Greater Dwight Development Corporation After-School Program Has Begun

Montessori After School ProgramsGreater Dwight Development Corporation in conjunction with MSOE  is currently accepting application for a new after-school program in its recently renovated space.  Children will spend two and a half to three hours a day after school, from 3 to 5:30 PM, in a project-based program that will foster growth in the areas of literacy, math, science and critical thinking.  They have nourishing snacks when they arrive and then work in groups on projects in areas of interest. The children develop skills in working together and helping each other. There is also time allotted for outdoor exercise, homework and reading.

The After School Teacher works closely with parents and school teachers to assist each child in areas in which they need special help.  Computers are available for homework help, and students will be able to use age-appropriate educational websites, such as Khan Academy www.khanacademy.org).  The goal of the program is to foster independent learners who know how to find help when they need it.

New Haven has rich resources in the arts and sciences, such as the Peabody Museum, Yale Art Gallery, British Art Center, Yale Repertory theater, etc.  The After School program will integrate these resources into the program for enrichment.  Activities will foster creativity and stimulate an active interest in experimenting with new materials and ideas.
