For the first time ever, Friendship Circle of Brooklyn will be offering two after-school clubs for boys and girls, starting this coming Tuesday. Both sessions will foster an inclusive environment and will be open to BOTH children with special needs and mainstream children.
With the majority of special needs children attending school out of Crown Heights, it was becoming increasingly clear to FC Directors, Chani and Berel Majesky, that a new program that included all children in the community needed to be created. Every child deserves to walk down Kingston Ave and have friends they recognize that are their own age. Requests were also coming in from parents of mainstream children that wanted their kids to be raised with a heightened sensitivity and understanding nature; mothers that want their children to become active in Friendship Circle but were too young to participate in the programs offered till now.
Thus, after school inclusive clubs was born. The initial pilot program of Martial Arts for boys and Cooking Club for girls grades 1 – 3 will take place on five consecutive Tuesdays (Starting November 7, 2017) from 5.15 – 6.15 pm at the Jewish Children’s Museum. With a number of volunteers on hand to ensure the environment is one of inclusion and a great social experience for all in attendance.
Places are limited to ensure you register to reserve a spot for your child. Register at FCBrooklyn.com/Clubs.
