Lagniappe is Lusher’s Lower School after-school program. It is comprised of a diverse range of hands-on, engaging instructional classes such as ballet, guitar, chess, math games, and homework lab. Nearly 70% of Lusher students participate in at least one of these child-centered classes. Lagniappe is staffed by Lusher faculty and students from Tulane’s work-study program. Additionally, the Tulane Reading Room is open daily after school at the Willow St. Campus.
This program is unlike traditional after-school programs in that all students have the option to select classes that interest them. Students are able to discover talents, hobbies, and interests that may currently be untapped.
The program has full-time after-care, from 3:45 to 6:00pm. Instructional classes are held (Monday-Thursday) during the first hour, 3:45 to 4:45, followed by free play from 4:45 to 6:00pm.
Morning Care at the Willow St. Campus is from 7:00 to 8:05am. There are part-time options available. Drop-ins may attend homework lab if the student is not enrolled in the program.
