New Haven Adventure Club meets at New Haven Elementary School, which is located at 3401 New Haven Rd. The average enrollment at New Haven Adventure Club is 36 children. Currently, in addition to the Site Facilitator, there are 6 college students employed as Site Assistants at this site.
New Haven Adventure Club meets in the school cafeteria. We also have daily access to the school's gymnasium. New Haven's outside playground has swings, a climber, basketball goals and a large grassy field.
In the mornings, a parent or an authorized adult must initial the students in on a sign-in sheet. The sheets, printed in weekly increments, have columns for the student's arrival time and for the the initials of the person bringing the student to Adventure Club. A Site Facilitator or Site Assistant will initial in the student in the afternoon; a parent or other authorized adult must initial them out in the afternoon, noting the time that they departed.
We also use a "Where are You?" pocket charts to keep track of the students. The pocket chart has 4 categories: Playground, Cafeteria, Gym, and Home. It is the students' responsibility to change their own name tag when they arrive in the morning and afternoons and when they decide to leave one area for another. They must also inform a staff member when they leave one area for another; we utilize walkie-talkies so that we may communicate with one another and ensure a student's arrival from one area to another.Morning Schedule
