Step By Step offers an Aftercare Elementary School Care program that operates from the first day of school until the last day of the school year according to the Escambia County School Calendar. Our aftercare staff will pick up students from three local elementary schools, Jim Allen, Pine Meadow and Lipscomb, and transport the students to our facility. Parents may also have arrangements made with some schools to have their student transported by the school to our facility. Please check with your school to see if this option is available.
Our Aftercare program is staffed with Christian men and women who have years of experience working with elementary children. It is our goal to help your child as needed and encourage your child to get their homework completed so that you may have more quality time in the evenings with your family. Also, our goal is to work together with parents to help students develop appropriate behaviors. Our staff uses devotional exercises, games, team challenges and unity as the basis for character training in Biblical contexts. In the fall, our aftercare children work on a Christmas musical which includes singing, dancing, and acting, and we present the musical in December. In the spring, our aftercare children work on learning Bible Drill skills (memorizing verses, finding Books of the Bible quickly, and knowing where important passages are located in the Bible) and presenting a Bible Drill Competition/Talent Show at the end of the school year. We love to use the creative arts to teach moral lessons and spread the message of Jesus! When time allows, staff will also prepare crafts, celebrate birthdays and allow free play in centers.
