Ivy League Before & After School Sports & Recreation Program
The Ivy League Before and After School Program offers quality programming that focuses on fitness recreation and academic enrichment in a healthy, safe environment to all students in Kindergarten through 8th grade. We are committed to providing a fun-filled, rewarding program that supports the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual development of school-age children and their families to the fullest potential in order to improve their quality of life. We also offer Day Off Programming during school holidays. Check the Events page for more information.
Our program involves four main aspects, all included in your registration at no extra cost:
STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math)
Think. Inspire. Dream. Create.
We are excited to announce that we are now incorporating STEM education during our after school programming. What is STEM? STEM is an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math education. STEM curriculum is driven by problem-solving, discovery, exploratory learning, and requires students to actively engage a situation in order to find its solution.
Today’s students are tomorrow’s leaders. Occupations in STEM-related careers are some of the fastest growing and best paid of the 21st century, and they often have the greatest potential for job growth. Building a solid STEM foundation through a well-rounded curriculum is the best way to ensure that students are exposed to math, science, and technology in their early educational career.
Our first STEM project is using HUE animation where students will challenge their imaginations and produce their very own animated film! This program is designed to ignite and inspire creativity and imagination in kids of all ages.
Animation means children have to solve problems, make decisions and judgements, evaluate and improve their projects and review and reflect on their learning.
Stay tuned to get a glimpse into your child's imagination!

Arts & Crafts
Our students do a variety of arts and crafts as an outlet to be creative and have fun. Site directors and aids encourage each child to express their own imagination doing a variety of different types of crafts.
Sports and Recreation
One of our main Sports and fitness activities include basketball, dodgeball, duck and run, tag, skill building activities, baseball and many more. Sports encourage teamwork and fair play while teaching kids valuable lessons in cooperation and respect for others. The children develop more coordination and are building healthier habits. New games are brought into the program monthly.
The Ivy League offers students homework help and mentoring. We understand how homework is one of the keys of academic success. At most sites, our site directors will have a dedicated space and time for schoolwork.
