Philosophy Statement
The after school program recognizes the importance of elementary and middle school education focusing on appropriate and sequential development practices for the whole child. Anansi utilizes an activity based and integrated curriculum, realizing that young children learn best through active manipulation of their learning environment. Learning centers are organized so that each child has the opportunity to self select an activity or project in his or her area of interest: the arts, science, constructive materials, puzzles, games, inventions, and dramatic play.

Curriculum Statement
The Anansi Charter School after care program uses play as the primary mode of learning, supporting the active engagement of the children in their choices of activities. The children are encouraged to choose from a variety of centers prepared by the after school- teacher. The curriculum is designed to provide open-ended exploration and experimentation promoting each child’s social emotional development.

This program will be administered by Anansi Charter School on the School campus. This program will operate on Mondays through Thursdays from 3:45 to 5:30 PM and on Fridays from 1:45 to 5:30 PM. In addition to accommodating working parents, this program is intended to provide enrichment to the participating children in the areas of the arts, science, physical activity, literature, cooking, social skills, chess, and computers.
