Greater Providence Academic Enrichment Program provides a safe, nurturing, caring, and fun-filled environment that will enhance the child’s social, emotional, mental, and mental skills, allowing them to learn and grow.    We will serve students in grades K-7th grades. Our hours of operation are 2:30-6:30 PM, Monday – Friday and 7:00 AM – 6:30 PM, teacher workdays, winter and spring breaks.  
 
Children are served a nutritious snack each day upon arrival and time is set aside for children to talk and socialize with one another. Our programs’ focus is to assist each child with homework and provide tutorial assistance as needed. Interest centers (Math, Blocks, Science, Writing, Social Studies, Reading, Chess, Culinary, Arts & Crafts) are provided Monday-Thursday and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) are incorporated every Friday.  Field trips are scheduled during teacher workdays, winter and spring breaks.  Devotion is set aside every Wednesday.  Volunteers are on hand to assist children with reading and comprehension skills and techniques.
