Homework Room Policy

​Monday through Thursdays, at approximately 3:45pm, Children are given the opportunity to work on their home work at St. Andrews Afterschool Program. We do not provide homework time on Fridays. ​They may work on homework up to 45 mins, depending on grade level and individual needs. Children working on homework are provided with a quiet space and materials available to complete most assignments individually. Staff are available to assist, encourage and check each child’s homework is completed without giving away answers. Therefore, when a child does not understand a portion of homework, and staff feel they have provided several ways to solve the problem, we will allow the child to put away the assignment to be completed at home. Please continue to check your child’s homework for completion and to ensure it is ready for school the next day. We do not offer individual tutoring. We will try our best to help each student. If we have trouble with the homework assignment, or if a homework assignment was not completed, we will try to let the parent know.
