“The intention is to provide a fun, engaging, nature-based experience for students to do on days they are not attending in-person classes while still supporting their remote learning,” said Kelley Lang, Director of Education and Community Programs.
The School Day Drop-in program offers students in grades 1 through 4 the option of attending a morning and/or an afternoon session on Mondays and/or Thursdays.
“Elementary students benefit from adult support to help them to get their schoolwork complete on days when they are not in the classroom. At this age, students may not be able to work independently for long periods of time, while parents are also working remotely. It’s a challenging situation all-around and Asbury Woods is ready to be a resource to families,” added Jennifer, Executive Director.
Children may attend the morning session and/or the afternoon session one or both days per week. Both sessions will provide time for completing assigned schoolwork as well as STEM enrichment activities and outdoor exploration.
