S.A.F.E  Overview

The S.A.F.E. Program provides an inclusive atmosphere where children are nurtured and encouraged to have fun and cultivate friendships. In the S.A.F.E. program, we honor families by allocating time for students to complete homework. We offer assistance with homework when needed. Students may spend homework time reading or being read to. The kids in the S.A.F.E program will have the choice to do arts and crafts, play large group games, have dance parties, play board games and much more to suit all kid's interests. We offer a light breakfast in the morning and a snack in the afternoon.  We are a nut-free program.
