Build your own afterschool package at Beyond the Bell! Choose from our two day, three day, or five day per week packages - simply indicate during check-out which days of the week you need. The days of the week you pick for the two or three day option will be consistent for the entire month. Register for the Fall Semester Package or our NEW full School Year packages to save!
The program runs from 3:40-6:00pm on Monday through Friday with the exception of school vacations, holidays, professional development days, and snow days. Beyond the Bell is the school year equivalent of our tremendously popular Explorers Summer Camp and is run in the same format including indoor and outdoor sports, group games, arts and crafts, and even entertainers.
Benefits of an afterschool program are widespread. Quality afterschool programs provide a safe, nurturing place with supervision for school age children and the opportunity to reinforce learning from school, teach social skills, and encourage good citizenship. Through the activities that we offer, we hope to help your children develop some life-long leisure skills, as well as an understanding about the importance of having recreational interests.
Participants can be picked up any time before 6 o’clock.

Further Information: 2/8 is Valentine's Day Parents Night Out! This special event is held at the Canton Community Center in the Parks and Recreation Room at 5-9pm. It is held just like our summer camps and Beyond the Bell activities, with the extended time so parents can have a night out to themselves. We will be holding Beyond the Bell at this location for the convenience of the parents that are signing up for this special event; they will not have to pick their child up from Cherry Brook School and bring them to the Community Center. This evening will be packed full of special occasion events and crafts.
