Welcome to the Beacon After School Program, held in J.V. Forrestal, Sargent and South Ave. Elementary schools. This program offers more than just child care; the program offers exposure to many different activities; an opportunity for your child to try something new or learn more about something they already enjoy. It is our goal to provide a safe and fun recreational experience to all participating children while providing opportunity for enrichment.
Each day, the children are dismissed from their classroom directly to the program, where they have about thirty minutes of free play followed by a snack. From about 4:00 to 4:50 is the first activity period followed by a second fifty-minute activity period. Scheduled activities are complete around 5:45. Parents are welcome to pick their child up at any time prior to 6:00.
Your child may attend any number of days per week. Activities will fill up fast; secure your space early if you want a particular activity. Please see the chart above for the schedule of daily activities. Follow this link for more information.
