Please note: At this time the WES after School Program is full; we have a waitlist.
The After School Program (ASP) at WES serves children from the Woodstock Elementary School. We provide childcare for children in grades Pre-K through 6th grade. The program runs from 2:50-5:30 everyday school is in session.
The goal of the ASP is to provide a safe, happy, warm environment where the children can enjoy a healthy snack and have both structured and free-play time in and outdoors. The rules and tone of the program are consistent with the WES classroom and follow the principles of the Responsible Classroom. The Program Director and all program employees are provided with the book, “The Power of Our Word” written to guide language appropriate for school-aged children.
The program meets in the After School Program classroom, which is located on the first floor of the Woodstock Elementary School. When entering the school from the main entrance we are located down to the right at the end of the hallway. Weekly we go offsite for walks to the Norman Williams Public Library, Vail Field, Faulkner Park, Mt. Peg, the Village Green, AtrisTree, etc. The participation fee is $16/day or $80 for the week. Payments must be paid in advance, prior to the start of each new month. There is a late fee of $1.00 per minute after 5:30 PM.
The Registration, Participation/Permission, Expectations Agreement and Medical forms must all be completed prior to participation in the program.
