Homework Club
Per Hour

Fall Session August 21-December 14

Homework Time!

We value the importance of study time for students and expect students to be quiet and behave while doing their homework or some other quiet activity. 

A Safe Space!

Village Arts created Homework Club to continue to offer a destination for families where students feel safe, inspired, and have fun. 

Homework and Playtime!

Play time!

The program is also designed for kids to be kids: where they can play, create, be goofy or just hang out with a buddy once they have finished their work.

Village Arts is proud to be able to offer financial assistance through our form.
For additional financial assistance information, please contact us.  All information provided to Village Arts will remain confidential.

What you'll do in HWC

  • Students are picked up at Colfax School and then escorted across the street to the Village Arts space on the campus of the Faith Presbyterian Church.
  • Settling in for 15 minutes with snacks and gabbing with friends.
  • A full hour of homework time. Students are required to stay quiet during this time and complete their homework. Homework help is available from our two adults that work with the students. If students do not have homework or have finished early they can read, draw, or sit quietly with crafts.
  • Playtime after homework: games, Lego, art projects and more. We have a full room filled with supplies and games for kids to fully immerse themselves in various activities. All Village Arts programs take place at Village Arts space on the campus of Faith Presbyterian Church of Valley Village.
  • HWC as an Add-On with a class: if your child is enrolled in a class and you added HWC to it, their schedule will differ. They will only have time do homework before or after class. If time permits, they will engage in playtime.

What to Bring

  • Homework Packet from your child’s school.
  • Please bring at least two substantial snacks. (Remember that your children have had lunch at about 12 noon and will stay with us until 5:30pm.) They need brain power and energy! Although we provide snacks, your children might only prefer their own.

  • Write your child’s name on all their personal items (lunch box, sweaters, water bottle, etc)
