After School Program

SHED for K - Grade 8

SHED is our Reggio Emilia inspired after-school care program giving children in kindergarten through eighth grade a safe place to have fun with kids from the entire community.

Think of SHED as a second neighborhood for your child. Our unique campus gives your child both indoor and outdoor environments to explore with their SHED friends under the supervision of our experienced staff.

Our Reggio Emilia-inspired educators provide stimulating enrichment opportunities to spark your child’s curiosity.

Children must pack their own afternoon snacks.

Child-Staff Ratios

Group size varies depending on the needs of the child and family. Our ratio for state licensing is 13-1, however, we strive to maintain a lower child-to-staff ratio.

SHED after-school staff reflects a diversity of training and experience in early childhood education and school-age childcare. SHED Children’s Campus provides staff development and training opportunities throughout the year.

SHED Building

The SHED building design features spaces that foster your child’s imagination and natural need to explore. Home-based rooms invite your child and family to develop relationships with our educators and children.

We allow your child to visit other classrooms to learn to reach out and expand his or her community and self.

Our backyard provides natural settings for playing sports, gardening, cross-country skiing in the snow, and exploring our open fields and wooded areas.
