After School & Early Morning Care
Our After School & Early Morning Care programs support families by providing a dynamic range of opportunities for students to pursue creative, intellectual, physical, and social interests outside of standard school hours. Through hands-on activities that encourage self-expression, children widen their social horizons by working with peers from various age groups while cultivating community.
Learn more about our programs below. Bank Street families can visit Bank Street Central for additional details.
