Children in Classroom

OUR OFFERINGS

A multidisciplinary After-School experience that takes a wholesome approach to youth education

By joining the core strengths of a variety of after-school programs we provide students with a holistic exposure to the most important aspects of their formative years. With STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math) and overall wellness education, we engage their creativity and curiosity for learning.

 

Our program aims to create a healthier community while connecting students through exploratory projects and interactions, including an end-of-program presentation. View our collection of quality, well-vetted partners below!

Musical Ears aims to introduce kids to the joy of music! Through sonic discovery, they will learn fundamental musical concepts such as harmony, rhythm, ear training, and melody while being introduced to music culture and history. Our students will learn to appreciate music at an early age and enjoy its many benefits (artistic, educational, personal, and social) without the frustration of private music lessons. We learn in an interactive play-based group setting. 

 

Our mission is to cultivate musicianship, arts, and culture in our community starting with our kids.

 

This is not a series where students master a specific instrument. The program is a progressive series where the kids learn the introductory concepts, listen to music from around the world, and also have special guest talks from some of New York City's leading artists who are also passionate educators.

 

Directed by Latin Grammy Nominated artist and composer, Mr. Gabriel Chakarji and Afterschool Collective Founder Jessica Sims.

TUESDAYS

Does your little learner love to tinker and create new things, or are they the kind of learner who likes to break things apart to see what’s inside? If so, they’re going to love Snapology’s Foundational Engineering: Machines and Contraptions program! This program gives your student the tools they need to understand mechanical movement and the importance of simple machines. They will see these moving parts up-close as they follow instructions to build various machines and contraptions, then use the models to develop new design ideas, test out physics concepts, and even play games with their partners and classmates. Whether they are the creative-constructive type or prefer the inquisitive-deconstructive way of learning, this program is sure to spark their engineering interests!
