After School Program is Now A Full Day Program
To accommodate working families with children who are learning remotely, weʻve adjusted our program from an after-school option to an all-day option. The new 7:30AM – 6PM time frame supports the schedule of the average working parent. Parents can choose to enroll their child for the full day or ½ a day. The ½ day option provides parents the opportunity to remain home partially with their child before or after work.
To follow proper social distancing guidelines, we reduced the number of keiki we served at one time from 25 to 10 keiki. Our facility space is reconfigured with individual study spaces for virtual learning. Using our 15-passenger van, we transport students to their schools to pick up Grab and Go lunches. When lunch and virtual schooling are done, we transport students to the garden at Pu‘uokapolei to water plants, plant more plants and clear out invasives and debris. After our work at Pu‘uokapolei, we returned to our center for hands-on lessons in lauhala weaving, cordage, lei making, kāpala, kapa, and more. We serve keiki ages 5 – 14 and operate Monday – Thursday.
