Safekey is a before- and after-school recreational enrichment program held at all Henderson elementary schools. It features a variety of crafts, games and special activities as an alternative for kids while their parents work. In addition to providing activities designed to help children grow socially, emotionally and physically, Safekey also offers time for homework. It is for children in kindergarten through fifth grade.
Teen Scene is an after-school program for teens in grades six through eight. It is designed to provide a safe, supervised environment for teens while their parents work. Structured with teens’ interests in mind, the program includes arts and crafts, sports, field trips, homework assistance, special events, and activities that promote confidence and self-esteem.
Both programs follow the Clark County School District’s 9-month calendar. Discounts are available when enrolling more than one child from the same family in either program.
