Frequently Asked Questions for Creative Minds PC Families:
AlphaBEST Education has been providing before and after school programs since 2005. We currently serve approximately 30,000 students in 16 states. Family is important to us. We are a family-owned business and we take pride in the relationships we build with students, their parents, district staff, our staff, and the local communities that we become part of.
Unique to after school programs, AlphaBEST includes world-class enrichment sessions every day for every student, at no additional charge. We partner with some of the nation’s leading developers of high-quality enrichment curricula. Currently, our students enjoy FIRST Lego League Robotics, Coding, Maker Space Fridays, Visual Arts, Cartooning, Stop-motion Animation, Drama, Spanish, Mandarin, Sign Language, Cricket, Tennis, Basketball, Soccer, and more!
At AlphaBEST, we prioritize the relationships with our local schools and families. We began community by community, and we have grown one community at a time. Whether we’re serving a small district with 2 schools or a large district with 60 schools, we treat each one as its own local, small business. Our local Area Managers and Site Directors will be selected from the local community and trained to our high expectations. AlphaBEST establishes strong partnerships with local organizations in each of the communities we serve.
Homework time is a key part of our program. After a snack and some movement/exercise, students are separated into grade and age groups, each with a staff member, to work on homework for approximately 30 minutes. A quiet environment with appropriate materials is provided, and our staff rotate to assist students with their work. Those students who do not have homework will participate in a variety of Brain Games of their choice until the homework block is completed.
Each afternoon begins with a snack and recreation and socialization time. This informal time allows students to unwind and relax. Following an engaging and fun enrichment experience, students are free to choose activities at the end of the day, based on their level of energy and their own interests.
AlphaBEST provides and serves each child a daily snack that adheres to USDA guidelines and state regulations for snack service. Snack menus are prepared to offer variety and interest so that children’s needs for a well-balanced diet are supported through the snack program. Parents may send daily snacks with their children and also provide any allergy information.
AlphaBEST is a fully licensed program and will follow the staff-to-student ratios as prescribed by the District of Columbia.
