After School Recreation
The After School Recreation provided at Oakland Heights exists to supplement the ministry of our church in carrying out its God-ordained ministry. This is to be an instrument through which Christ can reach people with His gift to New Life and in which people can grow to Christian maturity.
Our program is based on the belief that children are individuals and have the capacity to learn at his/her own rate when provided with developmentally appropriate activities/experiences including but not exclusive to teaching of the scripture.
We believe that when children are provided with love and a safe, happy atmosphere he/she will grow and develop socially, intellectually, emotionally, physically, and spiritually with a good self image.
Given the age of the children in our care and the time of day when they may participate we believe that more class room settings would put the child(ren) in a stressed state of mind and therefore our program will be based more on learning experiences through play, both physically and mentally oriented.
We believe that we the center, need to serve the child as well as his/her family. Since each family unit is unique we feel that we, the center, need to meet the individual needs of each child.
