Welcome to Clubhouse Stars!

About Us

Developing positive peer relationships and navigating social situations are lifelong skills that are very important in order to function appropriately in our daily lives. Social skills are essential on the playground and are the backbone of professional success. Our children receive formal education for reading and math, yet they are expected to “just know” how to interact with others. The reality is that people need to learn how to interact with others. Although technology has made our lives easier, it has also hindered our ability to interact with each other on a personal level. However, with the proper training and tools, children can learn important life skills that are necessary throughout life. Groups will provide social skills training for children with a range of concerns including, but not limited to: shyness/ social anxiety, impulsiveness, making and maintaining friendships, flexibility, sharing, and cooperating with others. At Clubhouse Stars, your child will learn in a manner that supports and encourages him/her in order to build his/her confidence and self-esteem.

How can I tell if my child needs Clubhouse Stars?

Does your child have difficulty communicating clearly with others, joining in group activities, sharing materials, saying kind words to others, waiting patiently, listening actively, accepting differences, resolving conflicts, reading verbal, emotional or physical cues, following directions or identifying their feelings? If so, then your child will benefit from the attention, small group setting and expertise that Clubhouse Stars provides.

What will my child learn?

At Clubhouse Stars, your child will learn and practice social skills through direct instruction, collaborative games, cooking, role playing, yoga, art, music and modeling in small groups. Based on an initial intake and ongoing parent communication, individual goals will be addressed in the group setting. Parent notes are sent home after each session with the lesson topic, explanations and reinforcement activities.
