After school care is available for all students in our Toddler Community, Children’s Houses and Primary programmes.
At the two Tervuren locations (Rotselaerlaan and ‘Savoorke’), the Wezembeek-Oppem location and in Woluwe (‘Hof Kleinenberg’) after school care is provided on-site until 18.00 each school day.
The after school programme for Sterrebeek is provided at the Wezembeek-Oppem campus. Students from Sterrebeek are brought over by our school bus to the Wezembeek-Oppem centre, which is just a 1.5 km journey.
The Secondary students often stay longer too. Either completing their homework, performing some research, having a chat with teachers and peers or preparing for their practical events ahead. The environment is theirs when used constructively and due to their age and maturity they perform these activities independently.
Trained adults, who sometimes also fulfill other positions within one of the centers, staff the After School Hour Programmes (ASH). Depending upon the age and capacities of the children present, a playful constructive programme is put together. This can vary from gross motor activities, such as football, basketball, diabolos, or devil-sticks, a multitude of art activities, construction activities either inside or outside, board games, music appreciation or sometimes just quietly reading a nice story together.
Whichever activity is chosen during this time of the day, the most important aim of the afternoon is to continue the approach that was done earlier in the day, to develop and maintain an outstanding feeling of self worth. ”I’m proud and happy to be myself!” should be the message that goes home by the end of yet another fulfilling day at school.
