SHADES of Development believes that children learn and grow with every interaction they encounter during their waking hours of the day. Afterschool time is a time to enhance learing, promote relationship building, and exercise conflict resolution techniques in a relaxed, nuturing and fun environment. The SHADES Afterschool program bridges the school day and home life. SHADES further believes that it is essential to create and environment of mutual repsect where adults and children can share, laugh, and learn together by setting goals, communicating, developing trust and holding ourselves and each other accountable.
