Extended Programs

LERNEN NACH DER SCHULE EXTENDE 拓展项目

GIS offers high quality Extended Care Program for students who need care after school lets out, during day-off camps, and summertime.

All programs focus on independence, consistency, and socialization. Our goal is to provide a safe, positive, and fun atmosphere for all children attending GIS. This is done daily by providing homework time, hands-on special projects, free play, and outside or gym time.
We follow all GIS school rules and policies listed in the Parent Handbook. We are licensed through the Oregon Child Care Division and follow all state health and safety guidelines.
