For any parent, an after school program offers a safe and fun environment where your child can go after the school day if you are unable to pick them up after the school day. For many parents, this is a harsh reality of working a job (or two) to support their family, that sometimes you need some help taking care of, transporting, and entertaining your children. However, finding a reliable and enjoyable after school program for your child is much easier said than done, and finding an affordable and effective location is even harder. Any after school program has a difficult job of corralling, educating, and entertaining your kids, but not necessarily in such a structured space of school. It’s generally not the determined learning environment of school, but an after school program that can not only reinforce, but build on the lessons and experiences that school can provide is invaluable. Whether you need the help while you’re still at work, or would just like more variety and entertaining learning experiences in your child's life, an after school program like the programs we provide at Step By Step can offer a reliable solution.

At Step by Step in Hoboken, NJ, we are a proud team of experienced, educated, and compassionate teachers who want to provide smart and safe educational opportunities to your children, whether through one of our classroom programs, or an afterschool program. Currently, we are offering two different afterschool programs for different age groups; our Pre-K After School Program for 3-4 year olds, and our STEM Program, which is organized for older children up to age 13.

Interactive Curriculum Fundamentals

For an after school program, we want to provide a fun environment that supports school curriculum without enforcing it. The emphasis on our after school program is based on complimenting the curriculum of schoolwork, but with a lot more interaction and fun. After all, it’s an “after” school program! Utilizing songs, interactive charts, and a variety of enrichment programs, your child will continue to be exposed to the fundamentals they learn in the school day, but in a much more fun and interactive environment.

Creativity and Enrichment

With our afterschool programs, we want to help foster natural growth and development in your child, and to do that, we want to provide as many creative and enrichment opportunities as possible. It could be a visual and vocal activity, some culinary arts, or even some group art collaboration. We also offer a different enrichment program each day to diversify your child’s experiences, including things like cooking, theater, dance, math and logic, LEGO’s, Spanish, art, and a variety of sports. Our goal is to provide a fun environment for your child to engage with.
