Programs & Curriculum

Innovation Learning

Innovate. Create. Educate.

Our curriculum has been designed to promote active participation while helping children to experience increased control of their own learning. Over decades as career educators, we have crafted the ideal framework that marries structured programming, research based and skill-building methods with adaptable, creative frameworks that allow children to become innovators. Our programs view Innovation as a “set of skills,” to be nurtured, taught and practiced. These skills include curiosity, collaboration, creativity and curiosity.

This “innovative mindset” approach to education has been proven to improve social, emotional, and academic outcomes.

We offer a flexible format, so schools and parents can make choices about what components of our program they want to use.

Before and After School

Our leadership team consists of educators who are also parents that understand skills associated with an “innovative mindset” have a very high correlation with improved academic outcomes. We believe that such skills should be taught and practiced in a fun and exciting way, and our approach is a balanced one, offering the District a variety of choices when it comes to teaching the skills associated with Innovation. Our full-service program marries traditional features of before and after school programs, such as a focus on child safety, program licensing, snack, and the inclusion of a play-based curriculum, with a 21st Century twist. STEM based enrichment activities such as robotics, coding, computer gaming and engineering are all included in our program at no extra charge, for those students who are already enrolled in our regular after school program.

On-Site and Online Enrichments

While we include several enrichment classes in a single price for those who attend our afterschool programs, Innovation Learning also has partnerships with some of the best community-based providers. We offer a “premium enrichment” program which is available to all students (regardless of whether they are enrolled in our regular before and after school program).

At the discretion of the school community we can bring in an additional laundry list of community-based enrichments such as band, orchestra, piano, drama, dance, golf instruction and a variety of others. Many of these enrichments can be offered onsite or online. Students can enroll in these classes based upon interest with some carrying an additional charge (for students who choose to participate in them). Learn More
