After School Program – Aftercare
Join our After School Program in STEAM City!
We have inspired thousands of students throughout South Florida for over 12 years! Our passionate team provides in-school field trips, after school enrichment programs, camps, clubs and more. After over a decade of working with schools to provide hands-on STEAM programs, we are so proud to open our first Broward Learning Center! Over the past 2 years, we have been fine-tuning plans for an after school program that promotes healthy minds & bodies. We have tested different methods of blending multiple subjects together with a focus on making learning engaging & fun. Our after school students receive the ULTIMATE hands-on experience with experiments, engineering, coding, live animal encounters, field trips, web design and fun writing projects (Yes! We’ve cracked to code to making writing FUN!) During those few precious hours after school, your child is inspired to create, design, construct, innovate, teach, write, perform, read and learn with a high-energy and passionate staff.

Frequently Ask Questions
Yes! Our aftercare students enjoy healthy snacks every day after school, and they often help prepare their own food. Sugary gummies, candy, cookies and other junk food are not part of the aftercare meal plan. We promote healthy choices and meal prep. Fresh fruits, vegetables and grains are a staple in our recipes! Students are encouraged to use what they learn about food after school to help prepare family snacks at home.

We offer our aftercare program to 25 students. Aftercare students work on solo and team projects. With a classroom size group, we are able to provide many resources, including: time with laptops/ipads, robots, circuits, chemistry supplies, and more!
Each child must be signed out by an adult who is pre-approved by a parent or guardian. To avoid a congested parking lot, drive behind the shopping plaza. In-between Joann Fabrics and 9 Round, there is a second lot with very little traffic and a sidewalk entrance that takes you safety to our door.
Our after school program ends at 6:00 p.m. We understand that sometimes there are emergencies or hold ups at work. For your convenience, do NOT charge a late fee for pick up after 6:00 p.m. We’d rather you not stress and rush through traffic to avoid a late fee. The latest pick up time for students is 6:45 p.m. If pickup is made continuously after 6:45 p.m., it may result in a suspension from the program.
We have 25 spots available in our after school program. Contact us TODAY if you are interested in enrolling your child for the 2018-2019 school year.
