School Curriculum

At the Y, we use proven, research-based curriculum aimed not only at expanding the children's minds, but also at building the whole child, from the inside out. Children learn values and positive behaviors, and can explore their unique talents and interests, helping them realize their potential. That makes for confident kids today and contributing and engaged adults tomorrow.

We pull from a variety of programs and curriculums including:

Literacy: AfterSchool Kidzlit

AfterSchool KidzLit helps motivate kids (grades K-8) to learn by showing them that reading isn't just something they do in school, but something that has real value in every part of their lives.

The AfterSchool KidzScience program is made up of hands-on cooperative science activities that not only engage children and teach them how to investigate the way scientists do but also align with the National Science Education Standards.

Math: AfterSchool Kidzmath

AfterSchool KidzMath is an engaging program designed to provide opportunities for children in grades K-6 to use mathematics in settings outside of the classroom. The games and activities help children learn key math skills while having fun. To meet the unique needs of afterschool programs, the activities are designed for both large and small groups, require few materials, and can be used in structured or unstructured settings.

SPARK PE Program

The most researched and field-tested PE program in the world. The Y uses over 450 pages of reference and resource chapters, cooperative, cultural and aerobic games, dances from around the world, and fun, skill developing sport activities. The SPARK program also uses fun activities such as jump rope, parachute play, jogging games, fitness circuits, and bean bag activities.

Food and Fun

A nutrition and physical activity curriculum designed to help children develop healthy habits during out-of-school time. The curriculum is designed to incorporate lessons and activities about healthy eating and physical activity into regular afterschool program schedules. Food & Fun includes 11 teaching units that encourage healthy behaviors through active play, literacy and math skills development, creative learning, and hands-on snack time activities.

Food & Fun programs are encouraged to work towards achieving the Environmental Standards for Nutrition and Physical Activity.
