Down Time gives homeschooling students the opportunity to have supervised unstructured time with friends and peers between our project based youth inspired academic classes. When you sign up for down time you get an hour and a half of supervised time. The first hour is between the morning and afternoon class from 11:30 to 12:30 with a half hour after the second class from 2pm to 2:30pm Turn a class into a half day or all day drop off experience with our Down Time (drop off) program. Parents drop off for their child for morning class at 9:45am. At 11:30am the students will be escorted by a dedicated Down Time Program Different Directions Staff member to their first Down Time hour from 11:30am to 12:30pm /lunch break. This hour is for eating lunch, playing outside in the playground (weather permitting) and socializing. At 12:30 the students will be brought to their afternoon class. At 2:30pm they will be picked up from class and taken to the playground. If the weather is inclement, Down Time will happen inside the classroom. We provide games, balls, jump ropes, chalk and other small yard equipment for the students to use. Like all experiences at Different Directions, Down Time is designed to fit your schedule. All of our classes are a la carte so you can pick and choose the times that work best for you. Many people like the idea of having at least one or two full days for their homeschool child. Signing up for the 10am class, the 11:30am Down Time, the 12:30 and the 2pm Down Time session gives students a full day with friends and great classes. Note: Due to insurance restrictions and Health Department regulations, we do not provide food for the children. We ask students who sign up for our all day program
