School-Age / Afterschool For children ages 5–12

Working parents want peace of mind, knowing their child is in a safe, supportive, and cheerful afterschool program led by certified teachers.

Eligibility and Transportation

Our school-age/afterschool program is for students in kindergarten through grade 5 or 6.

Unlike our toddler and preschool programs, our school-age/afterschool program is only available to children in Braintree Public Schools.

The Kiddosland van makes afterschool stops at Monatiquot, Hollis, Flaherty, Highlands, Ross, and Morrison Elementary Schools and transports to Kiddosland. (Students from Liberty Elementary, East Middle, and South Middle must use alternative transportation.)

What to Expect

The main focus of our school-age/afterschool program is homework, yet our teachers never stray from the fun approach that instills a love for learning.

Teachers start the school year by establishing good work habits. Is the child consistently bringing their homework home? Do they understand the assignment? Next, the teachers offer comprehensive guidance and tutorials but do not correct homework to ensure the children’s elementary school teachers will have an accurate view of progress.

When homework is done, the children are free to read and complete their reading log. After that, we might offer additional worksheets for reading, writing, and math skills. Finally, children play outdoors or in our community room.

How We Communicate

At pickup time we ask parents to sign their child’s reading log and see what homework they completed. On Fridays we send home a weekly communication sheet.

School-age families use our Brightwheel app for daily communication, notifications, and billing.

Enrichment Programs

Our school-age/afterschool children can take advantage of nearly all enrichment programs, including tutoring, Chinese lessons, piano, tennis, screen-free coding with LEGO, and others as they become available.
