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

Nutrition is an important part of Adventures in Learning’s instruction.  The program was created to give children an opportunity to try, taste, choose, incorporate and eat healthier food choices at meals and snack times. 

The Film Workshop teaches children how to tell their own stories. The class focuses on writing and organizing one's own story.  A basic skill in  lighting techniques, camera theory and editing is introduced. The hope is to give the students creative ways to express their thoughts through story telling.

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.

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.

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.
