Each week will have a theme of activities as well as time to get homework done and relax with snacks. Occasionally we will have planned field trips after school as well as special events in our own backyard. See below an example of a Day-in-the-Life:

HOMEWORK CLUB
Each day your child attends our Before & After School Club, he or she will have the opportunity to work on homework and join our Homework Club! The time to work on homework is built into our daily schedule. If you choose to not have your child work on homework while in our care, please make note of this in your registration paperwork.

Our Homework Club is all about having a positive and fun experience with homework. When you join our Homework Club, you receive your Homework Log and you get to earn points each day you work really hard on your homework (you earn even more points when you help your friends with their homework by listening and being a helpful friend.) When you earn so many points, you can cash in your points to buy fun things (e.g. small toys, gift cards, food, and more!)  While working on homework, each child will receive one-on-one attention and care to help work through questions and problems. Homework will never be done for a child and if a child refuses to work on his or her homework, we will not force a child, but do our best to encourage him or her to use time wisely. Any questions or concerns we have pertaining to homework will be notated on your child’s electronic Daily Report.

HEALTHY MEALS & SNACKS
Each day your child attends our morning program, he or she will receive a healthy home-cooked breakfast. We serve breakfast between 7am-8am. Any child who attends past 8am will not be guaranteed time to eat, therefore if you do drop your child off past 8am, please ensure your child has eaten before arrival. Our breakfasts contain at least 4 items: 1 fruit/vegetable, 1 grain, dairy (or juice), and 1 protein. An example of one of our breakfasts: ½ banana, wheat toast with peanut butter, eggs, and 1% or skim milk. Our menu changes daily and what was served and what your child ate will be notated on your child’s electronic Daily Report.

Each day your child attends our afternoon program, he or she will receive a healthy snack. We serve our afternoon snack between 3:30pm-4pm. Any child who gets picked up before 3:30pm will not be guaranteed an afternoon snack. Our snacks contain at least 3 items: 1 fruit/vegetable, 1 grain or protein, and 1 one drink (milk, water, or juice). An example of one of our snacks: cup of grapes, 1 cheese stick, and a glass of water. Our menu changes daily and what was served and what your child ate will be notated on your child’s electronic Daily Report.

* Special Dietary Requests: If your child has special dietary needs, please notate these on your registration paperwork. Some requests may be able to be granted and those that cannot be granted will require you to bring your child’s special food items for the day/week/month.

FUN ACTIVITIES & THEMES
Each week will have a planned theme for the week. We will base most planned activities around the week’s theme. We encourage children to have fun with the theme and be as creative as they’d like! Theme examples: Talk Like a Pirate Week; Black Hole Voyagers; Starving Artists; Rock Band Academy; Mad Scientists; and so many more! We will use an array of mediums to explore with and be creative with, such as: legos, paint, coloring mediums, paper and boxes, outdoor play, books/literature, toys, manipulatives, and more!

HANDS-ON FIELD TRIPS
Occasionally we will plan an after school activity. This will be scheduled and brought to your attention at least 2 weeks in advance. Should you choose to not have your child attend our field trip, you will need to find alternative after school care for that particular day. Most field trips cost a flat fee of $10 per child. This will be collected in cash by the due date on the Field Trip Permission Form. Examples of a field trips: trip to Cosi, nearby parks, Magic Mountain, local ice cream stores, Bexley Library, and more!

CONVENIENT ELECTRONIC DAILY REPORT
We know it’s important for you to know what your child is doing when not at home. Therefore we will continue to use our electronic daily reporting system that we use throughout all of our BungalowBranch locations. Your child will have a profile in our daily reporting system that will allow you to check your child in and out of our program along with receive your child’s Daily Report at the time of check out via email. All parents/guardians will be listed on your child’s profile and all parents/guardians will receive their child’s Daily Report via email. In addition to receiving your child’s Daily Report, you will always have the opportunity to discuss matters daily with your provider one-on-one.
