Teresa Hoskins, School Director
Thank you for your interest in our Before and After School Program serving Kindergarten through 5th grade. I have been the Director of our program since it opened in June of 2004. As a Norwalk parent and resident myself, I am very pleased we are able to partner with the Norwalk Community School District and offer our program on-site at both Oviatt and Lakewood Elementary Schools.
Our program is organized in a club-like atmosphere. Your child can choose from a variety of carefully planned activities including arts and crafts, music and culture, reading, writing, drama, athletic and cooking. The club-like atmosphere is designed to offer your child the freedom to choose the projects that interest him/her while giving them a sense of independence. Our teachers will help your child with homework after school, in addition he/she may choose to relax, have a snack and play board games with friends. Each child is able to explore his/her interests and to interact with other children who share those interests. Our students, parents and teaching staff enjoy a community within a community atmosphere. It is such a pleasure to have former students return to our program to teach the next generation. I invite you to schedule a visit so that you and your child can see our program in action and how it may enhance your student’s early primary education years. We would be pleased to have your family become a part of our community.
