      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.
