The Daniel Center for Math and Science is a non-profit organization which provides year-round STEM education enhancement for at risk and economically disadvantaged children. Our program is housed within the framework of a licensed after school and full day summer/track out child care center.
Not only do high quality out-of-school opportunities yield academic benefits, but they also contribute greatly to the overall health and welfare of children. According to a 2010 report by Child Trends (a nonprofit, nonpartisan research center that studies children at all stages of development) , “adolescents in high-quality (out-of-school) programs were more likely to avoid risky behavior, to have better performance in school, and to have greater social competence, over and above the control variables, than those in no program.”
The mission of The Daniel Center is to provide enhanced math, science, and technology education opportunities that narrow the education gap for at-risk and disadvantaged students; additionally, to prepare and motivate these young people to pursue a post-high school education through proven tutoring methods. All this takes place within the framework of a safe, effective and FUN childcare program. This program is open to elementary and middle school students, ages 5-12.
