Before and After School Program in the News


July 27, 2012

Starting this fall, The Hopewell Valley YMCA and The Hopewell Valley After School Program will open this September as a single program. The Hopewell Valley After School Program (HVASP) and the Hopewell Valley YMCA will merge under the umbrella of the YMCA to offer the Before and After Care of Hopewell Valley program. HVASP Director Karen Sharp and YMCA Program Director, Daniel Williams will continue to lead the new program. Before and after care services will continue to be offered at all four local elementary schools and Timberlane middle school; however, the hours will be extended to 7am-6:30pm. Most adult staffers will remain to help build continuity as the program grows and strengthens. In addition to these services, the new program will also be offering programs that include age appropriate activities for the different levels of students attending, as well as enrichment programs such as homework help and even tutoring. The new organization will be under contract with the Hopewell Valley Regional School District (HVRSD), which will have oversight of the program. Also new is the development of a Parent Advisory Committee, made up of parents and school administrators who will meet quarterly to discuss the program. The program will continue to be flexible, offering childcare one to five days a week, as well as drop-in availability and extended hours. The new program will continue to offer the quality programming that parents have come to expect and count on for years.
