Founded in 1985, the Trumansburg After School Program, Inc. is designed to meet family child care needs. Children who attend the Trumansburg Central School in grades K through 6 may enroll in TASP. The school provides the program with space and in-kind services (school rooms and playground, fields and gym). We operate according to the New York State School-Age Child Care regulations, Section 414.
Our program is designed to be flexible and to respond to the children’s needs and interests. A variety of activities are offered with a view to introducing children to new skills and hobbies. Enrichment opportunities are often presented by specialists and have included ‘one time’ shows and skill building workshops like gingerbread making, jewelry making and cartooning.
We take field trips, which are both educational and recreational. We believe that an after school program should be less structured than the school day, while still providing educational experiences. We embrace the concept that TASP is our children’s neighborhood. Youth should be involved in their community with walking field trips and organized community service.
