Discovery AfterSchool Program
Our unique Discovery AfterSchool Programs offers a range of classes in the arts, sciences, and math for children in Grades 1- 5. The arts and sciences share the same core ideas of curiosity, exploration, and creativity. Our Program brings those things together in a safe space for children to build self-esteem and problem-solving skills. We also offer homework help on Mondays - Thursdays and special workshops on public school half days and in lieu of class once a semester with Wesleyan's Center for the Arts.
For middle school students in Grades 6-8, we offer the Wesleyan Bound College Experience class on Friday afternoons.
Our AfterSchool team is made up of our core education staff, professional instructors, and Wesleyan University students who serve as teaching assistants and homework tutors. We pride ourselves in being able to offer such a diverse group of role models with a wide range of backgrounds and expertise to the children in the program.
The Program is flexible for busy schedules. You can send your children for five days a week or for one specific class of interest. You can sign up your children for homework time where we have college student tutors available to get your child started with their homework for the day. We receive children early on Middletown Public School early dismissal days and work with Wesleyan staff and students to provide additional hands-on activities during that time when possible. Our partnership with the public schools allows students to be bused directly here from school so parents are only responsible for picking up their children on time.
Financial assistance is available for those who qualify and we work with individual families based on their needs.
Please call the Green Street front desk to set up your registration appointment or you can fill out the registration forms here and bring them into our office. Registration is on a first come, first serve basis and a non-refundable deposit of $25 per child is required at the time of your registration appointment to reserve your child’s space.
