The Little Compton Community Center After School Club is a program dedicated to the care and well being of elementary school-age children (5-12 years) during after school hours. We provide a safe and healthy program for those children in the community from 2:45 to 5:30 p.m. following the school calendar throughout the school year. The After School Club provides supervised age appropriate activities such as:
- Homework time
- Arts and crafts
- Sports play
- Hands-on science
- Linking with the Community
As the Little Compton After School Club Head Teacher I feel a sense of pride to be a part of such a community based program. My name is Karen Ferreira and I have been with the After School Club for eight years. I often tell people it’s a passion I have, working with children, although I don’t think the passion would be as strong without the support I receive from parents, school and the community here in Little Compton.
Our staff is certified in CPR, First Aid and AED.
We believe in the importance of a loving, safe and nurturing environment that respects the needs of all children. We believe in the importance of educational programs offered in a relaxed and cozy atmosphere.
We are committed to providing our children with a healthy and fun filled experience: building self-esteem, cooperation and responsibility while having fun and making new friends.
By guiding children, they develop self-direction and achieve satisfying and acceptable behavior at each developmental level. We also believe in the value of play in relation to children’s development as it enhances the four main areas of development: Physical, Social, Emotional, and Cognitive.
Our excellent child to teacher ratio and small group size addresses each child’s emotional, social, physical and cognitive needs.
