FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE (240) 654-0877
Today, Flex Academies announced that it will launch a first-of-its-kind, customized Afterschool Care and Enrichment Program.
The program, named “Beth Emeth Early Childhood Center (BEECC) Aftercare, Powered by Flex Academies,” will be offered at Congregation Beth Emeth (CBE) in Northern Virginia, and will be open to families throughout the area.
“CBE already has an outstanding preschool program with a strong reputation,” said Flex Academies Founder and President Joshua Chernikoff. “Our mission is to help BEECC extend its learning and childcare to families beyond dismissal time, should parents need this.”
Families will have the option of enrolling their children in either aftercare, which includes supervised play and healthy snacks, or enrichment, providing safe, fun learning activities for children, also including healthy afterschool snacks. Aftercare will be led by Flex Academies, while the enrichment hour will be led by Flex Academies providers in the D.C. area who specialize in arts, fitness and life skills, and are pre-screened by Flex Academies. An onsite Flex Academies director will oversee the daily programs.
Flex Academies is already a leader in safe, fun, afterschool enrichment, serving more than 75 schools in six states, but aftercare is new ground for the company.
“This is an exciting time,” said Chernikoff. “We are leaders in afterschool enrichment, but now, with afterschool care, we’re entering new territory. At Flex Academies, we love helping schools meet their challenges with programs that we customize for them.”
“We’re proud of our preschool at CBE, and happy to offer these unique afterschool programs to parents,” said CBE Executive Director Melissa Heifetz. “We look forward to our partnership with Flex Academies to make these programs the best they can be, for everyone in our community.”
“BEECC Aftercare, Powered by Flex Academies” will launch this Fall, at the start of the new school year.
