Curriculum

Adventure Club’s curriculum is based on state and national accreditation standards. The schedule combines structure and choices. Each schedule is site specific but will always include the following: snack time, recess, Jump Start Our Learning Time (JOLT), and free/choice time. JOLT is unique to Adventure Club in that the staff provides a structured learning time with a creative approach.

Children may participate in the following:

Clubs: Weekly theme-based learning activities change each week. Children participate in activities that incorporate science experiments, arts/crafts, manipulatives, big/small motor skills, music and chants, reading, math, and even foreign language. The clubs correspond to the monthly newsletter and calendar announcements.

Literacy Activities: Children may also sit in the quiet area and enjoy a book, work on writing, or listen to others read.

Technology: Children may choose to play educational games on the site’s laptops and other technological devices.

Homework: Help Children may work on homework with the assistance of a staff person. Parents and teachers may request children to complete homework during this time or children may voluntarily make this choice.
