• Riverglades is proud to offer a School Board Operated Aftercare program. The students participate in a variety of activities throughout the afternoon. Some of the activities includes homework time, computers, game room, reading, cooking, science, math, outside time, and games are some of the weekly activities.

    The supervisors are teachers at Riverglades and work to provide a seamless transition from the school day to after care. They are able to plan and collaborate with school personnel to provide a quality after care program. Riverglades provides an after school program (2-6 pm) on all official school days, as well as camp days on select, non-school days (7:30 am - 6:00 pm).

    MISSION STATEMENT: To ensure that your child has a safe and enjoyable afternoon filled with learning, physical activities, and socialization. 

    OUR STAFF: Staff members are School Board background checked and will follow all of the District’s safety procedures. Riverglades Academy administrators/supervisors will be in direct contact with teachers at Riverglades Elementary to help achieve a seamless school to after-care experience.

    OUR APPROACH: Your child will be grouped by age and participate daily in academic reteach and enrichment activities specific to their grade level skills (i.e., strategy board games, arts and crafts, computer lab, music, creative writing, etc.) along with daily physical activity. Your child will also be provided with a snack and drink.
