The Chesterbrook Learning Center is an amazing place for children and teens to learn and grow. At night on Tuesdays, there is a group called Prism for girls 5th grade and up, and Teen Center for 7th grade and up. Our director Max is very nice, funny, and responsible. There is one room for games & crafts and another room for homework and relaxing. All of the students in the center are learning how to be respectful by playing interactive games with each other.
Now, a little bit about my experience at Chesterbrook. I have been at the center for one year. During this time I made many friends. Also, I have learned to be less shy by interacting with nice, supportive people. As soon as I came to the center I felt very welcomed. At the center, we can do arts and crafts and fun projects. I feel like I can ask for help with my homework and my grades have improved in school. We also have amazing Bentley students that work with us on both homework and crafts. Another thing I love about the center is the freedom we get. For example, we get to choose what we want to do after we finish our homework.
One of my favorite memories is the holiday party. We had cookies, chips, juice, and presents. It was super fun I got a magnet making kit. I come to the center to do my homework and hang with my friends. The center is very fun – we also eat snacks that are yummy and we also go outside to the park or the basketball court. I wouldn’t do these activities if the center was not here!
