After School Care
Overview: Children’s V.I.L.L.A.G.E. Organization is a enrichment and recreation-based after school program housed at P.S. 181Q. The program runs in partnership between our organization and P.S. 181Q. We will meet the needs of the students, parents and school community to assist in the social, emotional and academic growth of every student.
Mission Statement: We at Children’s V.I.L.L.A.G.E believe children are valuable individuals. Through learning and love for each child we can tap into their artistic abilities as they grow and develop. With educational goals we will lead them towards college and beyond.
Vision Statement: Our goal is to be a part of every child's “village” by being an organization that implements genuine care, respect and courtesy for children, parents, teachers, administration and each other. We believe in educating the WHOLE child by enhancing and enriching their lives as they grow and mature into young adults and become college bound students. We will work with parents, teachers and the school administrators as a team toward common goals for each individual child.
