KIDS ALLEY SATURDAY LIVE OFFERS NEW PROGRAMS
Saturday Live has moved and expanded. We now meet at 18 White Horse Pike Haddon Heights NJ 08035. The Saturday program now offers something for children three years old through adult. Our campus opens at 10:45 am with breakfast for everyone. We have time to celebrate together and then we break into small groups depending upon age. Mentoring groups available for teen girls, Girl Talk and for teen boys we have Man Up. Parents gather to study the Bible, encourage one another in parenting issues, and classes on life skills will be taught periodically. We dismiss at 12:45 and each child gets a lunch to take home. Come join the family and have fun.
YOU CAN HELP PROVIDE RELIEF!
Relief comes in any forms at Kids Alley. Relief eases the hunger in your stomach when you receive breakfast at Saturday Live. Relief is a warm, winter coat, hats and gloves. It also is a safe place to spend Saturday morning without the worry of hearing gun shots or being approached by a drug dealer. In August, relief is a back pack filled with school supplies.
One young boy upon receiving his new winter coat responded, "this is the best day ever." None of us can forget, ten year old Chad who said if he could ask Jesus anything, he would ask him to keep him safe and take away the fear.
We are in need of parnters to provide relief in the form of supplies for our Saturday Live Breakfast and our Saturday Live Store. The lists are provided here for you. If you have any further questions please contact the Kids Alley office at 856-228-2104 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Saturday Live at Kids Alley
In 1998, founder and director Vivian Tan developed a unique and interactive high-energy program for ages 3-12 on Saturday mornings for the children of Camden, New Jersey. Kids Alley hosts a creative blend of living arts presentations, educational and academic support, nutritional provisions and leadership development. Our mission is to embrace all children with God’s love and to empower them with His Word.
KIDS ALLEY LEARNING CENTER
The children are excited to be at our larger campus. There is room for quiet reading, individual classrooms for different age groups to work on their homework, a computer lab, and a large hall for indoor play when the weather keeps us inside.
We are excited this year to have a reading specialist volunteer with us a few days a week and another teacher from Florence NJ is volunteering to help us use Study Island, a web based NJ Core Curriculum program to its fullest.
The children will be attending Duffield Farms in Sewell on Friday, October 19 and the older boys will be taking a field trip to Miss Annie’s for pizza and play time with some of the male tutors from the learning center. These high school students are wonderful mentors and examples to the younger boys.
We will soon be starting In 2 Books, a web based literacy program for third through sixth grade students. We want to thank United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern NJ for this wonderful opportunity for the second year. Each student receives a book of their own and once read they have an approved on line mentor that they can discuss the book with. This program builds on their reading skills, reading comprehension, and their writing skills
