The Afterschool Programs operated by Chimes Israel are complementary frameworks to the regular school hours, that provide recreational and social activities as well as therapies in the afternoons. This service is intended for children with varying levels of intellectual and developmental disabilities, many with additional problems, such as physical disabilities, autism, behavior challenges, chronic illnesses etc.
Chimes Israel employs a staff of counselors, nurses, therapists and other professionals, all experts in the care of children with special needs. Enrichment classes and social activities are available in such areas as music therapy, arts, movement therapy, animal care, etc. as well as challenging activities in sports, photography, cooking, yoga and more.
The goals of the program are to address the recreational, social and enrichment needs of children and youth with special needs after regular school hours as well as respite for families’ daily care of their child by extending their school day in a supportive and supervised setting.
