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. The program will be offered from 2:45-5:30pm on Monday-Thursday with the exception of school vacations, holidays and snow days. Participants can be picked up any time before the end of the program.
