Review for Harriet Tubman Pto Aftercare Inc, West Orange, NJ, USA

Rating: 5 stars  


I had the pleasure of volunteering at Harriet Tubman Aftercare program, and I must their service is exceptional. They hosted the school’s 1st Annual Back to School cookout in September 2013, and it was a great success. With the help of donations from the community and parent support, the cookout was filled with food, games, and pertinent information about the program for the newcomers. The aftercare program is a gentle transition time from school to home. Children have the opportunity to read, finish homework, play board games and create artwork. Outside time and active games are also offered daily and the kids love it. The after school program curriculum is built around themes that are of interest to the children. Within each theme, there are opportunities for all children to explore and experience activities that are meaningful to them. The afternoon is a blend of child initiated and teacher initiated activities including outdoor play, afternoon snack, group time, homework and reading time. This program benefits the Central Ward community in so many ways and continues to get better each year.
