This winter is trying to break all the records. One of the most frustrating ones is the number of snow days from school. Not only are snow days a loss of learning time, but they are also a significant financial burden for working parents. So why doesn’t the Club open on snow days so parents can still go to work?
One of the complaints that we used to get when we were renting the Al Tahoe school was that we never closed. An odd complaint we used to think, as the ethos of 'school is out, Club is open' is what we are all about. However, now we are in our own building, and working hard to maintain a clean, safe and well maintained environment, we understand the complaint.
Yesterday was a wonderful day at Club as we added over one hundred new members to our 2022/23 afterschool membership. Some were brand new to Club, others were familiar faces from the summer who all the staff were excited to see again.
Not just staff, but the right staff. At the time of writing this blog the Club needs 12 staff to absorb our waitlist of children and families needing after school care. For those families on the waitlist this is a stressful time. Work schedules have been disrupted, some are unable to work and as the Club is the major after school provider in our community, few have other options to fall back on.
