Mister John’s Music is expanding our After-School Program for the ’23-24 school year!
Alright, you want/need aftercare for your child but what exactly does an afternoon at MJM After-School entail? Great question!
First MJM staff will pick-up your child immediately after school (available at CCCS, Meredith, McCall, Nebinger, and Fanny Jackson Coppin) and escort them to our studio (unless you choose to bring your child to the studio yourself). There’s time for snacks (from home) and socialization while we wait for all of our kids to arrive. Then, children enrolled in the MJM After-School Program will participate in a variety of structured and self-guided activities. Each day of the week offers a choice between two music classes (Ex. Guitar & Percussion, Piano & Choir) – you’ll select one of the two music offerings per day of programming upon registration. For the remainder of the afternoon, your child will have the opportunity to participate in one of our non-musical activities (Visual Arts, Drama Games, Yoga, etc.). These additional enrichment classes may on occasion be outdoors – either on our outdoor stage, Cianfrani Park or Palumbo Park. Should your child wish to forgo the additional enrichment class on any given day, they may choose to participate in MJM Club, which consists of supervised reading, relaxing, and homework time.
