After School

All after school programs are for ages 5 through 12, and will run for a minimum of 2 hours.

STEM - Mondays

Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics with Kimarie Anderson, Special Ed Teacher and Behavioral Technician for over 15 years.

Karate - Tuesdays

Drop off your CPT child for a 2-hour Karate Social Skills Group session with a CPT tech. Instructor Mike Purcell has been teaching special education for 7 years and martial arts for 18 years. He owns the Yi’s karate in West Berlin, New Jersey.

Music - Wednesdays

Connect Plus Therapy will focus on various aspects of social learning through the magic of music.

Music has a unique ability to bridge language barriers across the world and language and social deficits are no exception. Music Therapy has been used for decades to alleviate stress and anxiety, relieve verbal deficits, create bonds across cultures and bridge social barriers. Our kiddos will have the opportunity to learn about instruments, have opportunities to get involved in making music, express dance and learn gross and fine motor skills, increase temporal awareness through rhythm exercises, self management techniques and most importantly learn to use music as an outlet to express emotions and connect with peers socially. Music has no boundaries, and we hope our kiddos will learn that they don’t either!

Dance - Thursdays

Dance uses movement to enhance emotions, behaviors, and motor skills. Plus, it's a great way to get your kids to exercise in a fun way.

Game Day - Fridays

We'll use games to help your child learn planning skills, how to manage disappointment, improve hand-eye coordination, motor coordination, language development, and math skills. Come play games with us on Fridays!
