At The Learning Lamp, we believe children should have an engaging and happy experience during after school hours. Quality teachers and curriculum are key to creating a positive environment. Our child care staff chose a career in child care or education because they enjoy working with children. They typically hold 2- or 4-year degrees in child development or education, or are studying to be teachers. That translates into a better atmosphere for kids. One major difference in our after school programs is a daily structured homework help session supervised by certified teachers. We also offer planned activities that appeal to children with varied interests. In addition, our programs include a healthy snack, arts and crafts and a physical activity component based on the acclaimed Sports, Play and Active Recreation for Kids (SPARK) curriculum. Supported by Highmark, this curriculum features games and sports designed to encourage children of all abilities to participate. The Learning Lamp currently runs programs at Cambria Elementary, Cambria Heights Elementary, Eagle View Elementary School, Ferndale Elementary, Forest Hills Elementary, Jackson Elementary, Maple Ridge Elementary, North Star Elementary, Richland Elementary, St. Benedict School (After School Program only), Westmont Hilltop Elementary, and Windber Area Elementary.
