FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE (240) 654-0877
Flex Academies, the premier provider of before- and afterschool enrichment programs, announced that it has partnered with Greenvale Elementary in Scarsdale, New York, to offer parents a unique before-school care program. The program will allow Greenvale parents the option of either before-school care or before-school enrichment for their children.
Flex Academies Founder and CEO Joshua Chernikoff said that when the school district announced a later start time for Greenvale last year, it put many working parents in a bind.
“Greenvale’s parents needed a solution that would accommodate their schedules while offering a safe place for their kids,” said Chernikoff. “We worked with the school to create a program that is tailor-made for them. We enjoy coming up with solutions for the challenges that schools face.”
Flex Academies staff will be on site a full hour before the school would normally open, to provide the solution for parents who need to be on the job or on the road early in the morning.
The program is a first of its kind offering because it gives parents a choice of either before-school care or before-school enrichment. The before-school care consists of supervised play under the watchful eyes of Flex Academies’ staff.
The before-school enrichment program offers low-impact, fun, organized activities like yoga, keyboarding and singing, all staffed by Flex Academies certified enrichment providers. Activities like these give students a calm, fun way to start their school day.
“The program is not only a lifesaver for a parent facing an early morning commute, but it also translates to peace of mind, as your child is greeted at school by a responsible, caring adult in a safe and familiar place” said Chernikoff. “We’re working parents too, and we know when your child is safe and happy, that’s one less thing to worry about.”
Greenvale Elementary School will launch the new before-school program this coming Fall.
