A Typical Day at Springboard
Daily Planning and Preparation
Upon arriving at Springboard students are met by their teachers with a warm greeting. After attendance is taken students gather in the Den for a snack and Circle Time. During Circle Time the daily schedule is discussed, rules and expectations are reviewed and connections with friends are made.
Teachers assess your child’s homework needs then work one-on-one checking for accuracy and comprehension. When homework is completed, teachers provide additional instruction in order to help your child stay ahead, excel and reach academic goals. Small group tutoring is always available as well.
Springboard teachers are in continuous communication with your child’s school teachers monitoring performance, upcoming academic schedules, tests and major assignments. We provide reports to parents with diagnostic results and academic progress. We believe communication between parent and teacher is crucial to a child’s success. Our on-line Parent Connect system allows you to contact your child’s Springboard teachers with any questions, concerns or feedback.
Springboard is successful because kids want to attend. Children need time to relax and have an opportunity to get to know the staff and one another. Each day, students spend a portion of their after-school day in the “Den.” The Den is a little different at each location, but typically includes the most popular age-appropriate games, giant bean-bag chairs, air hockey, Ping Pong, chess and more.
Professional instructors for our mind-expanding electives create a safe and educational setting for exploration, team work and fun! Whether students are playing Capture the Flag, preparing a hip-hop dance routine, learning musical improvisation techniques or building robots to navigate an obstacle course, your child will have fun and develop new skills.
