I am pleased to write this letter of recommendation for the after school program Imajine That. My child is 6 years old and attends the program 5 days a week. He finds his work to be both fun and educational. I personally find the program to be relevant and engaging. Their services help strengthen the students achievements and they offer a unique way of tutoring. Their style of interacting with the children is filled with warmth, welcoming and lots of fun, which makes the kids look forward to attending the afterschool program. I have no hesitation in enrolling my son into the program again next year; he has never been so excited to learn before.

Imajine That After School programs are an extended day supplemental educational program for school age children.  The goal for all Imajine That Extended Day programs is to support families needing after school care with a quality enrichment program that compliments the students’ academic day and enhances creativity utilizing state-of-the-art interactive tools, technology and curriculum. Imajine That partners with the community and school district to support the development of the whole student – mind, body and spirit.  Imajine That understands a child will succeed and work their hardest when he/she is motivated, engaged, felt heard and are in a safe nurturing environment.

From the first day at UP Academy, I have been very pleased with the quality of programming of Imajine That. The teachers are very professional and have worked extremely hard to build relationships with students, families, and school staff. Many parents have come to me with great compliments about the program and I whole-heartedly agree with them all. When I interact with the classroom staff and leadership, I always noticed a genuine sense of care and love for our students, their families and the community. This genuine care and love is very evident when you step into one of the Imajine That classrooms. Imajine That is very much the ideal model for what we would like all of our after school programs to be.
