The Best Child Care Choice for Working Parents
We have 7 child care facilities in Brentwood, CA 94513

Activities

Homework

Our homework center is open each afternoon and is monitored by the site director. Our goal is to offer assistance to children whether it is to help with memorizing math facts or guiding children to the correct resource to locate the needed information. A quiet place is provided for study and reading. We teach and reinforce good study habits.

Computer Center

The computers are loaded with software to enrich and enhance their cognitive skills. We encourage all the children to use the computers during their after school time with us. The children have online accessibility to the web with teacher monitoring when doing homework or researching a topic. There is no excuse for not finding the information they need for their reports.

Arts & Crafts

The teachers & staff create weekly themes and the activities for arts & crafts that relate to these themes. This is a very popular center in the afternoon. We give the children ideas and let them expand and create. Each child's project is unique and different depending on their ideas. We believe in fostering creativity and allowing the child to decide what the outcome of their project should be. Our teachers use the curriculum "Arts Attack" as part of our arts program. This is a DVD based teaching program that teaches a concept and then the children create their own masterpiece.

Music & Drama

Music/drama is part of the curriculum at Aim-High. We believe that music and acting are enriching and are a very important part of the development of children. It allows them to express their creativity using music & drama. Several times during the year programs are held to give opportunity for children to perform in front of an audience. School Programs are a dying art and we believe we can provide enrichment and an "opportunity to perform" for the children attending Aim-High.

Learning

At our center time, children choose an activity with three to four other children that have the same interest. During this time the children are strengthening their negotiating skills, interpersonal, creative and social skills. When children are polled, Learning Center time is always voted The Best!


Science Centers

These centers allow our children to experiment and experience new ideas and theories. They might choose carpentry or brick making to fill their time. Lots of learning happens when children are allowed to explore on their own. Children are naturally inquisitive and the science center is a great place for them to spend time touching, testing, and learning. Our animals allow children to experience life and understand the care and nurturing required for others.

Physical Education

Aim-High teachers use Sparks PE curriculum written especially for after school programs. This program stresses everyone participating and being active to increase their heart rate. Good sportsmanship is taught and winning is diminished. After being in school all day, playing PE is a great way to exercise and relax!

Breakfast

We serve breakfast each morning at 7:30am for those that arrive early at the centers. Our breakfast is a balanced meal that is served hot. Our mouth-watering snacks are a favorite with the children when they return from school. It is a great way to start the afternoon-- food, fun and activities.

Aim-High participates in the Child & Adult Food Program*, CACFP, sponsored by the government. We receive a small reimbursement for snacks and meals we serve. We go through strict audits and reviews by government specialists. Furthermore, we focus and teach healthy nutrition and our centers are "Junk Food Free Zones". We appreciate our parents supporting our philosophy.
