Our mission

Adventures in Learning is an after-school educational and enrichment program dedicated to improving the lives of Long Island children in need of after-school care and instruction. Housed in the Hagedorn Community Center at the Manhasset/Great Neck EOC, Adventures provides a warm and caring environment where children develop homework skills while benefiting from computer instruction, literary and math programs, and cultural activities.

Focus Programs

Our math specialist addresses the increasing needs of math instruction for our entire student body.  Ensuring the development of mathematics competence during the primary grades is essential to later learning success. 

Coming Soon!

The purpose of this program is to address the needs of our English Language Learners (ELL) by providing an English as a New Language (ENL) program within the Adventures in Learning after school program.

The Early Childhood Reading Program administered by three reading specialists, is modeled on professional tutoring programs shown to be highly effective for improving reading outcomes.
