After a full and productive day at school, the children are ready for relaxation and fun. The after school experience is a happy, healthy, and engaging one at The Meliora School. The experiences and curriculum that guide this program are especially tuned to the developmental needs of the six-twelve year old child. Children have the opportunity to participate in activities that challenge their creativity and provide a social and recreational outlet framed in thematic learning units complete with homework support and character education emphasis. The curriculum provides project based learning ideas which have meaning to the students and are engaging and creative. Cooperative play is encouraged through games, exploring sports, and group arts & crafts projects.Children are provided a healthy snack and plenty of open space to run, jump, and climb every day (weather permitting). Television, Computer, and Game Console choices are available on a limited basis and vary per location (request specifics at tour).
This part of our program is available for both regularly enrolled students as a supplement to their before and after school needs or as drop in program for school holidays (with registration).On days off of school, students join us for a full day of fun complete with educational, physical activity, and recreational based field trips to a variety of locations. Excursion destinations during the past year include:
Gladiators Game and Autograph Session (MLK Holiday)
Apex Museum (Black History Month)
The Atlanta History Center
The Georgia Aquarium
Bowling with Behind the Scenes Tour
The Yellow River Game Ranch
Swimming at Indoor Public Pool
The fun continues over the summer with weekly field trips and swimming with water play! What better way for kids to fully enjoy their time off from school than by spending it engaged in a variety of educational and recreational activities with friends in a positive social environment! The Pinnacle Summer Discovery curricula are packed with imagination and enrichment and are centered on theme based weeks….for examples and specifics, visit our summer camp page.
