We welcome you to check out our program, and look forward to continue serving the Garden Valley community!
Here at the expanded learning program, we offer a daily schedule that is sure to meet the needs of our students. The program accepts students from K-6th, and runs every day that school is in session. We offer a wide-range of student-friendly services that enhance the learning given during the regular school day. Students can expect to receive a free supper upon arriving to the program, before transitioning to supervise outside activities. Students are given time to work on homework as well as work on their literacy skills, in addition to participating in engaging enrichment activities, such as cooking clubs! Students will have the opportunity to learn about healthy eating habits, and the elements of STEAM, among many other things, that will work expand their knowledge about their surrounding environment!
