After School Care
The After School Care (ASC) program serves Houston-area children in Kindergarten through eighth (8th) grade and runs during the school year from late August to May/June, including some HISD in-service days and holidays.
ASC provides your child with fun and interesting activities. Additionally, Monday through Thursday, students have the opportunity to attend one of two staffed homework rooms where one on one help is available for students to complete homework assignments and to receive help if needed. Our staff works with students to offer educational support and help children use time productively to succeed.
Physical fitness and recreation opportunities include gym sport activities and games with the famous Coach Jones from West University Elementary, field sports, tennis, yoga, ballet, tae kwon do, and playground. These physical activities are great ways for your child to get exercise and release energy, develop motor skills and coordination, and have fun playing games with friends during after school hours.
Children have opportunities to participate in art projects, cooking/nutrition class, French class, and build with a variety of materials, play chess and other skill-oriented card and board games, and develop computer skills. Students experience interesting and fun field trips to places like the rodeo, rock climbing, indoor swimming, bowling, museums, Sky Zone, Schlitterbahn Water Park, ice skating, and more.
In addition to all these ASC activities, students may also enroll in classes with programs at the church in athletics, music, voice, etc. (See Youth Sports & Recreation and Bridges Academy.)

After School Care Counselors
Our counselors are chosen based on their enthusiasm and dedication to children. All counselors hired have previous experience working with children. Because we are a licensed program, counselors must be at least 18 years of age and a high school graduate. Furthermore, we background check and fingerprint each candidate prior to hiring. Most of our counselors attend college and many are pursuing degrees in early childhood education, elementary education, special education, child psychology and other related fields. Each counselor completes at least 24 hours of pre-service training and is required to earn 24 training hours throughout the school year. Each counselor has current CPR and First Aid training, which is renewed every 2 years.
