At Grenville Baker, we are ready to help kids kick off the school year in a safe and productive way! This Monday the 14th, we opened our doors to 107 kids across our three off-site locations (while our renovations continue). To keep kids healthy, we modified and added safety protocols according to CDC guidelines to all our program spaces.
Just as important, knowing that hybrid and remote learning creates new challenges, all of our staff are focused on ensuring that kids stay on track to do well in school and realize their full potential. Each day after school, the kids enjoy a snack (prepared at home for safety), and then spend an hour (Power Hour) focused on homework. This routine teaches kids to prioritize their responsibilities and gives them a sense of consistency — which is dearly needed when every other aspect of life seems uncertain.
When the hard work is finished, we turn our attention to fun and games…so that kids can feel like kids! Even at a “social distance,” we know the kids appreciate the time they can spend with friends and staff at the Club.
