Time Slots & What VVCC Offers

7 AM – 8 AM

TK – 5TH GRADE

Join us before school at VVCC in this relaxing environment. Hang with your friends, play a game, finish last minute homework, or bring out your creative side by  doing  an art project. 1st graders, kindergartners, and TK children are all walked to their classroom or line.

8 AM – 9:50 AM

TK/K LATE FRIENDS

A small group by design, this slot is for our TK/K Late Friends. Our children enjoy art or science projects, group time activities, movement activities, time spent in our outdoor art area, imagination play, and a snack before they are walked to their classrooms. Very social and engaging!

12:15 PM – 2:30 PM / 1:30 PM WEDNESDAY

TK/K EARLY FRIENDS

We welcome our Early Friends back from their TK/K classrooms. It’s a fun and active time with socialization, art and science projects, sensory activities, building challenges, and free and dramatic play. Snack time is 12:30 PM. We then have group time and gather our children who leave at dismissal.

2 PM

TK/K LATE FRIENDS

Late Friends arrive and join our Early Friends group. See information above.

2:30 PM – 6 PM

TK/K

All our TK/K friends head to the “small yard” to eat snack and play. Besides climbing, swinging, and ball activities, VVCC staff will provide structured PE-style activities to help our children with their growth, development, and skill-building. Activities include balancing, eye-hand coordination, and gross motor skills. TK/Ks come back in the building for more exploration, art, science, dramatic play, challenges, and group games. We are focusing on all aspects of development, especially the social-emotional needs of our young children.

1ST – 5TH GRADE

We are elated when our 1st-5th Graders join us after school!

3rd, 4th, and 5th graders bring their backpacks to the outdoor tables under the solar panels. They eat and socialize before getting started on their homework. When their assignments are complete, they play a variety of outdoor games and activities. They join us in the building for more pursuits, such as team building, art and sensory activities, and various challenges.

1st and 2nd graders grab their snack and water bottles and camp out by the play structure/solar panels on the field. They eat and socialize and then are free to play on the structure and black top area. Different outdoor activities will be presented daily. We encourage moving their bodies and getting their wiggles out! Next, they come into the building  where they have a dedicated homework and reading  time. After that, the real fun begins with building challenges, art, science, dramatic play, and sensory exploration.

OUTDOOR ART AREA

Each group is assigned time in our Outdoor Art Area. Activities change daily, but our constants are easel painting, a massive sand table, foosball, art projects, sensory, and  building activities.

4:30 PM PICKUP

Parents walk up the ramp and sign their child(ren) out on the Procare Computer. After signing out:

  • TK/K families may enter the building to pick up their child in their room.
  • 1st and 2nd grade families walk back outside and around the building to the other door, where they may enter to pick up their child.
  • 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade families will wait outside for a staff member to gather their child.

4:30 PM – 5:45 PM PICKUP / VVCC CLOSES AT 6 PM

Children continue with more fun projects and activities. 5:40 PM is pack-up time, and children are picked up in the “small yard” by parents/guardians from 5:45 – 6 PM.

If you have any questions regarding VVCC’s activities, please let us know.

We are happy to be a part of your family!
