What sets FAST Extended Care apart from other after-school programs?

All Extended Care teachers are educated and experienced with elementary and middle school students and provide academic support during the 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 recording their homework assignments and completion time. 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 and our teachers engage with our students, by playing games and doing STEAM activities. One teacher remains indoors during recess for additional homework time/assistance, for students with seasonal allergies, or for those that need a break from the weather. 

We follow the same FAST emergency procedures that your child is familiar with during the day.

What is a typical afternoon in FAST Extended Care?

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 go directly to extended care following dismissal –no need to leave the building. Our staff waits outside the classroom to receive your child. Students drop off their belongings in the room, wash their hands, and return to sanitized tables for snack time.  Students are offered a choice of snacks, fruit, 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 organized activities or free time.  Following outdoor activities, students return to their classrooms for games, friendly competitions, reading, free time, socializing with friends, or additional homework time.  Many students ask their parents to pick them up later in the afternoon, because of all the fun they have with us!
