The After School Enrichment Program seeks to stimulate and facilitate the development of the whole child intellectually, physically and emotionally. Children grow in self-confidence and they gain independence with the skills they learn in group play and interaction. All of this is taught through the four core values of Caring, Honesty, Respect and Responsibility. Our goal is to provide an enriching program that keeps participants engaged throughout their time in our care.
The Cohoes Community Center provides quality, affordable child care for the families of Cohoes and its outlying communities. We are committed to providing a program that looks at each child as a unique individual and provides opportunities for each child to develop at their own pace. Our goals and curriculum encompasses the principles and guidelines that are outlined in the NAEYC (National Education of Young Children) and the Early Care and Learning Guidelines. Through our diverse, child centered program, we encourage and enhance all aspects of a child’s development: physical, emotional, social, communicative and cognitive.
Glens Falls Area Youth Center is an alternative to the dilemmas our young people face every day. It is the only teen drop-in facility of its kind in the area and is open throughout the year. Since the Center’s target population is disadvantaged youth, all programs are offered Free of charge! Any youngster between the ages of 10 and 19 are welcome to participate and place of residence and/or school attended is not a requirement. The Youth Center promotes an educational atmosphere requiring participants to be enrolled in school and are only open during hours when school is closed. We provide a safe, well-supervised environment where teenagers can enjoy the company of their peers and avoid feelings of intimidation. The Center supplies good role models and reinforces positive social behavior. Our recreation component draws teens to the facility.
