A SAFE PLACE TO BUILD FRIENDSHIPS


Tuesday Mission:

We Are Better When We Are Together

 

 

 

Building Relationships -A 10 week after school program

To help create connections, community and friendships for our kids!

Our approach is unique and effective. We build on foundations of self-regulation and provide enrichment, learning and play through the arts and other recreational activities. We add therapeutic support from various specialists in the field of education, art, psychology and recreation.

Our programs attract a diverse group of students. Children who have been successful in our groups can typically participate in small group settings independent of a 1:1 teacher (ratio 1;4).  Children work in small groups, deepening their connections and interests with peers.  Groups combine work and play. This small group structure of an after-school program is designed and run by specialists who can help socialization, self-regulation and feelings of acceptance and worth.

These experiences will promote practical experiences and skills in real-time.

Feedback from our groups have been awesome! Often children remark that this is their “happy place”.
