Paradise Aftercare for Preschool - 5th grade
Hello Northside Families!
My name is Bettie Mack and I am the 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 the last few years.
The plan for Aftercare has three main ideas:
🌴 Transition From School:
- Homework is completed directly after snack and play break. The goal is to nurture and guide the children through a comfortable transition.
🌴 Transition To Aftercare:
- Children enjoy fun, themed, play time for laughter and learning! The goal is to allow children to just BE happy being children.
🌴 Transition To Home:
- The goal is to give parents more family time at home with homework already completed.
