    Research shows that childhood play is linked to coping skills and creativity, so we encourage our students to play after school! Supervised Play meets in the Primary and Pre-Primary classrooms at Laurel which are conveniently located near our beautiful playgrounds and spacious Multipurpose Room.

    Students have an after-school snack each day. They spend most of their afternoons outside or may go to a classroom, where they can read, do crafts, or play quiet games. Age-appropriate activities are facilitated by staff, including homework time as needed.

    Please note: We have returned to our previous pricing structure based on the number of days your child will attend each week of the semester. Any additional days a child attends in the course of a week will be considered a “drop-in” and a drop-in fee will apply.

    • Drop-in fees are $35/day; parents should email tOhmart@LaurelSchool.org before the drop-in to ensure there is space for their child that day.

    INSTRUCTORS: Snapology of Cleveland

    Snapology’s mission is to provide children an opportunity to engage in “playful learning” activities that will stimulate their creativity and spark an interest in learning. 

    Research has shown that many of children’s best learning experiences come when they are engaged not simply in interacting with materials, but in designing, creating, and inventing with them. Our classes are based coupon several strategies that have been shown to maximize learning through the use of various activities and technologies in creative, playful, and “learningful” ways.

    This session of Snapology is "Snapology Wizards." Your child will be transported to the world of wizards in Snapology's Wizarding program, inspired by the Harry Potter™ film series!  In this LEGO program, students will explore their favorite aspects of the film series by exploring all that makes Hogwarts and learning magic so— well, magical! Students will create the castle they love, make maps to navigate it, be sorted into their house and more!

    Students will be supervised by After School at Laurel and receive a snack between the end of the school day and the beginning of their activity.

    COST: $125 
    INSTRUCTORS: Shannon Lukz and Chuck Allen

    Adventure Girls(AG) was started in 2012 by Mrs. Lukz and Mr. Allen as a way for Third, Fourth and Fifth Grade girls to build resilience through challenging games and activities, promote health and improve fitness through adventure-packed programming. Participants also have many opportunities to develop their leadership and communication skills through group problem-solving tasks.

    Research shows many benefits to being exposed to “stress episodes” in building resilience and trust. Adventure Girls not only fills that role but also provides many opportunities for delivering humor, which proves to “convey intelligence…and confidence.”
    Leadership and adventure skills are developed in our Adventure Girls setting. AG is an excellent way for adventurous third, fourth, and fifth graders to sharpen both adventure, survival, and leadership skills.

    This year, we are offering sessions for each grade level and plan to hold a 10 Year Adventure Girls Anniversary Celebration in the spring.

    SESSION DATES BY GRADE(S):
    Grades 4 & 5: February 8, 15, 22
