ASPire Extended Care Program

Registration for the 2019-2020 school year is OPEN!

Are you a parent in need of full-time, part-time, or occasional after-school care for your child attending FAST?
Look no further! FAST offers extended care beginning the first day of school, Aug. 12, 2019). ASPire Extended Care is part of FAST and is staffed with FAST employees. Most of our after-school staff is beginning their 3rd or 4th year of employment with FAST.

What sets ASPire Extended Care apart from other after-school programs?
All ASPire teachers are educated and experienced with elementary and middle school students and provide academic support during a designated homework period. Teachers are trained to assist students with Singapore Math, as well as all other subjects. Younger students provide their teacher with their homework folder, while older students sign a daily homework log indicating their homework assignments and the time of completion. All teachers are first aid/CPR/AED certified and have access to an AED onsite. We encourage proper physical education and social skills in a fun and safe environment. We follow the same FAST emergency procedures that your child is familiar with during the school day. One teacher typically remains indoors if there is a need for additional homework time/assistance, if students have seasonal allergies, or for those that need a break from the outdoor weather. Our teachers engage with our students, playing games and doing activities.

What is a typical afternoon in ASPire extended care?
ASPire Extended Care is held in the upstairs classrooms of FAST’s Student Hall, which remains locked and attended by the Director at all times. Students come directly to extended care upon dismissal – no waiting for carpool, no waiting for shuttles or buses, no leaving the building. Our staff is always waiting outside the classroom to receive your child. Students drop off their belongings in the room, wash their hands, and return to a classroom with tables that have been sanitized for snack time. Students are offered a choice of snacks and a drink (including peanut-free, healthy, organic, and kosher options). Following snack time, students begin homework, and are provided chromebooks as needed. As students finish their homework they go outdoors for playtime and organized activities. Following outdoor recess, students return to their classrooms for games, competitions, free play, reading, or additional homework time. Most students ask their parents to pick them up later, because they have so much fun with us!
