A great way for kids to unwind after a long day at school, Afternoon Fun! Kids live in an increasingly hectic and over scheduled world. Our Afternoon Fun program provides a friendly, safe and active time for kids to relax and have fun after school. The program meets at Barlow Street Community Center at 39 Barlow Street. We have a small, healthy snack when the kids arrive and then talk about what the kids would like to do that particular day. We have a playground, basketball and tennis courts, large field and baseball diamond. We also have plenty of indoor fun like arts and crafts, board games, Big Blue Blocks and a whole host of movies for those rainy days. Our program is VERY flexible and we take kids up to 24 hours in advance if we have space. Sign up for a day, a week, or everyday! What ever works best for your family.
Pickup is no later than 5:30 pm at Barlow Street School. Anyone picked up past 5:30 pm will be charged a $10 late charge for each 30 minutes (or portion there of) past 5:30pm.
Each day is limited in size - register early to avoid disappointment!
