HSECP originated within the structure of Celebree Learning Centers, a for-profit early child care provider, as an external provider to students attending schools in the local community. Parents had the option to have their child transported for external child care. As a sister organization of Celebree Learning Centers, Hot Spots Extended Care Program Inc. (HSECP), was formed to support the voices of parents requesting in-school educational enrichment that eliminated transportation.
Hot Spots Extended Care Program Inc., a 501(c) 3, was founded in 2009 to address the societal demand for convenient and high-quality before and after school enrichment. There were limited school-housed, high quality programs available to the working parents of the school-age child.
HSECP responded to a fast-paced society’s need for convenience and proudly serves nearly 1,000 students within various communities throughout the state of Maryland. Our organization partners with public school districts, specifically elementary schools and local businesses, to provide educational enrichment in the school house. Parents have the luxury of traveling directly to their community school to drop off their child every morning and afternoon.
HSECP responded to the increasing educational expectations of competitive school districts. HSECP created a program rooted in relationships with students, parents and educational leaders. These collaborative insights form the foundation of the HSECP out-of-school time engagement. The HSECP curricular experience provides reinforcement of educators’ instruction and supports the high-demands of the state curriculum. Parents are also supported with the changing needs of homework through teacher-facilitated homework sessions.
Hot Spots Extended Care Program Inc. is committed to extending their footprint to serve the school-age community.
