Latchkey Mission Statement
The mission of the Hazel Park School District Latchkey Program is to provide a safe, affordable, nurturing environment for all Hazel Park children who are in need of out-of-school-time care.
Children thrive in an atmosphere of acceptance and support where they are allowed free exploration of their unique talents and interests. Our latchkey program strives to provide children with opportunities to explore and develop the skills necessary to lead happy and productive lives. Social, emotional, physical and cognitive activities are integrated into each day’s routine.
- To provide a safe, stimulating environment in which children can acquire and practice physical, social and cognitive skills.
- To provide an atmosphere which supports the development of a positive self-image in preparation for a happy and productive life among peers, colleagues and loved ones.
- To support each child’s growing independence at an individual level by allowing children to make choices and carry out tasks and activities with adult support and assistance when needed.
- To support all families through open communication and respect.
