Before and After Care Program

For families attending the Village School, we offer a Before and After Care Program that is licensed by the State of Vermont and provides structured activities and supervised child care for our students in the time before or after school. Village School staff operate the program at the school, creating a familiar and nurturing environment for children before and/or after the regular school day. We also offer an Afterschool Enrichment Program (AEP)

The After School Enrichment Program (AEP) offers occasional additional programming to students wishing to pursue extracurricular activities. Some examples of previous programming enjoyed by our students include: healthy baking, creative writing, gaming, knitting, outdoor fun, felting, and more. Students must register for these programs in advance. All AEP programs will be announced on the weekly Before and After Care pre-registration forms as they become available.
