Great Explorations


 

Imagine learning math concepts by playing with Legos. Or improving reading and writing skills by publishing stories. These things and more are possible through Great Explorations, an after-school and summer enrichment program for area children.

Academic Enrichment
Academic enrichment occurs through exciting actives that expand rather than extend the school day, including: hands-on learning, homework help, tutoring, field trips & activities.

Enrichment Activities
Enrichment activities are designed to develop the whole child through a variety of explorer clubs and activities including: music, art, drama, outdoors, sports, health, recreation & interest clubs (books, boats, ect.)

Family Activities
Family activities are also planned, including regular family fun nights at the schools. Family activities include: wellness/fitness, technology, workshops & volunteer opportunities

Learn, Learn Learn through Play, Play, Play

School-age children have unique intellectual, emotional, physical and creative needs. They also need a break from school. Great Explorations meets those needs by nurturing a child’s education through creative, hands-on approaches.

Caring Staff Lead The Way

Highly qualified, experienced staff respond to each child’s needs in a caring, positive manner. Staff include: teachers, education professionals, high school students & community members.

School-Year Schedule

Great Explorations meets every full school day. After a healthy snack, every child will have a tutoring or homework help session each day. Children will also take part in self-selected enrichment & recreational activities.

Summer Schedule

The summer program meets daily Monday through Friday. Like the after-school program, activities include an academic component, enrichment and family activities.

Who Can Attend

Great Explorations is open to children in grades K-8 at Hancock Public Schools. Great Explorations Meets or exceeds State of Michigan Licensing requirements for childcare, ensuring a safe learning environment for your child.

Fees

Modest user fees will be charged to help operate the program. Discount and scholarships are available based on family income, numbers of siblings participating & program usage. Current rates are available by calling Gladys Dupuis, Site Coordinator at 906.483.3918.

Local Partnership

The Great Explorations program is a partnership of the public schools of Hancock & BHK Child Development Board. The project is funded through a 21st Century Community Learning Centers grant from the Michigan Department of Education and the Hancock Foundation.
