General Information

The Trinity Lutheran Church Afterschool Program provides safe, high-quality care for children in kindergarten through 6th grade in a warm and nurturing Christian environment. We encourage respect for ourselves and others, and provide opportunities in recreation, art, and many various areas of interest. The Program's purpose is recreational, with many opportunities for learning without the structure of a classroom environment. Children are given individual choices through the daily schedule, and we also encourage and provide daily quiet time for the purpose of doing homework.

The staff of the Program includes the Director, Head Teacher, and a teacher aide when needed. Staff arrives at the Program by 2:00pm. Feel free to call us at this time or leave a message any time if needed. Staff members are NYS mandated reporters of child abuse/neglect.

As a registered and licensed afterschool program, Trinity is required by the NYS Office of Children and Family Services to have a Board. The Church Council appoints a Director, hires the staff, and oversees the Program. The Church Council and school committee regularly meet to establish policies and procedures, oversee the Program budget and operation, and review issues as they arise.

Admission to the Program is on a first-come, first-served basis. Children may be enrolled full time or part time as per the contract agreement. Preference will be given to full-time applicants. When you sign up for a contracted day, you will be expected to complete the contracted time through the end of the school semester. The child's enrollment in the Program may be cancelled by the parent/guardian upon two weeks written notice to the Head Teacher.
