Welcome - At the end of the school day, classroom teachers dismiss all students registered for our program directly to our staff, who greet students with a healthy snack and a smile. Students eat and socialize with friends, decompressing from the school day and gearing up for after-school.

Class Time - The sports, arts and enrichment classes that you select when enrolling your child in the program are taught by certified teachers, teaching artists and activity specialists. These classes usually take place from 3:30 - 4:40 PM and 4:40 - 5:50 PM.

Before and After Class  -  Students choose from a list of structured and open play activities, led by our Group Leaders.
