The Staff and Board of Directors
The Orleans After School Program(Orleans ASAP Inc.) was established to offer working families quality after school care for students attending school in Orleans in Kindergarten through age 14. Our 501(c)(3) Non Profit status states clearly that a minimum of 85% of our enrolled students must be the children of gainfully employed parents or those currently seeking employment.
The goal of the Orleans After School Program is to provide a safe, nurturing, creative and fun environment for children of working parents afterschool. We believe in offering a variety of activities to respond to varying ages and developmental levels, in order to correlate to the needs of our students. Activities children may participate in may include:
Arts and Crafts Projects
Drama and Music
We encourage children to work together, make new friendships and make appropriate choices.
Teachers are always available to help provide children with the skills needed to deal with others and solve problems in a positive and appropriate manner.
Enrolling Your Child
Before enrolling your child please feel free to visit our program to ask questions and meet the staff that will be working with your child. When enrolling your child in the program, you must fill out the pre-registration form (located on the FORMS page) and return it to the OASAP office.
