The Before & Aftercare Program serves our students’ families and community by offering a nurturing environment consistent with the principles of Imagine.
All Before and Aftercare providers are ISNM staff members and have completed extensive background screening and training.
The staff will provide a structured learning environment, as well as many opportunities for free play. Students will enjoy an afternoon snack and will complete their homework while supervised by a staff member. Students will then engage in various activities, including tutoring, board games, cards, arts and crafts, outside sports and recreation, movies and more. Snack will also be provided for child(ren) attending aftercare.
