The TEK Center Goals

Explore
We hope to see students exploring healthy ideas, games, knowledge, social behavior, experiences and themselves. Your kids should be telling you about new things they learned or discovered.

Create
We hope to see students creating games, inventions, friendship, art, finished homework assignments, costumes, etc… Your kids should be showing and telling you about the new projects and creations they have made.

Grow
We hope to see students becoming more focused, self-motivated, excited, kind, confident and aware. Your kids should feel safe, heard, understood and be able to identify areas they are growing in and attempting to grow in!

Which Program do I Choose?

Looking for dedicated learning only? (We say dedicated because learning happens everywhere at TEK!)

(K-1st) drop your student off at the TEK Center from 3:15 to 4:15PM, or they can ride the bus and spend a little while in TEK Aftercare and then join TEK Jr. Each day is a different day. (Mon – Computer/Logic, Tue/Thur – Science, Wed – Electricity, Fri – Mechanical/Building) 

(2nd – 5th) Unfortunately we can’t guarantee how long your student will be able to participate. Student are always welcome to join TEK Scouts but teachers will evaluate their level of focus and willpower and when that runs out and they become a distraction to the class they will be apart of TEK Aftercare and can ask to rejoin at the next break time. 

 

Looking for Aftercare? (We like to think it's more than an just an extended care time but we'll let you decide)

You don’t have to join TEK Jr. or TEK Scouts to be apart of TEK Aftercare. Right now we only have pick-up from River Grove, Westridge, Lake Grove and Durham Elementary. If you are only apart of TEK Aftercare a 2 hour minimum is charged each visit. 

How Does Payment Work?

Kids are clocked in to the TEK Aftercare as soon as they arrive and when they leave. When a kid takes part in a TEK Jr class, or TEK Scouts, the time is recorded.

Hourly Payment

All of the time recorded will be shown in your account and payment will be deducted automatically every 2 weeks. You will be charged an hourly rate of $6.50 in TEK Aftercare and $15 in TEK Scouts/Jr. If you are only apart of TEK Aftercare a 2 hour minimum is charged each visit.

Monthly Package

If you plan on coming often a monthly package will be a better deal. Packages are bought at the start of the month, and auto renewed the next month. We have an Unlimited Aftercare Package($220) which gives you unlimited aftercare and decreases TEK Scouts to $8.50/hr OR Unlimited Everything Package($360) which gives you as much Aftercare and TEK Scout hours as your student can use.
