Afterschool Program

Our Afterschool Child Care Program provides a safe environment where kids can focus on developing confidence and character with trained counselors who are enthusiastic about youth development.  Our programs teach positive values for youth ages 5 to 12 years through role models, group activities and creative thought.  Children enjoy supervised activities such as sports, arts and crafts, and music rather than the company of the TV set or the local street corner.

The Afterschool Program runs throughout the school year and follows the schedule of the New Haven Public Schools for holidays and closings.
