The School Age Program strives to promote the social, physical, educational, and emotional growth of all children in a safe, caring, structured environment
The mission of School Age Programs is to offer an inclusive program that offers a variety of program options for parents of elementary and middle school children for participation in a safe, structured, affordable program in an atmosphere that nurtures the social, physical and educational development of children.
The School Age Program currently operates 24 after school program sites and 8 morning program sites that include 24 elementary schools and four middle school programs. Our program participants are in pre-kindergarten through eighth grade with a portion of those students with IEP’s (Individual Education Plans) which include special needs ranging from ADHD and developmental delays to speech impairments. The suitability of these students for inclusion in the before or after school program is determined by an assessment process though HPRD Therapeutics and allows us the opportunity to provide services to a diverse group of students with special needs.
Morning programs begin at 7:00 am and operate for approximately 2 hours per day. Afternoon programs have staggered schedule start times with the majority of programs beginning at 2:05 pm with all programs ending at 6:00 pm. After School programs average 3-4 hours per day.
There are 95 employees that support the operation of School Age Programs on a daily basis. These employees are spread throughout the 29 (before and after care) fee based school program sites. We offer our staff 3 mandatory trainings per year that are a minimum of 4 hours each giving staff the opportunity to fulfill the 12 hours required for after school professionals each year based on National After School Association standards. Trainings are planned and implemented by our program coordinators partnering with many City and Hampton City School departments as Resources. Coordinators also ensure that all staff completes mandatory CPR and First Aid Training.
School Age Programs has maintained a record of low price high quality programs making them affordable for most families with Weekly rates of $45.00 and $40.00 for the 2nd child. AM Program rates are $20 per week. We also have available five-day passes $25.00 am and $50.00 pm. Five day passes may be used any day during the school year and expire the last day of school. In addition to these low rates we also participate with the Department of Social Services Child Care Provider for qualified families. Parents or guardians can check with their caseworker to obtain eligibility.
Each of our programs offers homework time and a snack followed by planned activities, which can include arts and crafts, indoor/outdoor sports, enrichment programs, seasonal projects and other special activities. For a consistent balance of activities each program has a monthly calendar that guides the leader in implementing a well-rounded program no matter where the program may be located. All program sites also receive Enrichment programs that enhance the students’ exposure to cultural, educational and physical activities to which they may not ordinarily have access. Each program site receives an average of 11 enrichment programs per year. A significant number of those programs are provided through different divisions of Parks and Recreation such as the Rock Wall, Clean City, Sandy Bottom Nature Park, the History Museum and the fitness program along with 4-H programs. These activities are brought to after school at no cost or very low cost to each program site. SAP enrichment staff and professional service vendors supplement these programs.
During the summer months School Age Programs operates 4 Adventure Camp Programs, with approximately 40 children each, a Club 11-15 Camp for Pre-teens and teens with approximately 65 students. Camps operate 7:00 am – 6:00 pm Monday-Friday. These camps operate in partnership with Hampton City Schools and the Teen Center who each provide space for our summer 8-9 week camps.
