Our Out-of-School Time Programs are based around three principles we call the Three C's:
We use the Nurtured Heart Approach, which is designed to guide children in the most positive way possible. Our goal is for children to learn from their mistakes, to take ownership of their actions, and to develop their social-emotional and problem solving skills.
The Cambridge Community Center is not a homework center. Children are given the opportunity to work on their homework from 3:40-4:20. In most cases, we are able to provide one-on-one homework support during this time.
We are dedicated to enrolling not only children, but families. Group leaders update parents every week and help plan monthly Family Nights. The first Friday of every month is Family Night, where all of our families are invited to eat dinner and socialize with staff and other families. Past family nights have included decorating gingerbread houses, movie nights, and collage making!
