Almost Home Plus

Director, Hilary Archigian, harchigian@shamesjcc.org
Grades K-6
September to June

As part of our Almost Home after school program, Almost Home Plus is our after school program for children who need support due to cognitive, emotional, and/or behavioral differences requiring more individualized attention to ensure a safe, fun, and successful experience.  If a child is observed to require a greater level of supervision once enrolled in Almost Home, whether or not there is a formal diagnosis, the Almost Home director will meet with parents to discuss transitioning the child to Almost Home Plus.  If you suspect your child may require additional support or supervision, we recommend scheduling an intake interview before registering. Almost Home Plus students participate in all Almost Home activities; additional fees apply.
