Children and Youth Services is a before and after school program for school age children that includes fun individual and group activities, free time, and meaningful learning experiences in a safe and creative atmosphere encouraging personal growth and social interaction.
The program is committed to providing quality care that facilitates the social, emotional, intellectual and physical growth of children, stressing the importance of individuality, diversity, unity, choice and autonomy.
All West Haven public elementary and intermediate school students are eligible to attend with bus transportation provided between sites.
Before and After School Child Care is provided at seven neighborhood schools: Carrigan, Mackrille, Molloy, Pagels, Savin Rock, Seth Haley, and Washington and is offered between 7am and school start, and school dismissal to 6pm during school days and certain school holidays.
This program is designed to accommodate the different stages of development by providing a variety of experiences to promote physical, emotional, social and intellectual growth, as well as independence that aids in the development of solid decision-making skills.
The Summer Program offers child care for elementary school children for 8 weeks during the summer school vacation -- providing 'peace of mind' to parents in need of child care, while offering children a great opportunity for fun, recreation and friendship. The program, located at Molloy School, 255 Meloy Road, is available between 7 am - 5:30 pm and is open to students who have completed Kindergarten through sixth grade during the previous school year.
Four days a week the children travel to state parks, museums and attractions. The other day, the children engage in a diverse range of age appropriate arts and craft projects, science experiments, and sports activities. The experienced staff is motivated and CPR/First Aid certified.
