AFTER-SCHOOL REGISTRATION FOR QUEEN CITY STEM ACADEMY COMING SOON
At T.A.P.S Inc, we know for a fact when kids try different things, they increase gain confidence, increase their skill level and discover new areas of interest, which is why we strive to offer a host of clubs and activities to enrich each child. Our Before/After School Programs are designed to meet the needs of working families with school-age children. Our sites are well staffed and are conveniently located within the schools which provide many advantages. Besides having access to playgrounds and equipment, gymnasiums, and audio-visual material, children remain in a familiar environment where we partner with teachers and school staff when assisting the child with their homework and needs and parents trust that.
T.A.P.S, Inc is a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Organization.
The Before/After School Program complements, rather than duplicates the school day, by giving children the opportunity to explore and build on individual interests and skills in a positive and enriched environment. Students can relax and unwind during our structured free play sessions, join a special interest club, play sports and games, and socialize with peers and adults. We are also really BIG on character and incorporate a character development curriculum to promote healthy change from inside out. We have found parents appreciate the efforts we take that “get kids off social media and video games and into a club exposing them to various activities they might not otherwise experience.” With that said, we offer an environment free of cell phones, tablets and other electronics. We would rather have your children wrapped up in conversations and activities and be able to truly experience what the program has to offer.
Our staff are continuously trained on our program standard.
During holiday breaks, school closings and summer programs, we create a safe and nurturing environment for your child to succeed and continue learning on track.
Individual empowerment and self-determination have always been strong components of the organization. Directed by Jermaine Smith, the organization was conceived and organized to address the social, intellectual, and recreational needs of the Charlotte, North Carolina community, to counteract failure, and to assist in the successful transition to life in a positive environment. We teach character matters.
We offer a safe, fun learning environment where kids develop their social skills through team-building and are provided homework assistance. Our goal is to create a place of care for parents as they finish up their workday. Snack is provided along with a mix of educational and recreational time.
Starting at 6:30am, your child’s morning will consist of reading, playing games, puzzles, light music and empowerment to get the children going about their day. We dismiss the children at the bell schedule and our staff make sure all children are in their places.
In the afternoon, the children will be dismissed into the After-school program where they will be greeted by T.A.P.S Staff, placed in their dedicated groups, checked in and provided a snack. There is a period where the children get homework help to jump-start any assignments sent home, and after the homework period, the children go into their clubs and activities where they will remain until the programs ends at 6:30pm.
