Afterschool Labs bridges the gap between school and home with inspiration, learning, and fun.
“There has been a noticeable, measurable improvement in our afterschool offerings since we’ve partnered with Appleton. Bringing Appleton in to fully manage our afterschool and summer programs has allowed Huntsville City Schools to be proud of the fact that we now offer a true extended learning program. All of the components of Appleton’s Afterschool Labs program – STEAM curriculum, day-to-day operations, marketing – have been the perfect fit for Huntsville City Schools.”
– Dr. Cathy Vasile, Director of Elementary Instruction, Huntsville City Schools
“The transition for the old extended day to the Afterschool Labs program has gone better than I could have imagined…It’s just been a great transition; the teachers are happy, the parents are happy, the kids are happy. The things that I am hearing from the administration are all good.”
– Joey Vaughn, Former Director of Child Nutrition, Huntsville City Schools
“All of the teachers took time to be caring, compassionate, and understanding with the children. I would tell parents to look into this fun, flexible, and affordable camp. The instructors are some of the best I have come across in terms of their ability to relate to and engage the kids. Appleton’s Summer Labs camps exceeded our expectations, and we will be back next year!”
