Prepare for the years ahead with enrollment at YMCA After School @ Pine Shadows! YMCA After School @ Pine Shadows is a center-based early care and education provider based in Houston. Centers like YMCA After School @ Pine Shadows educate the whole child in a school-like environment that can help prepare students for formal school down the road. Parents will find enriching activities and a curriculum to grow spatial, vocabulary and others skills at a school like YMCA After School @ Pine Shadows along with a community of peers of similar ages. Parents in the Houston area can by the same token find a great fit with the part-time schedule at YMCA After School @ Pine Shadows. Part-time gives children the opportunity to learn in a structured environment, out of the family home, with their peers and non-family adults, all the while parents can get things done. Part-time gives that flexibility, though, that families can crave when adjusting little ones to life outside the home, as parents don’t have to spend full days away from their young children. YMCA After School @ Pine Shadows teaches a play-based curriculum that values self-directed, interactive, intuitive learning by and for children. Students at play-based schools get the opportunity to participate in theme-based, hands-on activities with staff that facilitate and direct the discovery process. Through these hands-on activities, students develop social, cognitive and emotional skills built through the cooperation process with their peers. A play-based approach also can spark a love of learning that will be foundational for students throughout their early years of formal school.
