What Sets Us Apart
Our quality sets us apart from other programs. EAC infuses all curriculum activities with Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) concepts and objectives. Our curriculum is based on weekly themes. These themes might be changing seasons, holidays, turning points in history, higher education, learning about self-esteem, etc. Our weekly themes tie into daily themes, which are as follows:
- Math and Science Mondays: Monday curriculum encourages children to develop a passion for mathematics and science, and to pursue studying the aforementioned subjects in college.
- Make It Take It Tuesdays: Tuesday’s curriculum will focus on theme-related individual craft and art activities, as well as occasional cooking projects that students will complete to enjoy at home.
- Crafty Art Wednesdays: This curriculum encourages children to use their “right brains” for creative and fun arts & crafts activities.
- Groovy Games Thursdays: Activities on this day help build camaraderie and kinship among peers, and teach children the importance of working as a team.
- Sports/Born to Run Fridays: Curriculum produced by RunTex Foundation, this program provides our children with endurance training for a one mile run. In addition, to many opportunities for organized play.
After school programs provide a safe and structured environment for kids after school. They offer additional learning opportunities for kids beyond the classroom. EAC is an afterschool program I can trust with the care of my child, gives me peace of mind and allows me to work a full time schedule at my job.”
