children will be encouraged to participate in activities, but may choose to read, listen to music, do homework, or just have some quiet time to themselves. One of the goals for this program is to create a structured environment with many options so the children feel free to participate in any activity they choose. We strive to make Club 66 a place where children can’t wait to come to every day. Our staff uses a facilitative approach, encouraging and guiding when necessary.
