A safe, loving, and fun after school program
Aventuras After School is our Spanish enrichment program for children in Kindergarten up to 5th grade. Children are welcomed into a warm, safe and loving environment where they continue (or begin) to learn Spanish through hands-on activities and loads of fun in a full immersion environment.
Our program is open to children of all levels, from beginner to fully bilingual. The beauty of an immersion program is that children learn at their own pace. Our teachers will challenge each child at his/her unique ability level.
The program runs Monday – Friday from school dismissal to 6:00pm. Although children from all elementary schools and homeschooled students are invited to attend, we are pleased to provide complimentary bus transportation from several local elementary schools (Ashburton, Farmland, Garrett Park, Kensington Parkwood, Luxmanor and Wyngate).
After School is closed for all holidays, snow days and winter break. Check out our 2021-2022 Aventuras Calendar of Events for more information!
As soon as children arrive, they head directly to our playgrounds for some much-needed fresh air, exercise and time with friends.
Following outdoor play, children enter their large, light-filled classroom to enjoy a healthy, nutritious snack.
Each week, children work towards Spanish learning goals through the use of “I can” statements, such as “I can say where I went” or “I can describe an object”.
Children will engage in a wide variety of kid-favorite activities including weekly sports and games (Capture the Flag, kickball, ping-pong and board games), art exploration, STEM projects (taking apart an old printer, testing our Rasberry Pi skills, working with Lego Robotics kits or trying a new trick with Makey Makey) and loads of opportunities for hands-on cooking projects!
After our activity, children are given free time to explore their interests. They can choose from a fun LEGO wall, building center, woodworking area, coding center, art and makerspace, open-ended play area, cozy reading corner, board games and a ping-pong table.
A designated table is available for children that want or need some quiet space to complete their homework. Counselors are on hand to answer questions or guide children through a challenge.
We use Brightwheel which is an app that lets our counselors send you updates and photos in real-time about your child’s day. You’ll also receive important information and more photos in our weekly newsletters every Friday.
We are open on all Montgomery County Public School half days and in-service days, and we provide an option to join us for camp over spring break. On full days, we typically venture out on a pre-planned field trip, and on half days, we often include an in-house field trip or special guest.
Children who attend After School full-time may join us on all half days and in-service days; families are only expected to cover the field trip fee. Part-time and drop-in families are welcome to join us on these special days for an added registration cost plus the field trip fee.
