Paradise Aftercare 2021-2022
Preschool - 6th grade
Hello Northside Families!
My name is Bettie Mack and I am the incoming Director for Paradise Camp and Aftercare. I taught at Northside for 5 years in the Preschool and previous to that I coordinated a mentor program with Pinellas County Schools. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my husband and two sons creating adventures and lasting memories.
I have over a decade of experience working with children and there is one thing that I know for sure……We can learn so much from children about resilience. Therefore, it is my honor and a privilege to have this responsibility coming out of the momentous world events of last year.
The plan for Aftercare has three main ideas
- Transition from school ---> to Aftercare ---> to home
The goal is to nurture and guide the children through a comfortable transition.
- Homework completed directly after snack and play break
The goal is to give parents that family time at home with homework already completed.
- Fun, themed, play time for laughter and learning
The goal is to allow children to just BE happy being children.
